One of the best meals I have had. Not only was the food very good - great lamb shoulder - but the service was excellent with great advice re portion sizes and how much to order then very obliging with the doggy bag. A great memorable night out

Had an early 5.30 booking.. Ordered the banquet and we were very impressed with the food, the service and the atmosphere.. Hard to go past the beautiful Taramasalata dip, Saganaki , zucchini flowers all really great ... The lamb was so soft and just fell apart( someone could teach my husband how to do that!!)..certainly a busy restaurant with staff... More

1. Food was great 2.Service was pleasant 3.But a lack of respect if you have forgotten a garment as it gets thrown away within days, as lost and found is more of remove and dump :-(

Definitely not an average Greek restaurant. In fact it's nothing like any Greek restaurant I have ever been into. It's chic. It's niche and it's very popular, but that might be on the back of the celeb chef who owns it. We have celeb chef owned restaurants here in the UK which are equally as undynamic. The food was very...

Firstly they offered us a shot of ouzo! That's the tradition apparently!! So accepted to later find out it was $18 each! Expensive start. Then the meal was below average . I don't understand why chefs change a good original Greek recipe/dish leave it as yaya made it--- the twist didn't work. We won't go back - sorry but the... More

Poor service. Beer tap not working, couldn't have a beer. Menu wasn't explain properly. Was very expensive for what it was. Service was very rushed. Food came out very quickly, and before we had even received our drinks and like I said my beer never came. Food was average, I paid $50 for some chicken chips and tzatziki dip. Moussaka... More

We had many dishes from the menu. But to be honest none stood out. Everything was a good standard but did not pop of the plate or make a huge impression.

We live not far from Hellenic and come here on a semi regular basis. It's very casual, you can find a family of eight but you can also find a couple enjoying their food. It's always busy, but we don't mind. I've taken my son here numerous times, from when he was a tiny little thing, sleeeping in a massive... More

My third visit to not so fat George's restaurant. He knows how to run a restaurant with the service second to none. The food ad always was superb. Not so sure about the greek wine that is completely different style to Australian wine. Overall a great dining experience.

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.
