Wow. Visiting from NZ for a short break and went in last Friday for lunch. Stayed ages, and had (again after a Press Club visit earlier in 2016) some amazing fantastic Greek food. We had the banquet and were not disappointed. The Saganaki with the baby figs was so good had to have another. The oven cooked Lamb shoulder and... More

Food was amazing - full of flavour. I had lunch by myself and while the plates were for sharing, they offered me more variety and smaller portion... that means i got to taste 2 meats, a salad and a starter. Great service. Totally recommend and will definitely go again when back in melbourne.

Food, service, ambience, staff almost unable to be criticised. My wife had 'roast' pumpkin with her meal, unfortunately it was not properly cooked, sit;; tough and crunchy with inedible skin. Maitre d' apologised profusely, we were all given free glasses od very good wine and my wifes meal, although replaced without hesitation, was not charged

Top notch Greek cuisine with a modern twist served by attentive and professional wait staff. We chose the set banquet which was generous. Dessert didn't quite live up to the rest of the menu. Concluding with rice pudding was an anti-climax. The only other flaw with the place is the building is all hard surfaces making it quite noisy. Doesn't... More

We have been to this restaurant several times before and enjoyed it very much each time, so it was a great disappointment to see how much the menu has changed. The service was very good, but even though there were several empty tables it was terribly noisy, and very difficult to carry on a conversation with people sitting opposite. We... More

Our daughter arranged a pre-Christmas lunch at Hellenic Republic in Brunswick just prior to Christmas; so with six others, Carole and I thoroughly enjoyed a splendid lunch. It was a pleasure to dine there, great, airy and comfortable surroundings. There is a very wide ranging menu, which means it is virtually impossible to not find a course to interest everyone...

Visited with a group of friends fir a birthday dinner. The restaurant was busy- especially for a a Sunday night, so was quiet noisy and crowded. I felt tables were placed very close together. The start of the night wasn't great- we were seated and given a drinks menu. There was then a long wait before our drinks order was... More

The restaurant was booked as Wedding Anniversary treat - our party of 7 included two teenagers. It's a really busy place and bookings appeared essential. They have two meal sittings - 6:15 or 8:15. The menu is set up to share and we did - tasting across the extensive menu from starters, grills, salads, sides and desserts. Lamb shoulder was... More

What a wonderful food experience. Easy to get to on a tram ride from the city centre, tram stops right across the street. Make sure to book by phone or online. The only restaurant I have ever been to that "shrinks" portion sizes for the solo traveller and prices accordingly. I had a very lovely glass of red, starter and... More

Hellenic Republic is a traditional Greek taverna with a contemporary twist - perfect for modern Melburnians!Our food philosophy is simple – fantastic, fresh produce to prepare traditional recipes in a clean, contemporary style. At Hellenic, kefalograviera saganaki is served with sweet peppered figs; local wines are served by the half litre and succulent meats are cooked over char coal.We recommend our Trapezi menu as the best way to dine at Hellenic Republic, where our chefs prepare a selection of our finest dishes for guests to share. The restaurant seats 120 guests, or alternatively can accommodate up to 220 standing guests for a stand up cocktail function.
