Visili’s: Civilised cuisine

Genevieve Vieira

A small slice of Greece, nestled in heart of the city, Visili's has relocated to Rivonia Junction (formerly situated at The Wedge Shopping Centre).

Revamped by the owner, Vasili Vacratsas, the place resembles a modern Mediterranean-style restaurant, small yet spacious with white and blue interior that extends to the outside patio. It’s also quiet and peaceful – minimalist in appearance, though the food is indulgent.

With traditional Greek music in the background, casual and informal in style, Visili’s offers good food at a good price and a dining experience suitable for the whole family. With an extensive a la carte menu that offers both Greek and Portuguese specialties, the kitchen serves up a delicious prawn curry, as well as a variety of seafood dishes for which Vacratsas is renowned. There’s also a selection of chicken, steak, pizza, and pasta dishes – and the popular lamb kleftiko – each listed with a suggested wine pairing.

An in-house butchery guarantees freshness, which undeniably manifests in the quality of the food (even if the facility is not great in terms of aesthetics). The sirloin is a house favourite: tender, tasty and cooked to perfection.

If you’re still not satisfied, try a sweet treat – chocolate mousse, crème caramel or Greek kisses.
