Excellent food at good value

We ate at Elpis on two occasions and had the special of the day on both occasions. The food was very good and traditional, the staff were friendly and the bill was reasonable.

Lovely restaurant by the beach. A simple Greek taverna that serves good food with very friendly service. The meat balls and the dorado are excellent!
