Philhellene opened its doors in November 2008 aiming to provide a rich experience around Greek food, culture, music and history. We are now one of four Greek restaurants in Melbourne to appear continuously in the 2009–2015 editions of the Age Good Food Guide.
Our cuisine is provincial Greek with a strong Cretan influence.
At Philhellene we present an authentic style of food and drink using high-quality produce and applying traditional methods derived from our own mothers’ cooking. This makes for a memorable and even emotional occasion!
Owners John and Susie Rerakis are several-time winners of ‘best Greek restaurant’ in the Age Good Food Guide, and have featured in Vogue Entertaining and other prominent foodie media.
Their mothers prepare, stuff, mix and bake in the kitchen every day, spreading their love and tales of their country in the array of dishes that are served to you. Susie and John’s 30-plus years of cooking and hospitality combine to create an exceptional dining experience.
Philhellene is the closest you will come in Melbourne to eating in a traditional Greek home.
