What Our Diners Say About Us

Philhellene, a fantastic restaurant that I have visited on several occasions. Their traditional Greek cuisine is exceptional, and the quality of both food and service is consistently outstanding.

Ryan Lugue

I enjoyed this restaurant. The food is authentic Greek food and the Greek music, paintings and language are everywhere. The ambience was amazing.The food was full of flavour and there was so much to eat. The service was very good and quick. I had all my meals served on time and water refilled as soon as we finished it. I am glad I chose this place for Mother's Day as my mom enjoyed it.

Brendon Henry

Went here last Sunday night without notifying staff, however we were welcomed and accommodated, with a smile (even though the place was jumping!). Absolutely loved the platter for 3, and a cab sav, that was to die for.
