Hellenika at The Calile
Food too salty, took forever to come out. Service was good. Very over priced
This is the second time I have dined at the Brisbane Hellenika and the food was superb. Although they had an issue with their grill on the night it did not effect us as the items we chose did not require grilling. The wait staff are attentive and I will definitely be returning. The King George whiting was absolutely delicious.
Amazing food, Amazing Location, Amazing staff. Would definitely come back.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food service and ambience were all first class. The staff were friendly and attentive which made us feel as diners “valued “. Thanks for a great lunch we will be back.
Have been here twice now and still impressed with the food and service.
Disappointed with the food.
All tasted precooked from days before
Brilliant!! Wonderful food and service!
Amazing, just amazing. Was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
Such a beautiful venue equalled by the magnificent banquet and attentive and refined staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience x
Hellenika sits within the beautifully designed complex of the hotel. The indoor dining area is very dimly lit and the vast use of marble and cement do make the somewhat small space very loud. We had some issues with service (we were seated late for our booking, multiple waiters and some order miscommunication due to the noise) but our overall expirience was good. I would recommend dining during the day as many use this as bar in the evening. The food is great, the service coordination could use some work.
Amazing food, especially the spanakopita! Wait staff were very attentive and the sommelier very helpful. Only downside was having to wait an age for our cocktails in the lobby bar. In fact, they never came! I wouldn’t bother again and instead would just head straight up to the restaurant.
A very impressive decor and fantastic ambiance. The food was authentic Greek but done exceptionally well. Could not fault a thing, looking forward to my next dining experience.
Absolute perfection 🥂 food, service and ambience. We enjoyed it so much we moved outside and stayed another couple of hours for cocktails by the pool.
Great night celebrating daughter's birthday. Everyone enjoyed the food. A little noisy.
Great Food, Fabulous service - will certainly return often :) Thanks
A wonderful , relaxing time with my very special friend was spent today relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Hellenika Restaurant. We were spoilt by a beautiful attentive waitress who looked after our every need . Food was so delicious and we will definitely come back again to enjoy the ambience and of course the food. 👏🤗🎶
Our table of 4 enjoyed one of the 'banquets' which is a complete greek meal from appetizer to dessert. Banquets are meant to be shared among everyone at the table. Everything was delicious. By the time the lamb plate was delivered, we were completely full - but still managed to eat our sweets for dessert. Strongly recommend this restaurant.
Good place for a monday lunch..special occasion fir 15 yr old granddaughter
It’s great food - it’s just very expensive. On food, atmosphere and service alone it’s a wonderful experience
Our evening at Hellenika had all the hallmarks of good Greek Hospitality. A very charming and attentive young Greek woman called Agapi, ( "Love" to you and me is pretty good for name is it not ) who looked after all our needs. We ordered a number of dips to start with, the taramasalata was very tasty and lemony, loved the fava and the spicy feta dip. The Kolokithakia ( deep fried zucchini ) were delectable - crunchy, hot and totally yummy. The octopus was soft and flavoursome. The salad plain and fresh and then we all shared a lamb shoulder with potatoes and green beans. Very Greek, very good and very yummy. As if that wasn't enough we actually had desserts as well. Loved the ouzo lemony sorbet and the halva ice-cream. They are small helpings so you can try most of them without worrying about your waist line. The galatoboureko can be improved a little. It lacked a little of the orange syrup. Overall though this was a lovely dinner. Unpretentious food, generous helpings and excellent service. Drinks were also good and reasonably priced. Would we go again ? In a jiffy. Marina Marangos
Go every few weeks, amazing food, awesome staff and great vibe!
I went to Hellenika with my family for lunch on Sunday. Our expectations were high because we'd read lots of good reviews. It certainly lived up to the hype. The service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. We had a banquet and every dish was exceptionally good. I was also impressed by the ambience - it was fresh, vibrant and buzzing, with an abundance of staff. I liked the open, light space, and the expanse of tables leading out to the pool deck. I look forward to eating here again and would readily recommend it for any occasion with friends or family.
Nice atmosphere but when you're seated pool side you're given some rather average plastic wine glasses to drink the expensive wine you've just selected. Further more to get to and from bathrooms it's a pain to get let back in through the pool gate which needs a pass card.
Food was good quality but service was slow having to flag down waiters. Would go again but wouldn't sit pool side.
Greek cuisine. Elegant fit-out with relaxed retro vibe. Good for drinks or dinner. Great for group dining with banquet menu options. High noise levels due to the open-kitchen situated within a small dining area.
Fantastic venue, lovely food and service was faultless.
Loved it - will definitely be back. Service was attentive, food was delicious. Recommend the banquet - service size is very generous.
We had a really enjoyable lunch. We chose the lite lunch which was excellent value. Fantastic wine list - we enjoyed a Greek white
A couple of improvements: we were moved from our table because there was another booking. We were relocated from inside the restaurant to a bar stool in the full sun - to eat our dessert! (We chose an extra dessert from the menu - the slice of watermelon just didn’t meet expectations for a dessert. It would have been better to exclude the “dessert” from the lite lunch than offer watermelon)
When the bill arrived - we had been billed an extra bottle of wine. It was promptly removed - but highlighted the importance of checking the bill!
I would recommend as I’ve been here before and this was my third experience. However this time I had a friend with me who had never been before and we felt really rushed. The waiter kept hovering around and watching us really closely and the moment we put our cutlery down swooped in and took our plates. We hadn’t even finished our wine and we were handed the bill and told we needed to go because they needed to turn the tables over. Bit rude really and ruined the experience for my friend.
Another fantastic meal at Hellenika, this time a girls lunch.
Food continues to impress. Large portions, fresh, AUTHENTIC Greek food. The lamb shoulder and the cypriot sausage ( not really meatballs) are the standout but really its all good.
Service is very professional and unobtrusive. Reasonable value given the rent they must be paying on one of the most expensive streets in the country. Order the Greek rose too!
We are very lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre in the Valley and its really raised the bar.
A wonderful place for a social lunch. The gentleman Glen was one of best services we received. He was on the ball and extremely helpful with the menu. Thanks you Glen from Caracus Venezuela. 😍
Interesting venue, staff we interacted with very friendly and helpful. Food of lovely quality Greek origins.
Enjoyed but venue a bit noisy and bar very busy which has potential to delay drinks arriving in conjunction with meals.
Awesome food and service - will be back!
The food was amazingly delicious and authentic. I'm looking forward to our next visit and is a perfect restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.
Hellenika is a beautiful restaurant and the food and service is of very high quality. So expect the best. I could not fault the service. However it is overpriced for what it is and the wait staff continue to fill up your water even when you have full glasses and add it to your bill.
I have already recommended to several friends.
We had an absolutely wonderful evening.
Food was plentiful - banquet met everyone's needs and more.
The food was delicious... and arrived speedily with welcomed smiles
The front (roadside) was a wee bit noisy .....we just laughed and chatted louder.
A fabulous night - our Dinner group will be back!!
Saturday night very busy and very noisy, but service food and wine very good
Fabulous food, service and lovely outlook, we loved it.
Fabulous as always! The sommelier was also very acccommadating.
I went with my girlfriends for lunch!.. and everything was perfect!, service and food!!.. is a perfect spot for a get together with the girls and the zucchini chips are a must!
Great was great and so very delicious. Fantastic atmosphere and highly recommended.
