Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

Sharing the joy of Meze and the communal culture that comes with it, Ellenika is your answer to a Greek night out.

Inside it's a party for the senses with its beautiful mosaic pillars and vines that snake up the walls and across the ceiling. You'll find that it's a vacation within itself! So sit back, relax and indulge in their Mediterranean offerings.

Get into the sharing spirit and order a variety of meze dishes. Grilled octopus, zucchini flower fritters and meat balls are just the tip of the iceberg. Go the whole way with their mezethakia board to share and sample a bit of everything. There's also a seafood and meat board to share, as well as some exquisite whole prawns and braised beef cheeks. Warning: you might have to roll home!

With a sharing board to suit every taste and some individual dishes if you want to scoff the lot, this Grecian paradise is worth your time and your taste buds.

We had the most exquisit experience at Elenika this weekend. We were exceedingly well-treated, the staff is very courteous and professional and the food is beautiful. We occupied the best table of the restaurant at an expectacular location. Congratulations to Elenika Tavern's crew and to First Table!

We were welcomed by staff as soon as we stepped in the door. We were seated and presented the menus. We opted to have a few entrees and one main to share between 2 Adults and 1 child. The food was well presented and delicious and there was plenty of it. There was lovely Greek music playing and some of the staff were singing along to it. The waiter was amazing explaining what the desserts were and giving his recommendations. We chose the dessert he recommended and were not disapointed. There are beautiful views overlooking the boats and the inside is beautiful. Would definitely recommend you try Ellenika

Friendly staff, great food. Was a lamb yiros worth $40?
You be the judge. Slow roasted goat was very tasty and a generous serving.
Dad had the lamb yiros which was very nice as did my sons. Lovely environment. Staff were very friendly, like we were old friends, I liked it.
So did my father and my sons.

Perfect beachside experience. The vibe is right, the setting is appropriate and it was a great way to start Sunday dinner. Food tasty and wine list sufficient. It must have been a busy lunch as staff seemed exhausted when we got there. Good effort overall - we will return.

The quantities were not great. Ambience is great and staff super friendly and polite.

Enjoyed the food, and our servers were friendly and attentive. It didn’t wow me, and the atmosphere was a little lacking, even though the Greek club tunes were pumping! It was ok. We had the white bait, zucchini fritters, olives, haloumi for shared mezze and the octopus for main. The dessert with halva ice cream was yum.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Ellenika. Lovely interior and nice place.
Started with yummy cocktails for the 3 of us!
Entree we shared whitebait. Personally was a bit bland and missing seasoning and aoili of some sort however the Haloumi with figs was yum!
Mains were lamb, pork belly and Baramundi which we all enjoyed. Baramundi was cooked perfectly! Dessert was a yummy orange & poppyseed cake, an amazing halva icecream (Omg so good) and a warmed yummy custard filo.
Our waitress Kate (kozi) If I remember correctly was excellent. Very professional and extremely friendly. A lovely lady and good service is hard to find these days when dining out.
Good value having 50% off food bill otherwise quite pricey.
Overall a lovely dining experience.
Thank you.

We were so impressed with the attentiveness and service of our waiter. He was very responsive to our needs, and gave great recommendations of beer and wine to accompany the meal. We shared the fava dip (yellow split peas) and olives, which made for a very tasty starter. For the main, I had the stuffed capsicum, which was perfectly cooked and had the most delightful crispy roast potatoes and a lemony salad to accompany it. The meal was perfectly balanced in flavours and textures, and a real pleasure to eat. My husband had the deconstructed yiros board, which he also reported was delicious. There were so many fabulous dishes on the menu, and I cannot wait to go back to try some more!
