You know things are going to go well when your first contact with the restaurant's staff is superb. We were welcomed very well and the service remained not only friendly but remained at a high level.
Food was superb.
Great place to go, particularly if it's a special occasion.

If I can give some advice, tell your waiting staff not to clear plates when others are still eating at the table. I understand you want to turn tables over and get new people in however it makes provides a sense of rush which is unpleasant and question us returning. We were only there for 1.5 hours in total for 3 courses.

We were a group of six ladies who have been to Hellenika previously, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the luncheon.
The staff were excellent and made us feel very relaxed.
Thanks

We ordered 4 different dishes for 4 people. Each order came with roughly 5 minutes after the next one. The first order and the last one had 20 minutes time gap.

The dishes served with abosolitly no designing which wasn't expected for a luxury and expensive restaurant.
The food quality and taste was average to low.
All the staff were so friendly and professional.

We were seated inside beside the window looking over James street. Olivia our waiter was fantastic. Friendly but not intrusive. Fantastic lamb and pasta. And a $12 lamb chop was certainly worth it! Loved the whole experience. Totally worth the price.

Had a great lunch at Hellenika celebrating a friend's birthday. We had booked beside the pool, but we were very quickly moved to the Terrace when the weather declined.
The food was excellent but somewhat expensive. The restaurant surprised us with a complimentary bowl of beautiful honey puffs to share with a birthday candle imbedded.
Lovely touch. Service was excellent.

Dined at Hellenika about a year ago and it was overall a really great experience.
This time very underwhelmed. Placed in a double chair with lounge back for dinner of which I couldn't even move as too heavy and had to be reseated.
Lamb very rare and very fatty so unable to eat most of the dish, pork was just in bland thick coating not flavoursome and didn't dishes didn't come together as requested so by the time 2nd dish arrived, first was cold. Forgot our salad all together so just 2 meat dishes and told wait staff if it was still coming to cancel, as no point.
Service was very good and wine very nice. Booked for a birthday so pretty disappointed as turned into an average night.

The food and service were absolutely impeccable at Hellenika - it was certainly worth the wait. The flavours and presentation were on point. We had the 'From the Sea' banquet and couldn't have fit another mouthful in, and we enjoyed every bite. The cocktails were some of the best we have ever had as well. Highly recommended for a special occasion as the price point isn't something we would want to be spending every week, but definitely worth it on a quality level.

We decided to give this place a whirl after seeing some amazing images on social media and having a love for good Greek food. We were impressed with the place and will definitely return. extremely attentive staff who could not do enough for us. Catered for our little baby and did not make us feel awkward about brining a little one with us.

The food was superb and I would definitely recommend the slow baked lamb and stuffed vine leaves. The saganaki did lack some additional dressing and just arrived as a wedge of fried cheese. In the past I have always seen it complemented with some fig or honey etc.

If you want to go somewhere with a relaxed vibe and beautiful surrounding this is a haven just for you. Next time i want to go in summer so we can have a dip in the pool after.

Paying $18 for a 150ml Pinot Noir to be plonked unceremoniously on the table in a dirty , stained plastic cup by an indifferent waitress with her fingers on the rim not a good start . My wife’s Bloody Mary similarly dumped on the table and spilled. Had to get up to ask for a cloth . Guess you’re not paying for the level of service . Food was quite good.
