Hellenic Republic

The decor at Hellenic Republic is stunning both outside and in. The food is homely but sophisticated at the same time. I have to stop myself from having takeaways from here!

I was really excited and looking forward to eating at Hellenic Republic. I was underwhelmed. I'm not convinced by this modern trend in mid-level dining to rush you through and out the door in time for the next sitting. I found the food to be average at best, although the rest of our party were raving about the lovely meal... More

We had the 12 course banquet which was huge! Best Greek food I have ever tasted. Felt like I didn't need to eat for days afterwards! Delicious!

Have been here a fair few times - with partner or group of friends. Banquet is delicious, but by the end was force feeding myself the DELICIOUS risogalo... So go hungry!!

We had the banquet, great for sharing, lovely dips, starters etc but way too filling with all the pre main nibbles. Very nicely prepared food and great service but you're only allocated a 2 hr sitting to get through all that food (12 courses). Will just order from the menu next time. Oh and the wine is expensive - $85... More

I was let down by this Greek "taverna". The service was terrible. Our waitress was nervous, spoke too fast and couldn't explain the concept of the menu or the shared plates. She was overbearing to the point we hid the water bottle so she would stop filling our glass. The best dish I tasted was the grilled haloumi. The pork... More

Catering to the varied requirements of carnivores and vegetarians can challenge a restaurant. Hellenic Republic provided the perfect place to satisfy each diner...there is a great selection of interesting and tasty salads and sides, several vegetarian options and the meat was terrific - especially the herbed chicken.... The staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere was relaxed and happy. Would... More

took my mum here for her birthday dinner and everything was perfect! The service was fast and the staff were very knowledgable and friendly, advising us on serving sizes, etc. Our waitress even brought my mum a slice of baklava with a candle when she heard it was her birthday! The food is incredible- everything we tried, we loved. Very... More
