We came with a dog, and our dog was welcome there. We had a Greek salad. Surprisingly, there is a tasty potato salad under greens. We also have lamb kebab. All food was excellent.

Never disappoints, Food, service and atmosphere is unequaled in the US and rivals even Greek restaurants in Greece. We make it a point to go here as much as possible every time we are in Central Florida. A favorite is the Greek platter, cannot get...enough of Pastitso, Mousaka, Gyro and Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) every thing is great. After lunch or dinner we hit the bakery for spanikopita, tiropita and sweet bread to take home.More

Food is amazing! The restaurant and bakery have a great selection. It’s a very pretty ambiance and the service was great (especially Billy, he gave great suggestions and was very conversational!)

Hellas is our go-to restaurant when we visit Tarpon Springs and it's a fantastic place. The service is always good and the food is fresh and flavorful. It's always great when you go to a Greek restaurant that serves saganaki and theirs is delicious. We've...had many of their dishes including grilled octopus, fried calamari, baked and fried grouper, and other broiled fish and they've been perfectly cooked and seasoned each time. The sides have also been great and their lemon potatoes are quite good. We've had a few desserts as well and the galaktoboureko and rice pudding are great! The restaurant also has a bakery and we can't come here without getting koulourakia and kourabedies to take home (they travel well!). Hellas is a great restaurant overall!More

I have tried to find a better Greek salad. Nope. Hellas is still the best. Hubby got muscles- delicious. They do charge extra for pita bread, heads up. That said we will always be back. Wait staff and greeters extremely friendly. Bakery is drool-worthy! Save...room or take some home. If you haven’t been here-GO!More

Can you say delicious? This restaurant is wonderful. The food is fabulous and the service is impeccable. We enjoyed everything and were so full when we left - no room for dessert. Very authentic!

Me and my family have been coming here for over 25 years and my grandparents grew up coming here. So friendly and kind. DO NOT EXPECT to be served right away, they’re a very good very popular bakery with many people coming in and out...at all times! Be patient and kind, because the pastries that you get out of this place are mouth watering and truly delicious AND WORTH ANY WAIT YOU MAY HAVE!!!More

My husband and I visited Tarpon Springs with our friends last Saturday 09/10/2022 and came to Hellas for lunch. We had THE BEST waiter, Nohas, and not only was he very efficient, he had stories about Greece in regards to Saganaki and the greek egg...lemon sauce. He was so awesome and when we come down next month, we hope to request him. We took a picture with him by your bubbling fountain, he was like family by the end of our meal! Besides the service, the food was DELICIOUS! The Saganaki, gyros, the Dolmades, and the Chicken Souvlaki were all amazing.More

Spent the first week of September in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Stopped in to Hella's for something to drink and their famous baklava. The staff is welcoming and the service was top notch. Their baklava is exceptional:flaky phyllo, honey, finely chopped walnuts and the perfect amount...of cinnamon. It is so delicious... I purchased more to take home!More

My husband and I were in Tarpon Springs this past Friday and went to Hellas first for lunch. Everything was great - food and dessert. Later in the afternoon after we had checked into the Hampton Inn, we decided that we should go back for...dinner which we did. Out only problem at dinner was our server, Alexia. I guess because she knew we were not going to order dessert at dinner as we had one at lunch, she - on her own and without any instruction from my husband - brought him a 2nd beer - and then put it on our bill! When I questioned her about it, she made up some story. I really think that you don't need her as a server as she gives your very nice and reputable restaurant a bad name.More

Three of us enjoyed lunch on a very busy Saturday (Hippie Fest). After a reasonable wait we were seated and served by a very amicable & effecient waiter. The Gyros meat was perfecly seasoned, thinly sliced but VERY generous serving, in a warm pita bread....If only Sarasota was just a little bit closer we could go more often.More

My advice is take your top 5 choices and share with a group! The bakery is fantastic--the only downside is having to choose from all the treats!

Beyond Delicious! Amazing service from Tricia, who is able to memorize everyone’s order at the table of 10 next to ours and then ours as well. The food is SO good you can’t stop eating it.

First time here on a recommendation and it was a good one. Hot day so we opted for the air conditioning inside. Happy we did as it rained. Nice selection of Greek menu. Our waitress was very professional and courteous. Refills on drinks and. Etc.
