The complimentary fish soup was terrible. Pork belly although excellent, came out about 15 mins before the Greek salad so was eaten on its own. Zucchini chips were great but the spanned crab pasta was horrible. Was expecting pasta not rissoto? $26 for a glass of Bollinger unreasonable. Wine knowledge of staff was very good. I thought it was extremely overpriced

Hellenika is a top restaurant to experience. Staff are professional and smiling, and on the ball keeping an eye out for customers requests. It was noisier than expected just due to human conversation but it only meant that for two people that you had to get closer to talk which was fine. About 10-20% more expensive than expected but the food was top notch, well presented and cooked to perfection. SO JUST BOOK and GO!

Whilst the service was good we felt that the value wasn’t there for example the calamari could have Ben more substantial for the amount paid.

All in all it was ok. But not worth the hefty price tag.
I knew the upstairs bar was tapas style but the menu down stairs looked as though it was single meals. The waitress didn’t explain anything to us or welcome us to the restaurant. We ordered meals individually thinking that’s what it was. I’m still unsure now if we were meant to order the meals as share plates.
The meals came out 10-15 min apart so I assume they were designed to be shared. If we knew, we both would have ordered something else. My dish came out first and I didn’t want to eat alone so I waited for my husbands dish to come out. Mine was well cold by the time it did.
The portions were small for the cost.
The wine list comprised mostly of very expensive glasses / bottles so we only ordered 1.
The food tasted good, but I wouldn’t go back in a hurry.

had dinner tonight, 17/4/19, booked for a birthday, 4 adults, everything looked perfect until we ordered our food. just after deciding what to have, the waiter told us half of the seafood on the menu was not available. why wait so long to let us know? mah!
so we changed our mind and finally ordered. one of us ordered the lamb cutlets, rare, and as a joke said, let's hope they won't cook them over medium-rare. they arrived on the table first, over medium. sent them back, specifying that they had to be rare. the waiter said it would take 20 minutes for them to be ready, so we looked at each other puzzled and hoped he had no idea what he was talking about!! we got our main dishes without a side or a garnish ( no one ever told us main dishes were served without a side) baffled, and very disappointed again, we started eating our mains before they went cold. after literally 20 minutes the lamb cutlet arrived. this time they were medium-well to well-done..... I remained speechless! the person who ordered them was furious! asked for the bill and left.

Now, as a Chef I can understand a mistake, i condemn the lack of organization and communication to a customer and to a worker. how can a waiter not know how long it takes for 3 lamb cutlets to reach 53°? how can someone finish their entrees without the bread they asked for? how long it takes to put some bread in a plate/basket? how come, even the first serving of mains came all at different times? how can you mess up twice they same meal even in a worse way? how can you, on top of all this, charge a table $200 for 4 entrees and 3 mains??? there is no added value to an average quality food cost. not only I'm disappointed to have wasted a birthday dinner in such a bad way, and therefore I won't be going back, but i will advise everyone i know against going to hellenika gold coast whether it is relevant to the conversation I'm having or not. i wasted 320 dollars and no one should ever have such a disappointing experience

The waitress was so abrupt and rude to the point I didn’t want to bother ordering the rest of our lunch because she was so snappy. The zucchini fries were awesome however everything was extremely salty and left us feeling quite sick. The restaurant is beautiful however I would never go back or recommend this place due the terrible attitude of the waitress.

First time here and probably the last
Food was very average. Wine vintage didn’t match the menu . Drinks were served with the waiters hands at the top rim of glass
Just thought if advertising as fine dinning these little things make a difference

It was my Birthday- the service upstairs when having pre drinks was great, should have stayed up there!

We were overlooked for wine refills a number of times, sparkling water refilled with tap water and just generally felt ignored, lucky the food was great!

I felt we were being rushed before we even sat down. Was keen to see what upstairs was about first before sitting to eat - but had to push to get there.
Perhaps if you charge top dollar fir great food snd venue. You should let people enjoy it.
Will think twice about returning

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!
