Had a wonderful breakfast and some sweet treats to walk around with. Try the Greek coffee it's vy different than American but good! Prices are very affordable.

If you are a fan of authintic greek bakery goods then you have to stop here. Tarpon Springs location not far from Clearwater or St. Pete. Excellent selection and the quality was over the top. Could have purchased one of everything so keep the sampler in mind if you can't make up your mind. The aroma when you walk into the store is hevenly. The staff is helpful and friendly even if they are really busy. This place is worth the wait.

The place is just fantastic: superb food, great service, nice atmosphere, all much better than any other Greek restaurant I have been to in the Bay area. From the sangria to the baklava, everything was delightful. And something quite unusual happened at the end: after we had paid our bill, the waiter and hostess came over and profusely apologized for having erroneously charged an additional plate, something which we hadn't noticed. They immediately brought us a correct bill and cancelled the previous transaction. You don't see that every day!

Best place on the docks!
Hella's food is down right lip smackin' tongue squealin' goodness. You cant go wrong here,big fat healthy greek portions,fresh as can be food and pastries and a good wait staff.
Ive been eating here for over a year at least once a month, my food has never been wrong,always been very good and it comes wicked fast!
The Gyro's are the size of a infant,the french fry's are of classic fair,hot and tasty.
The entire menu is grand and you'll need a to-go box fe sure.
Stop in at the bakery and have some of their chocolate cheese cake or anything for that matter because its all good here.

Heres the tip - order the flaming cheese and scream "OPA!" 'cause Hella's is Hella good!

This was my husband's first trip to Tarpon Springs and having been to Hellas before, I recommended we eat there. The atmosphere is lively and the service excellent. They did not disappoint! Barbara, our waitress, wisely steered us away from ordering too much food, but we still had so much food we took it with us for later. We split a Greek salad (so fresh tasting we are still talking about it), a very generous portion of spanakopita, and a Greek combination plate. The combination plate had a little bit of everything and did not disappoint! The fish there is fresh and they really have something for everyone on the menu. We washed it all down with a half a bottle of retsina. The bakery next door is worth a visit if you are too stuffed but want to take a little baklava home with you! There is parking behind Hellas as well, ask about their parking special.
