Wasn’t impressed. Overpriced food and not that good either. Clearly no-one in the kitchen or restaurant have eaten in Greece!! Xenia and all he Greek joint much better - be heading there in future!

We have been before and really enjoy coming to Hellenika. We live locally so very easy to get to. The setting is great, even more so since the rooftop bar is operating.
The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is always fantastic.
It is our restaurant of choice for 'special' occasions.

I have always loved Hellenika however this is my first visit since it has reopened and was very disappointing especially in terms of value for money and food quality. We ordered the grilled octopus and the serving was not great. It was totally over cooked and over priced:) it was cut into tiny little pieces and was really only a few pieces as well as some beans. It was $36 very disappointing. The staff however were very friendly and provided great service as always..

Beautiful food and very helpful and friendly staff.
Only problem was the noise. Maybe have the music turned down a little
so people not trying to talk over that noise.
What an amazing wine list.
Thoroughly enjoyed :)

We were visiting from Sydney with my extended family. I had been to the restaurant with my husband a few years ago and thought it was great. So decided to visit again. The food did not disappoint, especially the Moussaka - delicious. Our waitress was great. She really looked after the three kids that we had with us and was very attentive and let us rearrange our table without a fuss.

We had been recommended to eat at Hellenika for our weekend up to the Gold Coast from Melbourne. We were greeted warmly by the staff . We ordered the banquet as it was a great way to try the different flavours , they also kindly accounted for my food allergies but then the food came out so quickly that you couldn't enjoy it. It was amazing food but perhaps we made the mistake to come in at 6pm but we weren't told our table was also booked for 8pm as well. It was a shambles when the 8pm arrived and we were still there and we were ask to leave. Disappointing because the staff were apologetic but perhaps it would have been better for them to tell us of the second session as we are not locals.

we had a lovely evening, unfortunately it was so noisy that you were unable to have a decent conversation. Noticed a table of ladies who were using their phones, wondered whether they were texting one another because they couldn't hear themselves around the big table. Its definitely not cosy. We would recommend the food, wine and service but would point out the fact that it was very noisy.

Was a busy night we had a 5 45pm booking till 8pm. Meals are on the small side. Would suggest ordering extra plates if doing tapas. Great wine. They dont take bookings for upstairs which is where I was wanting to sit with our group. However service was great fast meals served quickly and fresh. Great night will be back. Thanks for a lovley night

Best food I’ve had in years. Lamb ribs cooked to perfection, never had softer lamb. Great choice of fresh fish with Hapuka being a stand out. Amazing wine list. Spot on interiors. Staff were friendly but professional. Busy early which is great for early birds.

It was not convivial to intimit conversation between as the background music was trying to outdo the conversation so everything was loud. Consequently just trying to understand what the waiter was telling you was difficult. The food though was really good and plentiful. We had one of the banquets and could not finish it all.

Very disappointed and l was so looking forward to the experience at Hellenika.
The food was average including the tough calamari and soggy bread.Service was slow and a lot of staff not doing much.The presentation of the food was poor and did not match the upmarket enviroment.
We asked our waiter what was going on as we had spoken to many people who said the restaurant was great but he advised us all the good chefs had gone to Brisbane for the opening of their new site .
To top it off they gave us the wrong bill.

Very pricey for what you got...

Good service, but the food lacked flavour and no wow factor from any dish really.

I did expect more from the venue didn't really have a Greek feel to it either...

Nothing really great with the experience, but nothing drastically bad either...

An average experience for us all...

We were very disappointed with our evening at Hellenkia recently. We had two coeliac friends in our party of six, and we felt that the menu choices were very limited. Our wine wait person was very friendly and knowledgeable however our waitress was not helpful in any way. Even after much prompting she gave us no assistance with menu choices or dish sizes and on ordering we were later told that half of our choices were not available. Our starters were enjoyed by all however we were all extremely disappointed with our main menu dishes. We came to your restaurant with high expectations and left very disappointed.

Uncomfortable. Overpriced. Loud
We have both worked in hospitality and my partner for over 10 years in Michelin star restaurants. It’s was far from a Greek style restaurant and the food had no soul. We were pushed out of our table.... the old Hellenika had spirit, atmosphere and unbelievably good food.

Great food; it is though noisy , as it’s a large restaurant with lots of groups. It still didn’t detract from the great food.
