We opted for a bottle of Greek... More

I was looking for a place where I could take a number of family members, some not so adventurous with their eating options. I thought I would try out Hellenic Republic to see if it would fit the diverse range of people in my family. I used my sisters and daughter as guinea pigs. We had the $49.00 banquet, all... More

Although the food was good, the five of us ordered the $49 Banquet and were only given 2 Saganaki and when the mains came, the lamb, chips and slaw were only enough for 2-3. Very disappointing. We were offered more lamb but we refused because we thought we would have to pay more.

Booked Hellenic to catchup with a friend for my belated birthday. We chose the trapezi banquet for 2. This included tarama dip, saganaki topped with figs (the combined flavor were amazing. Next we were served lamb and chicken with chips. The lamb and chicken was so tender and the chips had so much flavor with the added oregano and sea... More

The Hellenic Republic restaurant in Brunswick has been a restaurant of choice over the years. Memories of its menu of generous portions and tantalising palate were embedded in my subconscious and enticed me back to this restaurant gem. It is no exaggeration to say that it was the Hellenic Republic that rekindled my interest in Greek cuisine so when I... More

We visited with friends after their recommendation, a lively atmosphere, and very noisy, quite difficult to have a conversation. We had really been looking forward to this experience and selected the sharing menu of $49 per head. The first thing noted was the amount of food was the same for 4 as what our friends had had for 2! (When... More

We went to Hellenic Republic for a birthday celebration last night. Our group has been numerous times over the last 4 to 5 years. We have always selected the banquet option, and we had previously selected a fish version of that banquet. We were looking forward to it based on our previous experiences. Whilst the food was still quite tasty,... More

Sunday lunch with another couple we hadn't seen for ages. Service was good, staff friendly, food excellent, and no one rushed us. As we hadn't seen our friends for a long time, this was really appreciated. Probably the only downside was it doesn't have much of a menu for vegetarians, not that that was a problem for us. That said,... More

The four of us went to Hellenic Republic Brunswick for dinner on a week night. We opted for an olympian banquet, and were not disappointed: a plethora of Greek starters, fish and meat mains, desserts (loukoumades included), Greek wines, all was delicious! The interior is superb. However, the two-shifts approach where we had to vacate our table by 8pm was... More
