The staff were not friendly, and were not communicating with each other - being asked by different staff re’ same issue
The food is nice but all delivered separately in a random order - for example the salad arrived last after everything else was almost consumed

In future, I would ask for a table that is not so close to the bar/inside restaurant entrance. It was very busy, people walking past and staff moving around you all the time.

The food was good and portions were generous.
The service was prompt and friendly.
A bit pricey for the value and a bit disappointing to drink wine in a plastic cup. Although I understand it’s by the pool, it’s still a bit underwhelming.

First class, from the food to the wine to the ambience and service. Not cheap, but well worth it.

The service was tremendous. Our server had great knowledge of the food and the wine (and such a young man) and took the time to discuss our dishes with us. Loved the food.

We were looking forward to dining at Hellenika for many months after hearing many friends rave about the food and location. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. Both the cocktail and beer we ordered on arrival were not available, and were also told that the were premixed, whih is not something you want to hear when you're paying $20 a drink. We were served by about 6 different people, so we were not sure who to signal if we needed something and the food was cold, tiny portions and fairly flavourless for the price. We are happy to pay for quality but this was subpar compared with other upmarket dining in Brisbane. The location and ambience, however, is unique and the weather was lovely. But I will not be returning to eat here, perhaps only to have a drink under the funky umbrellas.

I was a regular customer from the Gold Coast restaurant so was looking forward to experiencing Brisbane but was let down, they no longer offer the pork belly which was always a favourite and the prices have gone through the roof and the serving size has decreased, the lamb used to serve four of us and now it was barely enough for the two of us, the food was also greasy. Our dinner came to $170 and that was including my husbands one beer, no other alcohol. Fairy pricy night out and left disappointed to be honest. I think I’ll stick to my memories of the Gold Coast version!

The food was beautiful and the advice from the waiter was spot on. The service was very intuitive, going the extra mile like pairing the sides we ordered to specifically come out with dishes that the flavours would suit. Most restaurants wouldn’t think of those little touches and would just bring things out in the order of entree’s first and mains/sides all at once. Couldn’t fault the venue at all.

May have set my expectations too high. Hellenika certainly didn't blow me away.
Food, service were ok. Dining room was certainly too noisy and have had better service where floor staff have been energetic and pre empt customer needs. Felt we our overall experience was far below service and food we have had at other Greek restaurants.
Disappointed.

Our waitress was extremely condescending to us as we looked young. She made us feel uncomfortable in our drink selections and ignored our table in favour of other tables who were ordering more expensive items. I would not return to Hellenika.

Lovely dining experience at Hellenika midweek, starting with a drink poolside and moving to the terrace. We chose the classic banquet and loved the selection. The zucchini chips won our hearts, along with wonderful cheese and slow cooked lamb. Great atmosphere, lively and convivial. The Service was absolutely impeccable, we appreciated the knowledge shown of the food. We will be back!

Friday ladies lunch 🥗 that went for 5hrs. We felt like we were in a resort someone in the world 🌍 & not Brisbane. The food, service, ambience was an amazing experience. We had all been prior which made the food choice much easier. Highly recommended 🙌
