For a traditional Greek meal, with an influence from Crete, you cannot go past the long established Philhellene. Our group had a wonderful selection of entrees including calamari, bbq prawns, dolmades followed by roast kid goat, sword fish and mousaka. The Greek deserts were delicious particularly the halva ice cream and poached quince.
Philhellene also has a good wine list including Greek wines, beers and spirits.
Highly recommended.

Service & Food very good. However the delay in the main was unbelievably lengthy like at least an hour. Quantity of food seem to acomodate our party ok not overly but enough.

Dining at Philhellene is always a wonderful experience. We have dined here once or twice per year during the past 5 years and the service and food is always consistently flavoursome, value for money and original. From the moment you enter the restaurant you receive a warm welcoming greeting with a smile from the staff and/or owners. The menu is seasonal and sure to please all tastes - from vegan to vegetarian, seafood and meat lovers too! On some occasions you also experience the lovely sounds of cretan musicians! A must for anyone wanting to experience a truly wonderful dining experience!

Long weekend and needed a kid friendly place to catch up with friends for Sunday dinner - enter Philhellene. We knew we had hit on a good thing when we walked in and found the place jam packed, thankfully we had reservations or wouldn't have been able to squeeze us in .

Where to start - we were all ravenous and so decided that the $35 banquet would do the trick for two while the others ordered the grilled calamari and the lamb. The little one ordered her current staple of calamari and that was the start of what was a tummy-popping evening. Each dish was wonderfully cooked -portion sizes were huge and fresh. By the time we got to desert, even the better half had conceded we had got our moneys worth and we had left overs to prove it.

The service was good - attentive wait people who were quick to replenish drinks and provide information on each dish. We couldn't fault a thing and will definitely be back for some hearty meals in a warm atmosphere.

In addition to the usual fried cheese and gyros, Philhellene also offer other regional dishes that are not as well known but equally good. The range of dishes is almost overwhelming and difficult to choose from but the owner is always ready to make suggestions.
It's a great night out catching up with friends while the food just keeps coming.
