Time Out says

Melbourne’s love affair with Hellenic food is fueled further at this Chapel Street venue

The futuristic outfit at Rebel Blue should alert you to the fact that this Greek restaurant isn't taking exclusive cues form the old country. It's located on one of Melbourne’s busiest eat streets (the Windsor end of Chapel street to be specific), and serves a thoroughly modern venture through Greece.

The food is still designed to share, starting at small bites, sides, salads, saganaki and things “on a stick”. You’ll find regular Hellenic dishes like stuffed tomatoes, grain salads and spanakopita (though here it’s served in a smaller, less appetite-ruining form) but you’d be wise to try some of the less traditional offerings. Rebel Blue do a Greek take on sang choy bau and Nutella is liberally applied to restaurant’s sweets – try it over the loukoumades instead of honey.

Chargrilled octopus is paired with fava beans; crisp feta filos are served with honey and sesame seeds; and there is the mandatory plate of grilled lamb cutlets or moussaka. Rebel Blue’s drinks list includes five Greek wines as well as a couple of Greek beers, plus plenty of highlights from Australian and New Zealand vineyards.
