Full marks for efficient and friendly service, but full +++ marks for the food, perfect portion size, fabulous flavours, the kind fo food you cannot cook yourself unless, well, you are Greek, and even then you would have to be good. Totally recommended, but you probably have to book, especially weekends. My only negative would be that as it was... More

Beautiful wholesome food. Thoroughly enjoyed the food. The share plates were great.it is an ideal place for good friends to eat together and not worry too much about the noise! The staff are efficient and friendly. We have enjoyed the food at the Kew venue as well.

(The risk gallo with salted caramel sauce was included on both menus and OMG!) Everything eaten was tasty and included Items of Seafood and meat. We could then... More

Atmosphere alive and really thumping! I thought the music was was fairly subdued & theme inspired. Fantastic fun waiters zipping everywhere easily handling the crowds pouring in to Hellenic Republic on this freeing night. We had the attention of a fantastic young French waiter, he was simply buzzing, clearly enjoying his job!! He popped a Birthday candle into a piece... More

We went to Hellenic Republic in Brunswick for the first time on Saturday. We were part of a group of 20 friends attending for a friends birthday and went with the banquet. Having some digestive issues and recently trialling a Low FODMAP diet to sort them out I figured this would just be one of those days where I wouldn't... More

We had the banquet, well priced at $58 per head. The taramasalata was divine, lots of bread was provided with it. A lentil based Cypriot salad was a real treat. The lamb was delicious, tangy with lemon & falling to pieces at the touch of a fork. Chicken was chicken - nothing special. Lamb ladyfingers, scallops, chargrilled fish & lahanosalata... More

A beautiful meal, the whole family loved it. Special thanks to Krysanthe for looking after us so well, and for the extra touches that made my husbands birthday so special.

As a regular visitor to Hellenic Republic in Brunswick we were delighted to accept an invitation from friends to the Kew restaurant. Perhaps we should not have selected the set menu. Staff were great and made all sorts of adjustments for picky eaters. However apart from the bread and the grilled Halloumi with peppered fig jam, which were out of... More

I am a great fan of Masterchef and attended a charity function upstairs at Kew 4th July. I was looking forward to the lamb as George is very particular how lamb is cooked. I was so disappointed as my lamb was overcooked, dry and stringy and so was my partner's and close friends on my table. It was the first... More
