I don't often write reviews but this place is well worth the effort! Stopped off in Melbourne for a couple of days on route from England to see family in Adelaide. Heard about restaurant from watching MCA and although on my own decided to give it a try for lunch on 16th Jan and was very impressed. Thanks to Chris... 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.

We were SO EXCITED to be dining at George Calombaris' restaurant but have to say we left sadly disappointed. The night we dined there it was still warm outside but the air-con inside the restaurant was freezing. We were seated at a window table in the firing line of the blast of cold air. I commented to the waitress and... More

We took my Greek mother here for her birthday dinner and we were all a little disappointed. We thought it would be cheaper to just get plates of things we like as we have some picky men in the family and the banquet didn't suit their likes. It was cheaper, worked out to about $40 per adult and we ordered... More

Early family dinner here today. Service was polite and attentive and not at all invasive. Very pleasant. The food was delightful and very generous in proportion. Much enjoyed.

Wife found this knowing it was owned by George from master chef. Pretty high expectations and we were not disappointed. Food and service was brilliant. The chef's selection was generous and varied. To be honest there was too much and for the first time ever we got a dessert doggie bag! Would recommend to any and all, is slightly out... More

Thought I would take my wife here for dinner. I really don't know what all the hype about this place is. The waiter serving us was quite abrupt (he acted like he was doing us a favour by serving us). The food was at best average and overpriced. I could have got better greek food at other places for half... More

If I’d had any doubts about having Christmas dinner (lunch) at a restaurant, they were dispelled as soon as we walked in. Tables were set with large Christmas crackers at each place and there was a festive mood in the air. Serving staff greeted us with a smile and “Happy Christmas”. We had eaten at a Greek restaurant only once... More
