Ladokolla on the Hill

Highgate Hill

Ladokolla on the Hill is a hidden gem of a little Greek taverna tucked away on a Highgate Hill shopping strip between a laundromat and a bottle shop.

Except for the smattering of tables outside it would be easy to blink and miss it but Ladokolla is well worth seeking out as it serves what is arguably the most authentic Greek cuisine to be found in Brisbane.

Take a step inside and you'll think you've arrived in Greece, from the mouth-watering aromas wafting from the kitchen and music to the wooden dining tables, framed Greek philosopher quotes on the walls and little touches like the small collection of Greek icons by the front door.

To start with there's a small selection of delicious appetisers including pan-fried saganaki; taramas or tzatziki; manitari gemisto (stuffed mushroom with a trio of peppers and cheese) and patates lemonate (oven baked potatoes marinated in a mixture of fresh lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and oregano).
