Images of Greek cooking staples - a chook, a goat and a lamb - adorn the walls of buzzy Hellenika. They've given their all in the kitchen, where classic dishes are skilfully reproduced rather than reinvented, made with the freshest produce and happily matched with a wine list weighted to Southern Europe. A white roe taramasalata, creamy in colour and texture, enlivens the tastebuds in readiness for the tender South Australian octopus, pressed with paprika before it's char-grilled with olive oil and oregano, or some sheftalia, pork and lamb meatballs wrapped in crépinette. As well as the signature slow-baked Junee lamb shoulder, main courses feature a light, spinach-packed spanakopita and grilled swordfish with spicy lentils. Sweets fly the Greek flag, too, led by caramelised figs with manouri cheese and a sweet walnut cake with halva ice-cream. Knowledgeable, welcoming staff seal the deal.
