Great Location, Venue, Service, Food and selection of wine.
Always enjoy the food, staff, and ambience of Hellenika.
AMAZING food! Great service and nice ambiance!
Such a great meal out!
We have visited Hellenika several times and love this restaurant. The food was superb as always. We were particularly pleased that stifado was on the menu as a special as it is our favourite dish! Sadly we can only visit on special occasions as it has become very pricey, especially since the renovations have been done. We are disappointed that there are no affordable wine options on the menu. A house wine would be a welcome addition. Seriously, who pays over $1000 for a bottle of wine? Ari,our waitress, was lovely. We will be back but unfortunately not soon!
I was so looking forward to the first experience. There are multiple failures in regard to value for money:
1. The noise in the restaurant caused us to shout at each other across the table.
2. There needs to be a clearer indication of what comes with the meal. The absence of ANY vegetables was somewhat startling. Not even a green leaf. We eat regularly at George's Paragon at Sanctuary Cove and even with a basic mean some vegetable is served.
3. The size of mezenes was inconsistent. One plate was on lamb cutlet yet the pork belly was a very large size in comparison. Impossible to know what to order.
4. We went for lamb....however the waitress sad no lamb available except for a mezenes serve. Her justification was "Oh no, sorry, no lamb at this time of the evening." We were a 7:30pm booking. Judging by the waitresses response, this is apparently a usual occurrence. Very odd for a supposedly high level restaurant.
5. We had some chicken souvlaki and pork to spare so took it home. When we got home we had our leftovers plus someone else's...ironically a large piece of lamb!
I doubt we will be back. Shame....we love Greek food.
Stunning food. Would definitely come again.bwe had the banquet for 4, and although the portions looked small, we were full at the end of the evening.
Great food, great location, would highly recommend
Group if industry professionals, sampling the best the Gold Coast has to offer. Extremely extensive wine menu with a well versed Sommelier. Set menu was very ample, well presented and enjoyable. I’ll be back for some of the signature dishes.
Food was nice, but not all dishes stood out. Waitress not very friendly and had an attitude. Made us feel uneasy.
Wait Staff were very good, helpful and attentive. Menu was varied however offerings were small and no accompaniments. Food amount , quality and presentation did not justify the pricing.
Wine list was too extensive and way overpriced.
Overall it was not an enjoyable meal. Would never go back.
Service was fantastic, lamb shoulder was delicious! Wine list very extensive.
Location, ambience, food is plentiful, service is second to none. Highly recommend and would definitely dine here again.
Service was very efficient and never had to wait for drinks. Will keep coming back.
Food quality is excellent and very affordable. Best place to go for a small group of people and share the food options they have. Can't wait to go back with friends or family.
The food was fantastic but extremely over priced.
Service was excellent. Atmosphere great.
We enjoyed everything about our Hellenika experience. The dining room was beautiful, well laid out and spacious as were the tables (which allowed for sharing lots of beautiful food!) our waiter was attentive and polite and happy to explain anything. Food came quickly and was of high quality. Servings were great. Everything was fresh and simple and tasty. We were using a gift voucher that we had received as a gift and everything went smoothly. We are smallish eaters so couldn’t finish our main so a day later I am eating the most delicious Greek salad for lunch. Leftovers were provided gracefully in very stylish take away bag! One of the best meals and dining experiences I’ve had in my first year on the coast! Thanks.
Great ambient and service. Unfortunately, the food let the restaurant down. We ordered the halloumi cheese, tomato salad and pork bites. The cheese was extremely salty nearly uneatable. Tomato salad was nice, although it was just tomatoes cut into wedges slices with some seasoning. Pork bites was the best dish, in saying so, after a few bites, the salt started to get quite strong as well. I usually have lots of salt on my food, and even for me the amount of salt was to much to take on.
At this stage, I would probably go back for drinks but will be very hesitant to go back for food or refer friends to eat in this restaurant. Many Thanks,
Phenomenal food, excellent service... highly recommended
What a fabulous dining experience! I have wanted to eat at Hellenika for such a long time and finally got to go this week. My sister and I decided to go with one of the banquet options which gave us the opportunity to sample many of the different dishes. The food was spectacular from beginning to end. We actually couldn't even manage to eat the dessert so we were offered the chance to take our dessert home which we did.
The service was impeccable... friendly, attentive but not intrusive.
To say this was great value for money is an understatement.
I can't wait to dine here again. Thank you so much for the wonderful dinner. Jen
Everytime we are at the Gold Coast we make sure we go to Hellenika! Never disappoints! Our favourite Greek restaurant
I wouldn’t recommend Hellenika for a couple date - the menu and layout of food suit groups of people as you literally have to order everything as your meat dish does not come with a salad, veggies or rice it literally is just the meat.
I believe over priced for what you are getting.
Very hard to here each other.
The standard of chairs and tables do not match the price you are paying to eat there.
Service was good - but was served a flat beer thankfully was replaced.
Outstanding food, perfect service, a template for how it should be.
This was our third visit and again it was quite honestly faultless. Service was attentive. The food was innovative and beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were knowledgeable and rather fun, it's lovely to see people enjoy their job. Food was promptly served and cooked to perfection.
We found that Hellenika was amazing from the entrance. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was outstanding.
Great food, great knowledgeable staff.
Could not fault the service....our waiter was excellent. We followed his recommendations and were not disappointed....we will be back!
Amazing food, helpful and fun staff.
We can’t wait to go back!
We had your 68pp banquet and it was amazing! ... most delicious food on the Gold Coast.
Love Hellenika. My favourite restaurant on the Gold Coast. Always great service, amazing food and a wonderful night out.
Staff were very friendly
Food was amazing
Drinks at rooftop before was great
Our experience was sensational, the food was amazing, our waiter Artemis was super friendly, efficient and made our evening so enjoyable
Lovely roof top bar for a pre dinner drink. Staff were lovely, attentive and friendly; came up to get us when our table was ready for dinner downstairs. Excellent spicy Greek sausages and the most delicious, buttery spanakopita (which we couldn't finish so took home). Unfortunately meatballs were way too salty for our liking, but all in all a great experience and we will definitely return.
Valentine's Day dinner and it didn't disappoint. Good food great atmosphere
Great lunch. Food very nice. Ambience lovely. All of the staff where very attentive however one staff member a little rude and impatient.
I alway come here when up from Melbourne for the slow cooked Lamb!
This restaurant never disappoints. It deserves all the success.
The food is good but overpriced, it's probably the lack of competition on the Goldie unlike the big cities. Service is average, very pushy in terms of ordering big.
Always impeccable service and well priced, generous meals. The bar upstairs is open air and great for a pre-dinner drink to great music and ambience. The restaurant below perfect for a group dinner or more intimate setting. Love how quickly our food is served and everything is delicious.
Amazing! Loved the entire experience and the table service was wonderful! Highly recommend to anyone and would definitely go back!
Great food, and great vibe. Traditional Greek food with a twist of a modern environment.
Booked for 8.30 on Friday . Arrived at 7 hoping to find a table as we needed to eat earlier . This was no problem . Staff were very helpful . Food was so tasty just what was needed . First visit will certainly return .
