Booked months ago because we didn't want to miss out. Loved it, had the $70 Banquet...too much food but it was excellent. Service good however we did feel a little rushed in the beginning. Glad I can now say been to one of George's restaurant and wasn't disappointed .

Came back after an absence of a number of years and found it had improved greatly. The menu was more interesting with great choices. Great choice of salads, with the brusel sprouts with walnuts and cheese being a standout. The prawns, calamari and scallop were fresh and beautifully cooked and the service was faultless. Our family had a wonderful evening... More

Enjoyed lunch with a group of 8 last Saturday when I visited Melbourne from SydneyTwo members of the group were Greek so they did the ordering. The food was amazing. Service was excellent too. I would recommend the roast lamb and the cheese dishes. Baklava was good too!

Came here with my extended family for a birthday. Great food and atmosphere! We had the set course menu. The food was cooked to perfection. The best bit was the rice pudding at the end.

Went to Hellenic Republic with my family and expected fantastic food given that it is managed by a 'master chef'. Unfortunately the food did not WOW me, it was good overall but nothing special. And in fact some courses of the banquet menu such as the pork skewers and lamb giro meat were tasteless and bland. I actually enjoy my... More

Family birthday outing, We booked in for the first seating and we were warmly greeted at the door. Our family ordered the Athenian fixed menu with a side of Calamari. The food just kept coming and coming and were offered more of any dish we liked. The Calamari was tender and just melted in your mouth. We had never ever... More

I was taken there by my son and his partner as a treat, and it certainly lived up to it's reputation. The food was traditional but not the usual typical heavy Greek food that I've experienced in the past. The flavours were fresh and delicious with a zing, but not too seasoned. We had the Grilled Pita Bread with Taramosalata,... More
