Great authentic Greek food!

My husband and I have eaten here twice and we've loved it both times. We were both in Greece for a week and the food tasted very similar to traditional Greek food. It is a little pricey, but you definitely get good food and generous portion sizes for what you pay for.

My favorite was the grilled Octopus, actually an appetizer, but I asked for additional veggies and it turned into a superb main course. I was told that also the lamb from the oven was tasty. Yesterday they had live music and suddenly half... More

I live outside of Greece the last four years and it was a very pleasant surprise to come accross Elia restaurant in Munich!

Three visits in one week, and the food & service never disappointed. Priced for the neighborhood (not cheap) but first choice of the local options.

Great Restaurant! It doesn't have the typical look from a german Greek Restaurant. The food is awsome - especially the calamares :-).
