This was one of the restaurants we went to when wanting quality food, a bit more expensive then other places, but good service and tastefull dishes, the price was expensive at all. We always went for tapas dishes to see what Greece could offer:) A big recommendation from me. Sincerly Carl Antonio Holtlien www.iloveseasonwork.com

This charming place captured me, while I was walking by and I decided to go back for dinner. Nice, friendly atmosphere and staff. I loved the muscles saganaki and the Elia punfull. They are great to go with Ouzo. Highly recommended to solos, couples or small groups. Not really for families with children.

We ate twice hear in one week. Lovely traditional greek food, friendly service, reasonably priced. Can't say anything bad about both of our experiences, ask for recommendations of traditional dishes and local wine. Just go!

We ate at Elia's the first night of our week stay in Kos. It was a gorgeous start to the holiday with beautiful outdoor seating, friendly service and great Greek food. We loved it so much that we came back for our last dinner in Kos! Delish.

Very tasty traditional greek food, cozy terrace, nice service, prices are ok. Came back for another dinner there next day and would definitely go there again! Drunken chicken was the best of dishes we've tried.

This was a very romantic place in the centre of town but its position makes it very quiet, excellent service, good traditional food.
