Hellenika at The Calile
We did not get to eat at Hellenic because of the social distancing rules imposed by the state government. The memory of (not) eating is more a representation of being a potential customer in that at no time, despite having contact details, did the restaurant pay the curtesy of advising us that they 1. were closing 2. were not opting to serve just take away. For two days prior to our booking I used various media to attempt to ascertain whether our booking would actually carry forward. This lack of customer contact has left me with a decision, despite their reputation for good Greek food, to give this restaurant a miss because it does not appear to have much concern for its customers or would be customers.
Amazing service and food!
We celebrate my daughter’s 14 birthday there and she couldn’t been happier!
Staff were outstanding considering the pressure they were under due to the Coronavirus situation.
So good! Wait staff were great!! Everyone was super attentive and super friendly! Menu was explained to us and recommendations given! SO GOOD! Definitely go!
Great dining experience, food was great, staff were helpful.
Probably more suited for cocktails and nibbles, not so much a food experience.
I had a good time and would come back.
lovely as per usual, however the spanakopita wasn't as good as the last few visits.
We had a really negative experience. Called to request outdoor table / pool cabana and told this was confirmed but when we arrived they said we were seated inside.
Terrible service after placing order. Forgot to bring mains and had a huge wait and never saw the waiters again once they arrived. No water top ups. Difficult to order drinks, no dessert offered. So many waiters just standing around doing nothing. Lovely hotel and space but really poor and disappointing service. Food ok but should be better. Go to Greca.
Firstly, the worst table possible especially after I booked weeks in advance. Staff discussing bills and needing to “get people out”. Secondly, meal was incorrect. One plate was correct, one wasn’t ordered and the other meant to be braised vegetables but ended up with peppers. Was told it would be fixed. Waited a further 15 mins. The calamari $32 for 8 pieces of touch calamari. The waitress was too worried about topping up people’s glasses with water.
Never disappoints, the food, service, wine selection and cocktails are amazing
Fabulous as always. Food was exceptional and the staff are brilliant
Exceptional food and outstanding service!! We had a lovely thoughtful waitress and the brunch was divine.
Fabulous spot for lunch - food & service amazing! Such a great atmosphere!
Must try the beans in Avocado and Lemon dressing.
Beautiful food & wonderful service in a lovely environment.
Fabulous food, really enjoyable experience. Love that the waiters don't pressure you in to tipping!
Amazing food, good atmosphere, slightly over priced.
The service was very friendly and attentive, we were greeted with a smile and offered the option of choosing dining inside or outside. We thought that was a nice touch. The food is delicious and lovingly prepared. We chose to sit outside and the atmosphere was lovely. Certainly a night/dinner to remember. Keep the smiles and good food going! :) we’ll be back!
Was expecting more from Hellenika. Felt like an overpriced casual restaurant, maybe this is what they were going for but was expecting it to be more fine dining, for the price.
Great atmosphere, great food, lovely staff, definitely recommend
5 star experience all round.
Delicious , high quality , fresh food with amazing flavour and menu options.
Attentive staff, who were very helpful and courteous.
Amazing setting, food & wine was outstanding, staff were super friendly and it was so relaxing.
Excellent night out. Very happy with all aspects...
We’re recommended the restaurant by family and friends and it sure didn’t disappoint. Will be definitely recommending it to others based on all we experienced. Will also been returning for another delicious Greek meal.
Outstanding food, lovely staff and really cool venue.
Please improve food preparation times.
For a table of eight we waited excessive, unreasonable amounts of time and to receive no update or apology when the food did eventually make its way out.
If your staying in the hotel its a great place for the convenience. There aremany other places around that offer the same standard breakfast for half the price and a much better chai latte.
Great food and our waitress was awesome
Beautiful food except the spicy sausages were full of gristle. Outstanding and attentive service. Great atmosphere. Highly recommended
The food here was insanely good! Every single thing we ate sang!! The service was impeccable and the ambiance beautiful. Go!
Great Greek food. Not cheap but worth the extra spend
Great place to relax and enjoy a fabulous meal - especially the lamb - with second to none service and ambiance
toast burnt beyond edible level- and hidden on the plate as if I wouldn’t notice? Check your product before you put it out- toast is TOO EASY
On my first visit to Hellenika at the Calile Hotel, I had absentmindedly thought I’d booked for a Saturday when in reality I’d actually booked for the Sunday evening. And despite being fully booked, the hosts were nothing short of understanding and extremely accommodating in dealing with what was quite an embarrassing situation on my part. Impeccable service combined with beautiful food, wine and ambience, I’ll be sure to return and recommend others!
We are from Sydney , and love Hellenika! It’s our second time, and the food , ambience and service is fantastic and highly recommend.
We were served by JB again , and it was memorable and outstanding service .
We recommend Hellenika to anyone we know travelling to Brisbane.
We very much look forward to our next visit, and we will also look forward to dining at steak and oyster as we missed out this time
The main area of the restaurant and around the bar is very noisy so we were happy to be seated in a booth by the pool which allowed us the opportunity to hear what more than the person directly beside you is saying. The wait staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. We did have to wait over 15mins for our table past the reservation time but were given a free bottle of wine as compensation.
Overall a fun, relaxed evening.
Absolutely amazing food, excellent service and fantastic atmosphere. We loved it and can’t wait to go back!!
Great food, good company, great location, great views
It was a fabulous experience and the food was unbelievably fresh and delicious.
Only down side was we were paying with a gift voucher and did not meet the the amount on the voucher. We were told we could not come back and use the remaining amount, but had to forego that outstanding credit.
This was a fantastic experience. We loved our food, the service was exceptional. This is my second visit to Hellenika and I thought it was very good both times. Love the taramasalata dip!
