Delicious!

We had dinner here on three consecutive evenings and enjoyed every mouthful! The lamb though must be the highlight, freshly grilled and mouthwateringly delicious, we will definitely be back on our next visit.

A great place to eat! Its mostly frequented by Greeks and their family as its away from the usual tourist areas. Lovely to see an extended Greek family fill a table up as they arrive in stages for a meal. We ate there most nights for a week and ended up making good friends with the owner, his family and...

We ate here our last night of our 3 week vacation in Greece and I must honestly say it was one of the BEST meals we had while traveling throughout Greece. Our family of 5 enjoys eating our meals 'family' style and ordering several appetizers and one or two main dishes and everything we ordered was delicious. The pork kebabs... More

Arrived without a booking to find the place busy with a wedding reception which added to the lovely atmosphere. The food was first rate typical Greek fare. The staff were friendly, helpful with our choice of dishes and let me tell you the food was plentiful ! The wedding party were getting into it with traditional music & dancing, just... More

Our hosts at the nearby B&B suggested this place for nice dinner. She correctly cautioned us that the portions were quite generous. The waiter was extremely helpful and delivered some wonderful selections and wine. We needed that short walk back to the B&B to help settle the meal. Service is quick and friendly. Cash only.

Great selection of traditional REAL Greek food (not just what tourists imagine it to be). Try the Kokoretsi, chicken chops, or Politiko kebabs, e.g.! Large portions, good service, great wine, and open late at night which is very helpful for travelers arriving late at the the St Thomas B&B two doors away.

While staying at the St. Thomas B&B we enjoyed 2 wonderful meals at the Elaionas Taverna. The service was friendly and helpful and the lamb was out of this world - so good we had to go back for a second time. The portions are generous, served promptly, are very delicious and not expensive. This taverna appears to be very... More

On arriving at St Thomas B and B, after a long flight from the US, I didn't really look forward to venturing out on my own to eat that evening, however, I made the effort and was pleasantly surprised. I was instantly made to feel comfortable, even though I was alone. The service was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed some... More

As our B & B/Guest House is almost next door to this wonderful taverna we have been so grateful to them over the past 10 years we have been in operation. It's so great that we can just send our guests off for lunch or dinner and know that they will be well taken care of and have a wonderful... More

Elaionas is a traditional Greek tavern near the El. Venizelos airport of Athens. Its specialities are different kinds of meat dishes, including lamb, pork (chops and steak) and chicken. We have been there quite a few times with family and friends, as it is located near our home and we were always pleased. Prices are relatively low and portions are... More
