While visiting Gold Coast friends last Saturday night we were invited to dine at Hellenika.
They were smug about their restaurant choice and we were dubious.
Well, what a wonderful dining experience!
The food was awesome....we opted for the a la carte menu, trying many small dishes to share and they were all delicious, salty pork belly, grilled lamb cutlets and zucchini chips were standouts. We had a fussy 16 year old with us and she loved all the dishes. We drank the Mudgee Apple Tree Flat sem sauv blanc. The wait staff were cheery and attentive, and the atmosphere was buzzing.
We will definitely be eating at Hellenika next time we visit the Gold Coast.

Hellenika is my favourite restaurant on the Gold Coast. Great food, great service and great buzz. We introduced friends from Brisbane to the restaurant last night, and they just loved it. We ate from the a la carte menu and chose dishes to share, they included their Taramosalata, Zucchini chips (absolutely yummy) Dolmades (best ever, so light and silky) egg plant Moussaka, and their house speciality, slow cooked lamb which is to DIE for. As it is such a popular dish it's best to order a portion when you make your booking. All the dishes are so fresh and the service is fantastic. The waiter's recommendations are always worth considering as they are very knowledgeable and keen to help. We chose the early sitting (in at 6pm out by 8.15pm) which worked perfectly as we were all feeling rather full, so headed for home and had Maggie Beer icecream on our deck, washed down with a glass of Baileys Irish Cream. A perfect end to a wonderful evening. Thanks Hellenika, can't wait to return.

We've been here several times over the past couple of years & have never been disappointed. The wait staff are exceptional, friendly, courteous, helpful, unobtrusive, but at your side before you think to attract their attention. If you love your Greek you'll simply fall head over heels for the quality & range of choice. There was not one thing missing it was just simply all there. A brilliant experience & one we will continue to have into the future.

As locals we thought we knew all the good places to eat on the GOLD COAST. How wrong can you be? This is a very sophisticated restaurant where you could be mistaken for thinking you were in Europe or here at home Melbourne.
Great Atmosphere, great vibe, sensational food and staff that care. We had the banquet $55 per person to get to taste a variety of dishes. Lamb shoulder was so tender you could cut it with a spoon. We will be making this a regular from now on. Wine list was another plus. Make this a must go if you are on the Gold Coast

We ate here on Saturday evening having booked it some days in advance having read such wonderful reviews of it.
The restaurant absolutely lived up to its reputation with AMAZING food (my husband said its the best meal he had ever eaten!) and a wonderful atmosphere. It was packed with people and I think booking in advance is a must. Despite many tourists on the Gold Coast it seems this is also a favorite amongst the locals. We had a chat with the people at the table next to us and they were from Brisbane and regularly drove all the way just to eat at this restaurant. I understand why.
Portion sizes were good and the lamb was to die for - everything cooked to perfection!

Overall amazing food and wine, incredible atmosphere and a very joyful evening out!
