Went to the restuarant on the off chance thst we would get a table. There were no tables available but we were offered seats at the bar. The service at the bar was as good as youd get at a table and we were well looked after. The food was excellent and I would recommend the slow cooked lamd which... More

We dined here with 12 girls, quite the task. The staff was lovely and the food was great! We had the $58 set menu. Only thing: the dessert was a bit too sweet for my taste (rice pudding). Would definitely recommend this restaurant. We had an awesome night!

Helenic Republic was recommended by a few friends to try while in Melbourne. My partner is Greek and we were both excited to eat here. We couldn’t decide what to order so we decided to get the Athenian banquet so we could sample everything. From the mezedes (appetizers) to dessert, the food was delicious. The seafood and the meat were... More

Had much better Greek food elsewhere! Fish roe dip was good. Nice pita bread. Moussaka - not enough mince, or eggplant, but tonnes of bechamel and very under seasoned. Chargrilled prawns were nice in flavour. Kefalograviera cheese was nice, but figs on top were way too sweet. Slow-roasted shoulder of lamb on the bone was nice and tender. Spanakopita was... More

We went here to experience a different Greek dining experience, the restaurant was busy but not crowded, service was quick. Food was good, but not spectacular. We started with dips and pita and the baked Feta which was just superb. We shared the chicken and potatoes which were also good, although not as good as we had had previously. Would... More

The waiter (i'm sorry I didn't catch your name) helped us so much when choosing our meals - the menu is made up of things to share with your fellow foodies. Deciding against the Price Per Head option, we chose 2 dips with bread, octopus, calamari, village salad, spanakopita, lamb / chicken, moussaka and the haloumi finished with the chocolate... More

We had a family celebration lunch and we were delighted with the fabulous home style Greek food. All food is designed for sharing so everyone got to try all dishes. We shared starters of dips and halloumi cheese with figs..amazing. We then share lamb, chicken and fish dishes and a variety of salads and potatoes. The wine is very expensive... More

The Republic is one of those restaurants that have two sittings and if they are busy and you are running late you may be asked to sit at the bar to finish your meal. Fortunately on the Thursday night that we arrived late for our 6:30 sitting due to very bad traffic, the numbers were good and we were able... More
