This was my second visit to Hellenic Republic and again, it did not disappoint! I was part of a large group so we had the banquet. Staff are extremely friendly and are happy and willing to cater to all dietary requirements. Everything was exceptional but the standouts for me were the white cod dip, scallops, grain salad and the rice... More

I didn't want to like this place when I came in with friends cos of the celeb factor but I would have to admit, once I had the tarama I was a fan. Perfectly cooked lamb, great wine list and service that was there when you needed it.

From CBD, take the Tram 1 or 8 and get some serious food. This was a real surprise for us, but the experience was the best we've had in Melbourne. Exponentially great food, friendly staff. Everything was great. I am celiac and they have gluten free bread they grill on the fire to go with the gluten free dips. I... More

This was my first experience of eating Greek . There was a buzzing atmosphere and the food came out fast. It was yummy especially the slow cooked lamb & chicken. We had grilled fig with delicious dressing and a yummy dip. We also ordered an exotic chips which turned out to be frozen deep fried chips with some dressing ....... More

Beautiful Greek menu combining traditional fare with a modern twist and professional service in Mediterranean influenced surrounds. We had the trapezi share menu for lunch and found the servings for two very generous, so go with an appetite! Highly recommend the taramasalata, fig saganaki, plus items from the grill. The rice pudding with shortbread, pistachios and salted caramel sauce was... More

Third visit - been each time we've visited Melbourne and never disappointed. Quite the opposite. Location is far from the city precinct but worth the effort. Food is always delicious. My kids (now 11 & 14) absolutely love it. Was their one wish for this visit (apart from the Australian Open) - eat here! Service is friendly and efficient. We'll... More

Went to Hellenic Republic earlier in the month, the experience has been nothing short of spectacular, from the attentive service of staff to the delicious Greek food. Very warm and friendly from the moment you walk into the restaurant. Would have no hesitation to recommend anytime, please try the feast if going in a group, magic happens.
