We visited Kamari in September and after a few days of struggling to find good food we visited Elia. The food was exceptional as were the cocktails, I can definitely recommend the gin basil smash!!! The staff were friendly and very helpful, could not recommend this place enough.

The squid with watermelon was fantastic and they did some wonderful cocktails. We had dinner here and lunch one day (sunloungers are very comfortable but have to pay for them, even if eating in restaurant) The club sandwich at lunch was fantastic too.

Quite simply the best restaurant in Kamari, offering a modern take on traditional Greek cuisine. The local wine selection was truly astounding and the service exceptional. If you find the rest of the restaurants and tavernas along the beach are a bit samey then head over here asap. Best to book beforehand.

Now that Nichteri's has, sadly, closed this is the best restaurant in Kamari. When we came two years ago I put this and Nichteri as my top 2 restaurants. Lovely location, overlooking the beach. Tables nicely spaced and service to die for. All waiters good but special mention MUST go to Demitri who is, quite simply, outstanding at his job.... More

We stayed at Bellonias Villas and ate here 3 out of the 7 nights because the food was that good. It was however the service that really was a cut above the rest. They were able to recommend food and wine while taking into account our likes. The staff remembered what we liked to order and really took the time... More

Perfect restaurant inside the Bellonias Villas hotel, we stayed at this hotel for 14 nights and would have happily eaten here every night, we had lunch here pretty much every day and around 8 nights, every meal was exceptional and the service is second to none

By far and away the best restaurant in Kamari. We dined at a number of the other top rated places and none came close to Elia. The ravioli starter was devine, and both the lamb and beef fillet mains were gorgeous. As others have said the chocolate ball desert was fabulous! Yes it's more expensive than the other tavernas but... More

We were in Kamari for 10 nights and we dined here twice, it would have been more but we only discovered it toward the end of our stay. The food was a good notch or two above the others we tried and the staff were efficient and obviously well trained. A good wine list with helpful advice from the wine... More
