Hellenic Republic Brighton
Absolutely great food! Could not recommend the Baklava dessert anymore
Beautiful afternoon delicious food and amazing service. So much to eat we had to take away. Really enjoyed it all
Excellent local Restaraunt friendly staff good service and plenty of gluten free options on the menu Staff very helpful with the choices.
We had dinner for 8 people to celebrate our twin daughters 20th birthday. It was Friday 6:15pm and the restaurant was full. The staff were very attentive and our server, I wish we had her name, was outstanding. The food was fantastic, arrived quickly and everyone was happy. I can’t recommend this place, it’s staff, culture AND food enough, outstanding.
I think I ordered for the table too many pastry/bread like foods. Everyone loved it however.
Definitely recommend Brighton Hellenic Republic to friends and family. The service was first rate and advice on portions of serves per person was spot on. Love lunchtime at Hellenic Republic, thank you very much
Delicious food and amazing service! Whenever our drink was empty we were offered another straight away!
Excellent service amazing food a bit noisy but overall thoroughly enjoyed our visit
It’s always a mystery why it’s hard to get a table?- half empty the whole time we were there. The food was great- delicious lamb, always have the zucchini chips and a special of chargrilled octopus was also very good. Service is efficient, indifferent attitude this visit. Don’t need the loud Greek music, already noisy.
WE were seated by the door . Everytime the door opened a cold draught hit us . We felt removed from the rest of the diners so there was no ambience . The food was very ordinary . My whiting was so small and supposed to be barbecued - it was't . We sent the chips back because they were cold .
On top of everything , the bill was very expensive for what we ordered .
Simple dishes - albeit with a twist - done really well. Seaside rustic feel inside. Chairs were a little too rustic for my liking, a tad uncomfortable. The timing and attention to service was of a high standard as you would expect. Not cheap, though not expensive either. My favourite dish was the lamb on the bone - to die for!
Friendly warm service. After the food came out, it took prompting for our previously mentioned dietary requirements to be catered for. Food was delicious but we were a little disappointed that there was only one type of meat served as part of the lunch banquet (2 plates of chicken only, no lamb offered at a Greek restaurant!).
Fantastic food service, ambiance everything!! Delicious lamb, salads, dips and excellent kids meals!
Waitress was lovely, food super tasty and wine list was a good selection of local and Greek wines.
The food is always amazing however we noticed this time that the portions of the grain salad and baklava were a lot smaller.
Fantastic Valentines Day dinner, you have to try the lamb 👌🏼
Great food & service. Thoroughly enjoyed. Very relaxed feel yet amazing food & friendly service.
Greek coffee was a let down. Everything else was great
I attended the restaurant 2 nights in a row - Friday night & Saturdsy night. The food was amazing both nights (other than dessert which was a little disappointing Saturday night). Love the restaurant. Service was sooooo much better Friday night, it’s a shame the Saturday crew weren’t as efficient & friendly.
Never disappoints!! The lamb literally falls off the bone. Delicious. Everyone in our group loved the food. Thanks again for a love meal HR Brighton.
A really nice restaurant, quick service ( which fits the 2 hour table turn criterion, although just) and a good range of food. We ordered one of the fixed menu options and really enjoyed it. Restaurant was full on a Saturday night, but this didn't detract from our enjoyment. We will certainly go back soon.
Great service, great food
Service was prompt, person serving us was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.
Food platter was great, enough food for everybody.
The waitress was intrusive, we ordered an extra bottle of wine which was never delivered, the special menus at $35 pp was explained by the waitress that it really was a share plate! Also chicken was a problem so would we accept the lamb shoulder instead which we did and it was delicious. The waitress did not clear our entree of dips plates we had to ask the waiter delivering our meal to clear the plates! As we had enjoyed our visit to this restaurant in December we felt overall this visit was a disappointment.
Good points: Tasty food, served quickly. Nice ambiance. Most staff are friendly, however I found my waiter was arrogant, not warm, welcoming and friendly. There was no 'hello, welcome etc., his opening line was just 'are you ready to order a drink?' I had the sense that we only had the table for two hours and they want you in and out. The dips, pits, saganaki, moussaka and salads are delicious.
Bad points: Staff keep making the point over and over again...you only have the table for two hours...it's not conducive to a relaxing and hospitable restaurant environment. They want you in and out to maximise their dollar...not nice. We ordered the pork and veal sausages and they tasted terrible.
I really like this restaurant. Food is good, service friendly and pleasant nautical ambience. It can be noisy on a busy night but when we went on a Wednesday lunch time it was quiet.
It has really improved the restaurant scene in sometimes tepid (restaurant wise) Brighton...
Hellenic Republic Brighton has vegan nights the first Tuesday of each month and as a vegetarian I am so happy...the dishes are superb and imaginative....even the meat eaters are satisfied..and it is so reasonable. The service is what I expect from a classy restaurant and the noise level not too bad on Tuesday night.
Thank you it was our 24th Wedding anniversary and had a ball
Have eaten at HR Brighton a number of times and always enjoy the food & wines, friendly staff who take the time to explain the menu. Well Done George!
Unfortunately the noise level was so loud that my friends could not hold a conversation at our table so we left. I was disappointed because I was so looking forward to sampling the dishes available. The waitperson seated us promptly which indicated to us that the service would be great. It is a cavernous space and noise reverberates. The loud thumping music and the clients speaking loudly across the table to each other resulted in more of a cacophony than a great ambience.
Loved Hellenic Republic. Fantastic food and great service. Really simple, fresh greek food! The only one thing I would say, is the tables for 2 are waaayyy too small. You feel so cramped and as everything is shared, we hardly fit the food on the table with our drinks, very cramped. But the food and service made up for it! If you could get a few bigger tables for the 2 tables, that would be amazing.
Need to replace your chairs, not at all comfortable.
Apart from that it was a great meal, wonderful service throughly enjoyable
I have been here many many times and Hellenic Brighton never disappoints.
The food was brilliant and the service too
Extremely noisy, couldn't near the person across the table from me.
We had a 8.15pm booking, so I assume there was no other booking for our table that evening yet felt we were being rushed out.
Slow down and let people enjoy the experience.
Serves are small so you order a few things to share around - they could go up a size.
Its pricey but in the end it's worth it because we left with full tummies and a smile.
Our waitress was also AMAZING! and had a great knowledge of everything and serving sizes plenty of options for everyone, we have been with veggo and meat eaters... Would definitely go again
Really good food. Great service. Wine list is limited and needs upgrading.
Amazing food and outstanding service but the portions were quite small.
we enjoyed our meal , definitely will go back! we tried the cheaper set menu and found everything terrific ,next time we will mix and match with a la carte to try some other items.
This place never fails to impress! Cant' wait to go again!
Waiter was good, knew the menu and could make some good suggestions. Booking process was good, but the restaurant ignored the special dietary requirements. Food was delicious, but a bit expensive
