Quite nice without being spectacular. Service was excellent and the food was well presented and quick.

Was looking for something different but not too "Out There". Hadn't been to a Greek restaurant for many years and what I had remembered of it was a lot of yogurt dips and fatty lamb. Went on the web searching for a night out of dinning and came across Hellenic and seemed interesting. Well I was more than pleasantly surprised by the modern take on Greek cuisine. Had the 10 coarse banquet and couldn't fault any of it. Well Done and thank you! Will definitely be back.

Food and service was great. Perhaps slightly overpriced though and not the traditional greek I was anticipating.

A nice relaxing atmosphere. The best dips and pita bread ever. Always have my absolute favourite the grain salad but this time took it home. It was just not quite right but called and let them know and the Manager was very apologetic and offer a free salad next time.
The spanakopita was fantastic. Just home cooked Greek food done well.

It was my husband’s birthday, which I didn’t mention to the staff at all. They must have overheard our conversation and had a birthday cake (I think it was actually donuts). The service was outstanding and the food was good. Well done guys. Keep it up. We are locals and would love to see you thrive and do well!

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The swordfish and tarama were outstanding. The wait staff were friendly, efficient and thoroughly delightful. We particularly loved the Moet at ten dollars a glass. My only criticism was that no refills of bread or dips were offered. But overall highly recommended.

Not overly impressed went in with Hugh expectations and left feeling underwhelmed.
Food not overly creative and lacked flavour. Our side order of cauliflower was deducted from the bill as it was truly underwhelming and was exactly that, cauliflower and not much else not even seasoned. My lamb meat eats lacked flavour and flare. My wife had a chicken souvlaki which was not too bad but really not the standard I was expecting from this type of restaurant. Baklava for dessert was a saving grace but pastry wasn’t as fluffy and crispy as I would have expected. Overall really disappointing glad we went and saw a fabulous show put on by Williamstown musical theatre group which made our night.

Unfortunately the glasses on our table were dirty, the forks were bent/ broken. It was a bad first impression. The food was ok but not as good as other restaurant in area. Wine was really nice.

Our party of 4 each ordered the $55 per head masa menu.
That was entree, mains and dessert sorted!
Our lovely and knowledgeable waitress took very good care of us, taking care of any dietary requirements thrown her way.
Hot tip for the night was to save some taramasalata to dip your chunky chips into.
Mmmmm yum!
Finished the meal with a couple of martinis.
Delicious!

Starters were excellent, wife’s main as well.
However my fish was over cooked and the bread we ordered never arrived with the starters. We had to ask where it was, it had been forgotten. It then came with the main.
Manger addressed the issues well, but damage done. Fish was disappointing.
Would I return NO

I can't complain about the friendly waitstaff who looked after us or the amazing food but our experience was ruined because no attention or care was spared for my booking. I booked a Mother's Day lunch 2 months in advance just so I could get in early and request a really pleasant table and treat my Mum to a really enjoyable afternoon, however, we were seated right at the door at one of the least desirable tables possible. If it had been a last minute booking, fair enough, but far from it. I think a little more personal attention would go a long way. It certainly would have made our day.

This was our first visit and we were most impressed. The food was amazing and came out quite quickly, the staff were incredibly helpful, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble which was especially helpful given we had our very active 3yr old with us.
I will definitely be back any opportunity I get, and I’m more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

The food is good but the service is incredibly slow. The air-con is also far too cold (this may seem minor but makes for a very uncomfortable setting).
Unfortunately, we will not return.
