Been here many times. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful we decided upon the meze for starters this was a delight to eat so much choice and wonderful flavours. We skipped the mains and went for a desert but which one?; so we asked if they could do a desert meze to which our waiter said of course we... More

We visited this restaurant as a family of 5 on the recommendation of our hotel. I acknowledge that there are lots of good reviews regarding this restaurant, so maybe they were just having a bad night. We arrived at 8.55 and were shown to our table in the outside part at the back. At 9.20 I asked the waiter if... More

The free appetizers of tapinade, olives and bread were very good. We tried the tzatziki, moussaka and chicken with tomatoes. Excellent and tasty food! Friendly and helpful waiter. Will definitely visit this place again :-)

Nice outside garden. Service was very slow, and then the waiter said that they made a mistake in the kitchen. Took more than 1 hour after ordering to get our meal. Chicken souvlaki was okay. Grilled shrimp was dry and tasteless. Very smokey. As North Americans , the trend has been to eliminate smoking in restaurants, so we are not... More

Great value for the food, lovely atmosphere especially when dark! It's great, the chicken dish with tomato sauce is to die for!

In the middle of Kos Town in the middle of shops but it has quite beautiful garden that you can seat and enjoy dinner. They got planty of vegeterian foods that you can enjoy like every Greek tavern. It may look a little bit pricer but it would't fool you, plates / portions of starters, grill vegatables, fried stuff are... More

My husband and I ate here in late Jume 2014 after stumbling on it in the old town. We both had a main and shared a side and some wine. I had a chicken bardoyniotiko which was stunning- in fact one of the best dishes I have ever tried. Pan fried chicken breast in a beautiful tomato and paprika finish-... More

Given a tip to go here from the local guide we had on a tour, if a local recommends it normally good and value for money.Staff very helpful talking us through the menu and friendly. Sat on outside table with the world going by as it situated on one... More

We found Elia when wandering amongst the winding streets of Kos Town, thought how nice and cosy it looked so popped in for dinner later in the day. The menu was eclectic Greek with some Cypriot and Cretan dishes. My Pork and Halloumi was tasty but far too large a portion; husbands Drunken Chicken dish was excellent apparently. Good local...
