Amazing service, lovely and friendly staff. Food was delicious, especially the zucchini chips. Portions were good size and food was presented beautifully. Amazing location, we sat poolside and had a gorgeous view. Ambience was great, we had a lovely lunch.

Staff need greater training. For cost of food, service sloppy. We were required to adhere to covid policy on arrival, yet staff grabbing glasses by the rim to move them, stacked plates on the table and reached across parties.

Disappointed that the food was sub-par compared to the Gold Coast Hellenika. The close to white taramasalata barely tasted of cod's roe, if at all, and served with commercial pita instead of fresh bread chunks. The big serving of zucchini chips felt like it was intended to be a filler. Our flounder was pretty ordinary and a little overcooked. The lamb, especially after all the zucchini chips had filled us, had been leached of flavour and texture from its long cooking. Though tender, the meat itself was strangely dry and tasteless. Wished we hadn't ordered a banquet for all these reasons. They've regrettably removed pork belly altogether, and opted for easy cooking options like flash frying and oven baking so everything can be whipped up and served in a flash. We had no time to savour anything if we wanted to, as the production line just kept churning it all out. No fine dining here - just fast food and extremely loud noise from poor acoustics. Not worth the money, as not deserving of high prices.

Delicious food. Very friendly and helpful waitress who served us and explained the menu well. But very disappointed where we were seated. I made the booking weeks prior to the date of the dinner. Had requested a table with a pool view because it’s a special day - my birthday! There were a couple of empty tables near the pool that were empty and we were told they were booked. One table only just been occupied as soon as we left. They were empty for two hours, where we could have had sat there and enjoyed a view rather than being shoved next to the bar.

Luna gave excellent service, she was helpful with the menu, refilled our waters and was genuine. The food was tasty, loved the fritters. The ambience was lovely, there could have been more music in the background as it wasn’t busy on a Tuesday so it felt a little weird if you were to talk too loud.

Hellenika is the best restaurant in Brisbane. Hands down. Nothing compares. We treat ourselves at least once every 3 months. It is worth the save and then the indulge. We love it.

The whole experience was 5 star. The staff were professional, friendly and prompt. We had a seat by the pool which was lovely. The coffee was great. We were also impressed by the quality and generous size of the breakfast meals we ordered. So incredibly tasty. We will be back and definitely recommend the restaurant to friends.

We ordered the Mahi Mahi with high expectations but it required a sharp knife to cut through the flesh - extremely overcooked and sadly you could tell by looking at it as the edges were all curled up and it didn't present well. At $40 it was very disappointing

Meals were great and very generous. We ended up taking some food home in a takeaway containers. The food itself was great, flavoured well. Favourite was the fried zucchini as an entree. The grilled red peppers came out a bit cold, overall everything was great including the service.

We had a lovely seat outside close to the pool. Service was great, ambience was lovely. We expected it to be pricey but it was a little ridiculous for breakfast, the big breakfast at $36 add any sides for example bacon to your meal for an extra $12!
the plastic water glasses were very old and discoloured and my tea was served in a very grubby pink tea pot. Please have someone clean crockery once in a while! very off putting. I wouldn't return to this venue as I just don't think the prices match the quality of breakfast, but would recommend to anyone wanting to visit for the vibe.
