Hellenic Republic is a traditional Greek taverna with a contemporary twist - perfect for modern Melburnians!Our food philosophy is simple – fantastic, fresh produce to prepare traditional recipes in a clean, contemporary style. At Hellenic, kefalograviera saganaki is served with sweet peppered figs; local wines are served by the half litre and succulent meats are cooked over char coal.We recommend our Trapezi menu as the best way to dine at Hellenic Republic, where our chefs prepare a selection of our finest dishes for guests to share. The restaurant seats 120 guests, or alternatively can accommodate up to 220 standing guests for a stand up cocktail function.

Great take away

A new baby makes dining out difficult so we opted for take away. Really first class food well packed in plastic take away containers. The spit roast chicken was particularly good. A delicious balance of caramelised meat and seasoning. The courgette and pepper salad was great with it. Not cheap but... read more

Hellenic Republic delivers food to a level we read about and hope to find. The lamb just melts in your mouth, supported with great roast potatoes and beetroot salad. Open style kitchen under control by a professional team displaying all the action with ease. Wine list by the glass is very short and could be expanded. Great atmosphere which at... More

My husband and I had dinner there last night to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by Sarah who is much more than a waitress and more like a host - she was wonderful and gave us excellent service, she was so helpful when ordering food and drinks, and even brought out a special birthday baclava...

Celebrating a birthday while visiting from Perth I booked online in advance. Unfortunately when I came to revising the booking the 'computer said no'. Well that's the only problem we had. I rang the restaurant and everything was fixed up. We arrived and it was like a big Greek taverna (we assume because we haven't been to Greece... yet) Very... More

We arrived early for our 845pm sitting, and were promptly shown to the bar and served drinks. When the rest of our party arrived, and the table cleared we were shown to our seats. The recommendation was to have a banquet, and we chose the $69pp one. The service throughout the night was exceptional, there was no waiting for food... More

This is an unassuming little restaurant, with a casual feel to the décor. The staff are extremely well trained and knowledgeable from the wine, to food to the larger business. We had the $69pp banquet and the first round was delivered quickly, with great timing in between each set of dishes. Standout dishes were the taramasalata - which was divine,... More
