The food is fresh and delicious. Pricing is affordable. While the menu changed from my prior visit, the shish tawouk was still featured and was tasty as ever. I went with a colleague for lunch to celebrate the holidays and the end of the calendar year. My favorite accompaniment is the garlic paste. It is a simple yet spectacular treat.

I went to Elia's Mediterranean Cuisine restaurant for the first time last evening. The décor is "modern" and pleasant. It seems very clean. Dimmed lights. I would say that the wait staff and the portions were adequate. The food was very good; nothing left to take home.

Fortunately, I live local and enjoy Elia's often. The authentic HOMEMADE food is so delicious that I actually crave it! My personal favorites are garlic paste, hoummos, baba ghannouge, vegetarian and meat grape leaf rolls, Greek salad, hashwi, and kafta. Portions are generous. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, and it is extremely clean. Friendly service, too.

Elia's is a hidden gem in the South Bend area. It is easy to get to, but most importantly, the food is fantastic! I am a vegetarian, so it can be challenging sometimes finding a good meal here in South Bend. But Elia's has a large number of options for vegetarians, and they all taste great! If you have never...

While on a cross country trip made the pilgrimage to the surprisingly delectable Elia's. My young wife absolutely raved about the lamb chops and the two ravenous boys devoured their gyro and Mediterranean plates with gusto. Excellent, thoughtful and attentive service made the meal ever more special

I live in Detroit and stopped at Elia's for carry out. Although I often visit South Bend for work, this was my first time visiting Elia's. The food tastes good, but the portions were smaller than I expected. I ordered Shish Tawook which comes with salad. I figured this would not be enough so I also ordered some spinach pie... More

We were driving on 90 and wanted something better than fast food. The reviews were good on Google so we tried it. It is about 10 minutes off the highway. It was very good. We had gyros. All was fresh and nicely prepared. The place was spotless. The waiter was nice. It was a lovely diversion. The speedway next door... More

This is a spot to get some pretty decent Middle Eastern fare though it was rated a little more highly on TripAdvisor than my experience would suggest. When I arrived into South Bend by train from Chicago, this place caught my eye as I looked through TripAdvisor. Middle Eastern food sounded good and it looked as though the reviews were... More
