Visiting Melbourne to catch up with family, having recently returned from Greece our son recommended Hellenic Republic. Always enjoyable to watch the cooking staff at work, we ordered the $49 share plates. The saganaki with figs was a highlight and the dip really one of the better ones. The wine was OK if a little pricey as were the beers.... More

Went here for a birthday dinner and had a very nice experience. The food was lovely - very tasty. Portions were large - we couldn't finish the food and staff offered to package it up to take away. Service was very good and staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend

I have just written a negative review for a sister restaurant of this Hellenic Republic which is near water. However, this Hellenic (Brunswick) is the exact opposite in every way. The four of us arrived at for lunch without a booking and were happily accommodated with a mention that we would have to finish by a certain time because the... More

The staff are excellent and not the subject of any criticism. To be honest though the food was good but very overpriced for what it was. There are many more Greek restaurants around that do better. For a banquet the variety was very limited. Not looking for huge portions but just variety. Surely that is what the name banquet suggests.

I had a chance to go to this really awesome restaurant in Brunswick. I love Greek cuisine and I definitely loved the food. Don't expect to get special treatment there as they are very busy almost all the time. But the staff try their best to get your order out on time. Loved the food. Never had a classic Greek... More

Very disappointed in service and banquet sizing! Left the restaurant hungry and $125 out of pocket, not the way I wanted to celebrate a birthday.

It's been a year since we've eaten here. Went for a la carte this time. Every dish ordered was tasty and fresh. Service is still fantastic, atmosphere is great and we really enjoyed every dish. I had the mussels which were very fragrant with a hint of lemongrass. Of course to finish off the night we had the loukoumades which... More

The fusion menu is well worth try... But due to the crowd and booking they go through the staff will pressure you and expected you to jump on to the chair, swallow everything you ordered and jump out 10mis to your allowed booking time. Be aware to order all you need at first go as were told that you cant... More

The banquet is fabulous as it gives you enough of several different dishes to appreciate. Food is fresh and well presented. Waiters explain each dish as it is delivered. Only criticism is it can get a bit noisy depend ending where you are seated. Love the open kitchen

Okay food and expensive wine. Not bad, the waiter was a bit precious and the meal was a bit rushed and noisy. I won't be racing back.
