Beautiful ambience and design loved the feel on arrival ! Many different seating areas to choose from whether inside or out by the pool
Plenty of friendly helpful staff!
An abundance of staff in fact
Food was very tasty & fresh
Good menu and banquet filling and of variety that gave plenty of taste sensations
Wine was very expensive by the bottle I was shocked
It was a Friday lunch get together which was delightful and ticked all the boxes
My only dislike was the wait staff uniform they looked cheap and looked like a dentist uniform not very appealing also think staff need a name badge of some sort but that’s just my personal opinion
Otherwise a wonderful dining experience

The location is great and the interiors are lovely however the food is overpriced and a little underwhelming. We also didn’t receive our drinks until our main dish arrived which I considered pretty poor since it was a reasonably quiet lunch service.

I wasn't overly impressed by the food or the atmosphere in the restaurant, particularly for the price point. Would recommend sitting by the pool for the poolside eats instead. Our server was lovely and very attentive.

Overrated. Bug linguine didn’t have much bug in it and the lamb shank was quite small for 600 grams. Might come back

Lovely long lunch...however, after we had our meals delivered, we needed to continually ask for service i.e. drinks, water, dessert. We moved to a table near the pool and were constantly flagging down waitstaff; and it mostly felt like we were an inconvenience. There was not a dedicated waitperson for out table. Our water was refreshed regularly; however, it didn't feel coordinated. A little disappointing to an otherwise amazing experience.

Great ambience, food is amazing, fresh and high quality. Everything is truly made with love. Took a little while between each dish, to be expected when everything is made to order. But it is worth the wait. Reasonably priced... Definitely recommend.

I have been there a couple of times, ate outside for dinner, seemed to be turning into a pub atmosphere, not sure if this is what management are going for on a Sunday night. Would like it to be a little quieter especially with people drinking and getting intoxicated. Food is awesome.

Beautiful setting, not great value for money considering other similar options that are around at the moment. Didn't appreciate being told we had only 10mins left for our booking after paying over $400 for dinner - the place wasn’t exactly packed either.

We had the Marouli, Kalamari and Eggplant Moussaka which were all delicious, well presented and prepared. The service was attentive and friendly. Even though it was a seating for two hours we didn't feel rushed. I would recommend it and will be going back

When it comes to greek food Hellenika definitely isn't the best greek restaurant in town but most likely the most expensive. The ambiance is great and it is an experience but if you are after a good greek food then this isn't your restaurant.

Beautiful location, great service, lovely food, but I was expecting it to be better! Also the menu is different to that shown online. The Arni Me Patates Sto Fourno and Baked Snapper were amazing, but the Kalamari was average and they had already run out of the Rabbit by 6.30pm on a Saturday night.

This was hands-down the best spanakopita and moussaka I've had in years, and that's including after us being in Greece for our honeymoon last year! Such beautiful, authentic homestyle greek food, and the service was exceptional, with extremely attentive waiters. Great wine list too.

Food was excellent, particularly the pork and greek salad, amazing dishes. The service was attentive, but a minor downside there was I asked the waitress to explain the dips and they weren't what she was saying, maybe confusion all round, and I didn't like them as much as the dips other Greek restaurants serve. But I'd definitely go again, the ambience poolside and the outdoor setting is very well done, and many other dishes look worth trying. While it was busy, it was still quiet enough to enjoy conversation.

Good size servings considering the price. Large wine list but on the more expensive side. Best to dine with more than 2 people to make the most of the share plate theme. Greek salad was highly recommended by the waitress, however it was a pretty standard greek salad and with the price tag, perhaps not worth it. Signature lamb dish was delicious.

Pork belly was far too salty. Cheese needed honey and herbs. The Greek sausages were bland and needed more Greek herbs and a fattier meat. The service was friendly. We live half way between Hellenica and Grecca at HSW - GRECCA WINS.
