Hellenika at The Calile
Lunch was delicious and the service was pretty good, however we were asked to leave with little notice as the space we were occupying was required for a private function. We weren’t finished with our drinks and we’re not offered an alternative table despite some being available. The staff did not seem interested once we paid the bill.
Beautiful restaurant and fit out. We had a late booking and although the restaurant was clearing out, we still had to wait a very long time for food (we believe one of our dishes was forgotten) and we had to ask multiple servers for our bill at the end of the evening. The servers were lovely when they came by, but their attention was very minimal, which was disappointing.
Buzzy, friendly and professional service. Wonderful Greek food.
5 friends for Friday lunch. Mixed review. Setting and ambience was great. Food was delicious, and whilst staff were attentive, they were not very friendly and did not add to the experience, the food runner was rude when we asked a question. We had one of the banquet options which was very good although you would need to be hungry. Our primary waiter had to refer us to the manager when we received food we had asked be held while our final party member arrived. To his credit he handled our request quickly and well but the hierarchy seemed a bit much for a simple request.
great food, good service, music hilariously Greek, significantly louder than necessary and overbearing... rather took the relaxed edge off our meal. Ideal if the music were quieter, but it wouldn't stop us returning.
Can’t fault the experience. The food and service was amazing.
Waited 35 mins for a drink. Wasnt really impressed at all with the service for the price you pay. Might go back after they have fine tuned it more. Would reccomend the Gold Coast venue any day over Brisbane.
food IS EXCELLENT but the coffees.... terrible...
they really should have a good barista and one that knows how to make Greek coffee.
Food was excellent
The food was delicious and our waitress was superb, she helped recommend dishes suited for us.
Love the vibe of the place.
Lovely sitting by the pool enjoying great traditional Greek food. Very, very relaxing.
Outstanding attention to detail, great service and best available produce treated well make this a very rewarding if expensive treat
Very disappointing experience. We were guest of the hotel and it really put a dampen on our stay.
Terrible service and a long wait for food.
Wait staff never came to check on us.
When we told them at the end of the meal how unhappy we were the offered to pay for our drinks. One coffee!! Would have had more but no one came back to check on us or take additional orders.
Won’t be going back
We've been to Hellenika for dinner and loved it. Unfortunately, breakfast was not good. The food is extremely basic and it came to us cold - cold bacon and eggs is not very appetising! Given the usual quality of food at Hellenika, we were expecting good things, sadly that was not the case. We won't be having breakfast there again!
We had a fantastic dinner with great service. The food was delicious ( we had the banquet) and were so full before the final lamb came out - which was a slight shame as it was outstanding! Our waiter was kind enough to offer to pack it up for us to take home. Will definitely visit again.(as we live across the road)
The food was not worth the money. Not friendly staff. Rather pay somewhere else
We attended the Restaurant for the second time for a special birthday party.The ambience was perfect under the cabana away from the noise of the restaurant allowing us to catch up with old friends.
The service was exceptional and the food was delightful, very impressed with the Greek wine list which we had to try and not disappointed.
We congratulate the Owners and all the staff showing amazing team work and pride in their job.
We are so glad you have come to Brisbane to show good old Greek hospitality.
Great food and excellent service
Would go there again and recommend to friends
We went to Hellenika with great expectations and good reports. We opted for a mix of small plates and one large plate. Of the small plates, the octopus and zucchini chips were outstanding, the rest just ok. The so called large plate was a very modestly sized crab pasta. Tasty but not great value. We went with a recommended Greek white wine which was superb. We share a couple of desserts which were pretty good. The staff were excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being over the top. All up a very good addition to Brisbane dining albeit a bit pricey for what you get.
Love Helenika Gold Coast
Love Helenka Brisbane 💯%✅✅
Had a fantastic meal poolside at Helkenika. Food was simple but flavoursome. Service was very efficient. There was such a beautiful ambience for our table of six being seated in the cabana tables overlooking the pool. Will definitely be back.
Fabulous! Food and service top shelf! We frequented Ed Hellenika on the Gold Coast most Sunday’s and this new one is even better. Well done!!
Had very special anniversary dinner, cant wait to go back!
Wonderful lunch, generous servings, amazing flavours, great service.
Too expensive for what you get. Food just ok should be better
Beautiful ambience looking over the pool (not too hot outside under the fans). Great food, excellent service.
Great food greatambience and overall good night out
So delighted with our dinner! We went for Darren’s birthday and were placed at a beautiful table next to a window. From our arrival to our departure we were made to feel valued and special. The restaurant at The Callie is divine, and the banquet we chose was amazing. Staff were fabulous, knowledgeable and friendly. Expensive but worth every cent. We will def be back. Xx
Overall very disappointing. Although the service was good, the food was very stoggy and not what I would consider good Greek food - and I have had a lot of good Greek food in my time. The restaurant was very noisy and prices very expensive for what you get. I won’t be going back.
Incredible experience at Hellenika.... great vibe, beautiful setting, friendly and professional staff, delicious food... the overall feeling was “magic”.
Amazing food!! The most authentic version of Greek Tzatziki and Greek cuisine in general that we have tasted in another country apart from Greece. Fantastic service aswell 😍
We had the most enjoyable evening with food being amazing. We chose the signature banquet so we could sample everything. It was very generous in quality and quantity. We sat outside for dinner before moving to pool area for desert (and the table was required for next sitting)
Service was 10/10 and our main person was Jana who was outstanding.
Will definitely return.
Lived up to its expectations & more, thank you 🙌🏻
Was a great lunch but a horrible seat. Last table right in the corner. I sat facing the wall. Horrible ambience being right in the corner. Should maybe rethink seating arrangements and have seats on other side of table so one looks onto restaurant another onto the street. Really put a dampen on the lunch
Being very familiar with Greek food and having heard of the reputation of the Gold Coast restaurant I was keen to try it.
The food was traditional Greek and exceptionally well cooked and presented.
Great service and amazing setting! The interior and pool are beautiful!
A beautiful dining experience. We were coeliac and required gluten free options to share. There were quite a few choices and all delicious. So hard to choose a favourite! Our wait staff attentive but not over the top. Very helpful with GF food options and double checking with chef which was so much appreciated. Not a lot of choice for GF dessert though. However we didn't mind as we had already had a lot of lovely dishes. I would highly recommend to friends and definitely go back. A neighbourhood gem for us.
staff were exceptional and made some good and helpful suggestions - food was well presented and very authentic
I’m a massive fan of Hellinka on the Gold Coast - so I was excited when it opened at The Callie. However, I was very disappointed. They had run out of two dishes I ordered, the service was terrible and the food was average. Not what I have come to expect from such a great establishment. Hopefully they can lift their standard to match that at the Gold Coast.
Absolutely wonderful...it felt like we were in another country...a DEVINE dining experience.
