Like too many Melbournians, I had never been to this restaurant despite being an avid watcher of Masterchef. I had some take-away from an affiliated restaurant a couple of years ago and was so disappointed with the lack of flavour that I really didn't want to go here. Well, I thought I'd give it a try. Let me say now... More

Very tasty food and very attentive service. This place is a licence to print money. The decor is simple. The food is excellently prepared, but mainly basic Greek classics. The drinks are expensive.

Great night out thanks Hellenic Republic! We had a range of delicious dishes to share; I recommend all of them: haloumi and cranberries, figs and witloof, broccolini parsnip fennel purée and preserved lemon, grilled octopus, slow cooked pork cheeks, and some other delicious stuff. I guess this is a modern take on Greek cuisine. I can't wait to go again.

We did the $69 banquet which was very filling. The portions were very generous. Pity that the tap beer wasn't working which meant we waited for about 15 minutes in vain for a beer. We did get a free beer in return which was good. Very noisy and loud so if you are looking for a quiet romantic restaurant this... More

I'm not a fan of Greek food until I went to this restaurant. Everything was so nice! Even the plain pita bread was so yummy. The service was friendly, quick & attentive. What worries me is this restaurant will completely ruin my standard of Greek food. I may go to Greece one day and will think the food there is... More

We ate here for lunch and enjoyed our meal. It is share plate style and all of us agreed that the food was delicious, especially the chicken which I would recommend. In fact I would recommend every dish.We ordered a small plate and it was very generous. The service was attentive and helpful when navigating the menu and the wine.... More

Lamb shoulder incredible but from all Saganaki was the best choice. We had 6 different dishes (lamb, octopus, broccolini, pita, eggplant, sagabaki) and this is enough for 4 of people were full, with a glass of wine and shared dessert for 200 AUD is pretty amazing for a quality you get. Friend we went with is a chef from Amsterdam... More

I've been to Hellenic before, but appreciate it so much more after dining with my 22 month old twins. We obviously chose the early seating, the service and food were amazing. Our lovely young waiter suggested food suitable for my babies and they happily sat at the table and smashed the delicious food for over 2 hours. Good quality inclusive... More
