    The Philhellene in Moonee Ponds has a very authentic & homely feel with good space between tables to allow for individual conversations. The food was absolutely delicious & of great serving size with the starters of scallops & Calamari dishes which were both tasty and we'll presented. For mains we had a souvlaki & cutlets which I'd highly recommend.

    Philhelene is authentic Crete: hospitality, food and entertainment ensure a fantastic night is had by all. We are returning customers. The food is fresh and delicious. The Cretan musicians are world-class and the hosts take special care to make your evening memorable.

    Reliable local gem. Varied menu, with lots of vegetarian choices. The staff know the menu well and helped us choose the right amount. The only downside - it's quite a noisy room.

    My friends, mum and I had a lovely evening at Philhelline tonight. The food never disappoints. My only critism is that we were charged corkage for two bottles of wine at $10 each and we only drank 1.

    As usual, Philhellene did not disappoint. We took a group of friends & they were very impressed indeed! Suzie & John's welcome, filoxenia & generosity hasn't changed. Thank you for a relaxed, memorable Sunday lunch.

    We were rushed all night, they tried to clear our plates while we were still eating off them. Been a number of times before, but won't be going again.

    Excellent food and service , love going there. Only small issue I have is we were seated in the over flow room ( as I call it ) , where the atmosphere is not as nice as the main room . But apart from that it was great as usual.

    This is a delight, a perfect neighbourhood restaurant. Not glitzy but good home grown produce made into hearty and heartwarming dishes. Always buzzing, always good. Recommend the broad beans and artichokes.
