Very expensive and very loud
I’m sorry the group of four won’t be going back
I am a ceoliac and this rest catered so well! Plus first time I have ever tasted Greek red wine! Amazing
Great place and the food was of the highest quality.
The dishes we ordered were as good or better than on previous occasions. When we go to an ethnic restaurant we look for authentic food. Hellenika fulfilled that expectation. Being Greek I can testify to that.....in fact the quality of the ingredients, the cooking and the presentation surpasses anything I have eaten in Greece. We go to Greece yearly. Thank you Hellenika, thank you Theo, thank you to our lovely waitress.
What a great restaurant! The staff were super helpful & knowledgable, the food was delicious as were the cocktails!
Never ever disappointed with Helenika. They always deliver abover average food, service and atmosphere. High recommend Helenika.
Food fabulous! Atmosphere very relaxing and enjoyable!
Will definitely be back
We've visited Hellenika many times over the years and it's consistently good. We hadn't visited since the renovation and it's absolutely beautiful what they have done with the place.
We recently returned from a holiday in Greece, so we were excited to have Greek food again. We usually get the banquet but find it's too much food so this time we ordered the lamb, greek salad and saganaki. Now that I've had actual greek salads in Greece, I realised we don't do them properly in Australia... So I was slightly disappointed in that.
I also think that our waitress may have been having an off day, she was super lovely and the service was very friendly all round, however, first she forgot to put through our wine order, she was very apologetic for this and I understand, mistakes happen. Then, as we couldn't finish our meal, she offered to put it in a take-home box for us, which she then forgot to do...
Amazing food and friendly attentive service. The authentic Greek cruisine was evident and the atmosphere was great.
Had the King George Whiting - very bland! Waiter very helpful -good for tapas!
The slow cooked lamb shoulder which we usually order was ver tender. Ssdly the price has gone up way too much on this and all of the dishes in general.
Really like this restaurant however the noise level makes conversation difficult.
Excellent food and service, pretty good prices also. Took my girlfriend for our 3 year anniversary but not really a romantic atmosphere, great for dinner with friends or a group setting or business lunch/ dinner. Will definitely be back and recommend highly for food, wine & service.
As always the lamb shoulder was superb, it is why you go.
As always it was outstanding , very generous serves and delicious! our French waiter was amazing!
Delicious, interesting food. Fast, friendly and casual service. It lived up to its reputation.
The bar was the highlight. Food was over priced. The zucchini chips weren’t allowed sauce unless we purchased the bread and dips which I found strange so my friend bought the bread and dips so she could have a dip for her chips.
I asked if anything came with the spicy sausages and the waiter said no it’s sausages by itself. Would be nice to have potato or side salad with it. Definitely won’t come back for dinner. Only the bar.
Another awesome dinning experience at Hellenika as usual.
We went Hellenika for our Anniversary and although we arrived 10 mins early for our booking, we were ushered upstairs by a grumpy doorman. The new upstairs area was very noisy, with private functions on the go and lots of very drunk patrons. After waiting the required !0 mins we went downstairs to the restaurant and we were taken to our table in the corner. I must say, the restaurant has been very nicely renovated, although i wouldn't say it wasn't a traditional Greek atmosphere. Food was good, service was a bit slow, once the food was on the table.
Loved the food & atmosphere. Very good operators. Will definitely go again, the next time in that area.
Very busy vibrant restaurant with excellent food and service.
My husband brought me here for my birthday dinner. We had such a relaxed time and were absolutely spoiler by our waiter. The food was gorgeous and we left driving home talking about our fill custard dessert. Will be back.
To be honest, we were very disappointed with our experience. We expected high quality dining, great presentation of the dishes and big dishes. Instead, food took too long to get served (while we could see chefs with crossed arms doing nothing in the kitchen), not much quantity in the plate and the worst was the PRESENTATION, it was very poor. They did´t take care of the plates´presentation at all. For example, the halloumi cheese plate only had a piece of cheese and a piece of lemon. Terrible!
Newly renovated and great sinning experience. Exceotiona' service nd variety of Greek food. Recommend to those wanting to taste Greek food.
Excellent service, food, atmosphere and fantastic wine list.
The food was sensational and was more than we could manage. Service was exceptional. The staff were very attentive and gave us all a complimentary drink to celebrate our occasion.
I was very excited to eat at Hellenika and I did enjoy the evening. The decor is fabulous and the restaurant has a great atmosphere.
We decided to have the $75 banquet and the amount of food was probably a bit too much for 4 ladies. All of it was delicious but we did find the saganaki a little too salty and there was a quite a bit of fat on the lamb.
The service was adequate, nothing outstanding but I felt the style of food was explained well when we sat down but there was no real warmth.
Overall a lovely experience. I brought a friend who is quite fussy about what he eats. He loved the flounder and desert (chocolate something)
unfortunately our fries came out way before the other food, which you compensated by deducting from the bill which was appreciated.
My lamb cutlets were divine, however the plate of roasted vegetables was too much for 2 and quite oily.
staff were lovely and very attentive. This was my 3rd visit to Hellenika (I live in NZ) and will continue to come when I am in the Gold Coast.
Our group of 4 all enjoyed a relaxing & beautiful lunch. Shared plates were of an adequate size & the food delightful. Staff were warm & welcoming & very efficient. Most definitely will return & would recommend.
Lovely atmosphere great food and service will go back
We enjoyed a beautiful table with interstate friends, the service and our placement made the evening really special. Wonderful food and service.
Disappointing! How can a Greek restaurant run out of Greek lamb on a Saturday night! Five for the Banquet - servings sizes were small. Too many great restaurants on the GC to allow this to happen. Going somewhere else next outing!
Great introduction to Greek food and wine. Food and wine waiters made some great recommendations. Loved the clean modern look of the renovated restaurant - the service and ambiance resulted in a positively memorable experience. We will be back.
Food was good but would not return due to extremely loud music playing. When we requested it to be turned down becuase we could not hear the conversations at the table was told it was not possible - a real turn off for the young and old on our table
Really enjoyed the food and service. Had a great time with friends.
Highly recommend Hellinka - fantastic authentic Greek food and top service.
Great rooftop bar.
Lost a bit of its ambiance after re-furb.
French waitress pretty arrogant on the night, not sure if they were understaffed or not.
Moussaka serving size small for the price.
Overall good night though.
Food was excellent as was the service, polite, attentive and helpful. Did I mention the food was amazing
Food tasted very good My fish was very small and it had nothing else with it. The Greek Salad was not what I expected or that I am used to in a Greek salad. The pasta was tasty even if there was the taste of burnt food in it. Not much in the way of the Morton Bay bug meat in it. Very expensive for what it was.
A delicious highlight in the list of restaurants edging the Gold Coast's foodie scene forward. More than this, it's also a local's favourite. Through work, I've been sending media and journos to Hellenika for a number of years. They've recently renovated, so I decided to book us in for my husband's birthday... and what a choice! The meals were phenomenal (do yourselves a favour and order the banquet) as is the wine selection and the ambiance was spot on. Kudos to Simon and team.
