Took my mum and her husband for an early Xmas lunch. She loved the food and especially loved meeting George so a happy mum is what counts.
The atmosphere was a little noisy. Service was good but a little slow which was understandable given it is Xmas crazy busy period.
What a great restaurant the food the service the ambiance sensational will be back xx
First time there. Asked about the fish on the special board waiter couldnt give me much information at all and when i asked what would be a nice salad to match or a good side - he said i dont know your taste or what you like. So unhelpful and very unfriendly. The fish was nice but i wont be back due to the poor sevice.
Just so disappointing, ok we had an early table but full of screaming kids.
Head manager was great but the rest were not very knowledgeable on wine / menu
Dips were fine but rib eye steak was basically 60% fat and under seasoned , had to ask for steak knife which we never got, asked for salt and had to ask for our fries which they forgot and then came after the meal !
Sorry but won’t be going back
Its my new favourite resturant lovely when people start to recognise you
My group thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding and unmatched.
The table was reserved for 7 plus space for a pram and when we arrived it had the wrong number of people reserved, it all worked out as the mum with the pram couldn’t make it.
No one had any drinks not even water for half an hour.
I myself approached the bar for more water after being unable to get anyone to find/flag anyone to help me. One of the group approached another tables waiter and asked them to take our food order again after being ignored.
The food did come out quick and fast once ordered but no one poured us water or took another drinks order until we were on dessert.
At the end, ten mins of trying to flag someone to get our bill we had the front of house lady service us and she was very helpful and friendly.
No tip was left though as no one thought the service was up to scratch I am afraid.
Love the food which is different and very tasty great atmosphere and very friendly service
Food was lovely, service excellent. As the eating style is share plate we found choosing the right amount of food a bit of a challenge. We over ordered and left about 1/4 on the table at the end. Next time we go we’ll be more aware.
Food is always great, tasty but it’s really expensive for what it is (tavern food)
Also food service is a bit slow. Not good if you’re in a hurry or have kids with you.
Food ok. Presentation poor. Disappointed with Sunday surcharge. Prices are high enough already.
Buzzing, busy restaurant serving great food at reasonable prices. Service was attentive and helpful...only drawback was the noise level. Large tables drinking a lot and getting louder by the minute
Food was delicious but I felt a little too oily for my liking. Waiter was amazing and the service definitely 5 stars
Our waiter was fantastic, so switched on and very helpful and understanding of our allergies.
This has become one of our top 5 favourite restaurants. Never disappointed. Thank you
We have been there a few times now and we love it. Food was quick and very yummy. You can’t go wrong with the cooked on coals meat. The prawns were the best
Our favourite is the saganaki and it did not disappoint. We’ll be back
Nice food and location.
Our waiter kept interrupting us while we were talking.
We had a wonderful experience all round!! The food was delicious, the service was excellent!! Our waiter was great!! Will definitely be coming back soon!! All of us (party of 8) enjoyed our meals and the ambience!! Great evening out for all of us !! Great options to choose from on the menu and special’s board !!
The main waitresses we had were helpful and friendly! However the final waitress, when paying for our bill, told us we had to work out the difference paying on card versus cash. And a credit card charge?
Overall a great experience!
Lovely food very attentive wait staff. Very expensive rib eye but delish
Love it! Perfect for vegans !
Great special occasion place
Service and management made it special.
Food was delicious and good value.
We finished with an ouzo, highly recommend it.
The service and food was fabulous. A great night out with my family to celebrate my 50th birthday!
We found the food really average on this occasion! Too greasy and not lovely and fresh as we’d experienced previously.....
Service was fantastic and the vegan meal was amazing. Will definitely return!
Celebrating A 50th dinner! Food was amazing, and the service was fantastic! Can’t wait to come back!
The food is exceptional and Terry and the staff are very hospitable and friendly. It is our favourite restaraunt and we enjoy introducing our friends to the great food and service on offer at Hellenic Republic.
When you go to a restaurant that is beyond the average price, you expect that all aspects of your experience are catered for. While the food was delicious, that was as far as it went. We came for my dad's birthday and for the Tuesday night vegan menu, which I wrote in my booking. When we arrived at 7pm they told us that the vegan menu was sold out, when we said that we have 2 vegans here especially for the night they finally let us have the vegan menu (which was meant to be sold out??) after 15 mins of kerfuffle and talking to the manager. The waiter made no effort to explain the menu or any general conversation. He forgot to put through our drinks and we had to wait about 45 mins between the enter and main courses. The restaurant was way too loud and the music in the bathroom was bizarre, just someone repeating various words in english and then their greek translation.
Overall, it was a disappointing experience for my father's birthday.
Family dinner - kids never want to eat any other food ever again! Love it :)
First time visiting after wanting to go for ages and wasn’t disappointed. Food was amazing and service was really great and friendly. Will be going back shortly
We enjoyed a lovely dinner with friends, the service and the food was great. We would definately come back.
this was my second experience at Hellenic Republic and i would recommend lunch and or dinner to any of my friends, food and service excellent.
Fabulous food. Great service. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed a lovely ladies lunch in a booth by the window. Beautiful food & fabulous service. Highly recommend.
Love this place. Our French waiter was just delightful.
Food is always good but 4 prawns in a prawn dish was a bit light on!
Also noise level when it’s full House makes it hard to have a conversation.
Will be back.
Great experience, but please bring back the cauliflower
Another great restaurant for Brighton -food and service great - staff are very professional and caring ( not pushy)
Great wine list although a bit over price but good selection - great for couples and large groups - loved it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Though we booked for 7, 2 guests were late so they made us move our table. So busy were they splitting the tables that they didn’t bother to take drink orders. They then had to move the table back when one of the guests arrived. One of the hosts was patient with our vegan requirements of one guest, but it felt as though turning the table was their biggest concern not our enjoyment level. Food was good but not as good as my first visit.
The menu was a little limited but the servings generous. The food was excellent. The attention of the staff was also very good.
Being located on Church Street Brighton, the restaurant is easily accessible and there is parking available.
The aesthetics of the restaurant are quirky, but really pleasant, with a nice open feel with the additional arched windows up along the side lane.
The kitchen is nicely visible and seeing the activity is a lovely distraction.
Reception and waiting staff were very good and knowledgeable.
Good drinks and wine list.
Menu is nice and simple, with fantastic share-plates for a relaxed family / friends vibe. Order a range of dishes and everyone can get stuck-in, share and comment on the tastes!
Desserts were great too - no complaints.
We visit often and invite friends - this is a great spot.
If Hellenic could have a restaurant on the beach - that would be great too.
