What a disappointing experience. Our friends arrived first, were asked if they'd like some olives before even seeing a menu, and were charged $9 for them when they had 3 olives. Whatever, I can let that go. Our waiter was friendly on first impressions. We all ordered the $49 banquet and the food was quite good, albeit not all that... More

So I have previously totally enjoyed the Williamstown and Kew venues, and wonder why the Brunswick venue is so behind. The food was average, difficult to get a drink and the seating too close to one another. Just go to the Willie or Kew venues.

I personally don't really fancy Greek food. However the food here was exceptional. The meats were well cooked and delicious. The lamb was so tender it dropped off the bone. Portions were fairly generous as well. Fish roe was great as well. The maitre d was extremely pleasant and attentive. Loved her service and honest recommendations. Place was packed though... More

It was a long time between visits and I was pleasantly surprised. We chose the Olympian banquet and were happy with all the food. This time they allowed a rest between courses and we were not rushed out of the restaurant. While the food was delicious the serving of meat was minimal. In fairness the waiter did inform us we...

The food was fantastic, we indulged in the banquet my only feedback is I would have enjoyed the courses spaced out a little more. The restaurant is noisey and this added to the atmosphère. Seating could be a little cramped. The staff very attentive and the facilites very clean

We had very nice dinner. We were 8 people. Ordered different meals. Fish lamb mezes starters etc. Everything was very delicious. I liked the staff too. The only concern is that restaurant is little far from center. I recommend lamb and Spanish Mackrell

I've been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and each time has been wonderful. My favourite part of the feast is the trout roe dip "delicious ". The seafood is my favourite feast and on one occasion Greek donuts were part of the dessert so melt in your mouth, the thought of them are making my mouth water.... More

Excellent service, but unfortunately we found the food lacked flavour, we also thought the $69.00 set menu to be grossly overpriced for what was supplied.

Really nice Greek style restaurant. They have an excellent menu full of classic Greek dishes, they also offer a couple of banquet options which I would highly recommend, just come with an empty stomach as they are very filling. The drink list is good with beer and wine options. It can be very busy so always a good idea to... More

Great atmosphere! We arrived at 6:00pm on a Saturday night and the place was BUZZING! Great smells and a real happy, celebratory feel. Service was pretty good, but not fantastic. Food was excellent and good value for money. There were plenty of options for a non dairy eater. Our two meals plus two ouzo came to $86. We had the... More

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.
