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.

Try the beef cheeks. They melted in our mouth. Food tasting that good sets an unobtainable standard for other restaurants. What a great night out

When we are in Melbourne, our children and grandchildren always want to take us to Hellenic Brunswick. We all love the food. Share plates are the go. Henry (10) thinks Saganaki is the winner - hard to disagree. Chargrilled octopus wow! Roast pork belly and Cypriot grain salad bigger wow. They are all outstanding! Service is good to good plus....

Went on a very busy Saturday night ( booked). Only slight gripe was that we had to stand for a few minutes before being greeted and shown to our table. Found the staff really helpful. Great vibe. Food really good and simply loved the spice pear dessert.

Recommended by my Osteopath as a regular haunt of his. The wait staff were excellent. Our waitress recommended the share platters, there were 2; 12 plate or 15 plate. Thankfully we opted for the 12 plate meal. It was a LOT of food. I had a bit of a cold so my taste buds weren't at their best. The pita... More

If you love Greek food and a happy, family atmosphere, you must go to "HELLENIC REPUBLIC" at Brunswick!!! The food is absolutely delicious and the servings generous. As much as I savoured every mouthful, I just couldn't finish my meal. Next time, I won't pig out on the pita and selection of dips! They were amazing! The staff were very... More

We came here on a mother daughter weekend hoping to catch George in the kitchen having watched Masterchef for the first time. The food was delicious. The slow cooked lamb was to die for and the white taramasalata divine. Staff were really helpful - especially with an all Greek wine list. But they served our dessert and told us a... More

Not being a big fan of Greek food I hoped my opinion would be changed by this restaurant owned by a master chef and with good reviews. What a disappointment. The place was full and buzzed with a nice ambience. We went for the smaller 11 course set menu and this was way too much food. They did well to... More

Went with friends and shared most plates. Everything was super tasty and yummy. Our eyes were way to big for our bellies. Will be going back for sure!
