Great bar and cocktail selection! Food was delicious, staff very attentive. Just thought the side dishes were not value for money.

Was really disappointed that we ordered the banquet and they didn’t have the lamb or potatoes!!!! That’s the best part of the banquet. I had taken friends there for the first time.

Overpriced, pretentious and average food.
The only enjoyable item on the menu was the zucchini chips!

The treatment we received that day was obviously different from other customers’, and it’s particularly disappointing as I was so looking forward to celebrating my birthday that day at Hellenika. I regret to say that the overall experience was not very nice, but Ryan was friendly and helpful which made things better. If we ever revisit, we hope that we'll have kinder things to say about the Calile hotel and Hellenika.

They were training staff on the night we went which made it difficult because there were a number staff working our table. The crunch came when one staff member asked if we wanted our wine glasses topped up & my glass was filled to the top meaning there was none left for anyone else! I had to pour wine from my glass into my friends glasses. And stop asking how everything is going until the diner actually eats something! The last time l ate there it was much better in terms of food and service.

It was great, as per normal, however on this occasion, the service was, at times, slower and simple gestures such as cleaning the table or removing (used or dirty) glassware and plates was left wanting.
It is not an easy business, I realise that, but with the allure Helenika strives for and the money we leave behind every time (gladly), you cant afford to falter.
Having said that, we'll be back soon

We felt a bit rushed and then had to pay for parking when we left as it was just over 2 hours.

We shared the $90 banquet menu, you
Definitely get value for money, all meals are quiet large and super tasty. Unfortunately we were unable to finish our banquet but the wait staff were more than happy to box it up for us. Hellenika is all class! Gorgeous setting, wait staff were so lovely, it was the perfect place to start our honeymoon.

Lovely oysters, a particularly tasty seafood pasta & an unusual but delicious dessert. All in all a very enjoyable dinner at Hellenica.

Service was excellent, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was lovely. We did have a large table next to us that was incredibly loud so we couldn’t hear each other speak however this is not a reflection on the restaurant just an observation.

Great service, delicious food. However, 2 slices of watermelon at a banquet was kind of not worth it.

We all ordered the "Classic" Banquet. OMG! It was amazing - so much food. We certainly rolled out of there at the end of the night. The best valued banquet I have ever had. We will definitely be back.

They were running around an hour behind for our table but the service to make up for the delay was outstanding. We were made to feel welcome and valued. Food was plentiful and delicious, and the cocktails were perfect. Would book again and again

The food and atmosphere never disappoints at Hellenika, however our experience this time was a little disappointing due to timing of food delivery to the table etc.
I understand there has to be time limits with any table to allow other diners to enjoy a meal, however it was very frustrating to be told by wait staff that we shouldn't open another bottle of wine because we had to leave the table in 20 minutes (and yet dessert had not been served to us, and actually wasn't served for another 10 minutes, which left us 10 minutes to finish our meal and remove ourselves from the restaurant!)
They need to look at the timing of their service as they can't expect guests to gulp down their dessert because, through no fault of their own, they have only been given 10 minutes to finish it!

Everything was great it was a warm night in Brisbane however the fans were up so high and it was quite uncomfortable not because it was cold but they were so intense/ nothing major and very nit picky but they were a bit annoying!!

Eggs, eggs and more eggs. Not much else. Bacon was not nice, thick and fatty. You don’t get much for the price of eggs
