There's a jaunty taverna-style atmosphere at play in this good-looking room with its open kitchen, contemporary artwork on bare brick walls and shaded terrace. This country-style, full-flavoured bounty is best shared, so order the $55 set menu and indulge in the mezze-like procession of dishes. The strategy also provides time to pore over an impressive wine list, laced with intriguing low-intervention Greek varieties. A triangle of golden kefalograviera arrives together with taramasalata, feta and capsicum dip and hunks of warm bread. Tender char-grilled calamari with lemon and parsley is followed by fat pork belly cubes on buttery braised leeks, and King George whiting fillets with aromatic fennel. After fall-apart lamb shoulder, the prospect of watermelon slices, baklava and sticky walnut cake seems like overkill, but, as in the rest of the package, it underlines Hellenika's impeccable hospitality and obliging service.
