We arrived, the place was not buzzing no atmosphere no Greek music playing. A rude waiter trying to get 7 people to make a decision regarding the food and reminding us we only have 2 hours to eat by watching the clock and asking should I come back. The pitta bread was not pitta and was a pizza base cut... More

The food was good and portions were big. There was 4 of us a8 we shared 3 mains plus a salad and we couldn't finish the food. They even gave us another serve of pita bread on the house, without us ordering it. The service was great. The drawback was the noisy environment.

Came here to celebrate a significant birthday and wasn't disappointed. The service was probably the best I've had in a long while. Just on top of everything she knew the menu and was very friendly. You cannot ask for more. We started with the taramasalata and saganaki just beautiful. Then the spanakopita and the slow roasted lamb should. So tender... More

I went in with high expectations and they were exceeded. We loved the food, it was delicious but to match this was the commitment of the staff. Their friendliness as well as their professionalism were outstanding. I will definitely visit this restaurant when I am back in Melbourne.

The food and service at Hellenic Republic is impecable every time. They are happy to cater for my son who is Coelaic and requires a strict gluten free - nothing is too much trouble.Food is always fresh and there is plently of variety. Always book this for a special occasion or family catch-up. Highly recommend it.

After an event happened in our relationship i secretly booked a suprise dinner. We got to the restaurant and we were greeted warmly by staff. We had an amazing 3 course dinner tailored by our waiter. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to have a romantic evening, a business dinner or a family celebration to visit Hellenic Republic.

Eight friends getting together. We had a range of share plates. Highlights included the dip, the croquet, the chicken and lamb from the spit. The desserts (rice pudding and donuts) were fantastic. The service was exceptional with Alyna being attentive and ensuring each plate was served at the right time with appropriate breaks. We shared two bottles of Greek wine... More

Visited with my boys 12&13. The service was great. Our waitress couldn't have been more helpful. I was undecided on which wine to get and she made a suggestion and let me taste before deciding. We decided on the 4 course sharing menu. Food was great and there was plenty of it (we couldn't eat it all). My son wanted... More

My boyfriend and I love this restaurant! We have dined in a few times but now often just get takeaway as the restaurant is usually booked out! We order the family pack which we get 2 meals out of and the food is all delicious and very fast. I particularly like the lamb, taramasolata (best I've had) and risogalo. When... 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.
