To share and connect with friends
“Authentic Greek cooking is authentically pure when it entices your senses. That’s what we strive for at the Charcoal Pit. Greek food is created with simple flavours, but it’s not easy to get right. It takes a lot of heart and a lot of soul.
In fact, nearly every Greek family gathering, party and celebration has authentic home-cooked Greek cuisine at its core. Delicious, fresh and seasonal Greek food is vital to our family’s way of life and how we enjoy time together.
Our goal is to inspire you to experience simple Greek food the way we experienced it as kids growing up. In particular, how Greek dishes bring people together to appreciate family time and strengthen lifelong friendships.”

Got a taste for Greek?
The Charcoal Pit Souvlaki Bar and Greek Tavern has bought authentic Greek-style cooking to Ballarat and the Australian public for many years. We’re fun, loud and, above all, we simply love sharing great tasty Greek food with you!
To create Greek tavern meals with souvlaki meat that’s juicy, full of flavour and succulent—we believe—this can only be truly achieved with a Greek-style charcoal pit for spit roasting.
Our secret to providing the very best souvlaki Ballarat and Greek cuisine in Ballarat is to use the freshest of freshest ingredients – then we don’t need to disguise a lack of flavour with lots of add-ons. Simple is definitely best for high-quality flavourful Greek dishes.
We welcome you to come in to the Charcoal Pit Ballarat and try for yourself today!
