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.

This restaurant is a particular favourite in Melbourne. My husband and I dine regularly driving from the Mornington Peninsula - there is nothing like it in our neck of the woods. The food is fabulous and unlike most restaurants George loves vegetables, pulses and grains. Try the Cypriot Salad - gorgeous! The haloumi with figs is an inspiration. We love... More

Being Greek we thought will it be authentic but surprisingly the food was really good,a little different to typical Greek but the flavors of Greece were certainly there. The price was a little high but the quality was there and of course being Greek we would have wanted bigger servings .But having said that the place had good atmosphere, good... More

This was one of the nicest meals I have EVER had! We had the Athenian Menu which admittedly was not the cheapest, but at the end of the meal was worth every cent! So much flavour! I cant wait to go back again.

Hellenic continues to serve great Greek food with modern touches. Pleasing atmosphere and service is good, staff know there menu and don't be shy to ask for advice on food selection. This is an easy tram ride from Melbourne city but you must call to book. Personally I think this is the best of Columbaris's food places.

Ran in to get a quick lunch and ended up sitting down with fluffy pitas,fava (eggplantish dip),tzaziki, broccolini/feta/almond salad, tomato/feta/avocado salad and a beautifully cooked haloumi/tomato dish. Service is super fast, knowledgeable and very hipster (but in a non-annoying way) this place is all about the food! $81 dollars wa snot cheap, but good enough to leave a $9 tip.

We visited Melbourne over Christmas and were looking forward to visiting one of George's restaurant, we were not disappointed. Even though we had not booked they kindly squeezed us in on a shared table. The restaurant has an inviting Greek atmosphere. Even though it was a very busy Saturday night, the staff were friendly and provided excellent service without being... More

Hellenic Republic was recommended to us by family in Melbourne. We decided on the banquet as it seemed impossible to choose between all the lovely sounding items on the menu. We chose the smaller banquet option and had more than enough food, taking the extra home. For the entree and mains options they catered with gluten and dairy free alternatives... More

Being an avid Masterchef Australia follower, I was very envious of my daughter who lives in Melbourne, as she had had the opportunity of eating at George Calombaris' Hellenic Republic. We visited Melbourne from South Africa in December, and on the last evening our host Nicholas treated us to dinner at Hellenic Republic. He ordered the banquet, which alleviated the... More

This is a must when in Melbourne! We had an 8pm reservation and our service was excellent but they had presented out starters and main meals within the hour. Same thing happened last visit too. Late bookings should be more relaxed we had plenty of time! That said the food is amazing and the quality is still high and excellent... More
