Great place for fine food and wine

Elia is a lovely restaurant located in the old town of Kos. For dinner we have ordered seabream cooked in the oven, fried squids, shrimps, greek salad and various appetizers which were all fresh and delicious. You can select any wine that suits your expectations from the rich wine list. Also the... read more

This restaurant is located in the old town. It has a lovely seating area in the garden. The food is great. The Greek salad was so fresh and the souvlakis were delicious. The service was also good, very friendly. Would recommend.

We can highly recommend this place! We got the tip from a local and had to search a bit but you can find it across from Kantouni (this place advertises on all maps) in the little shopping streets where no cars are allowed in Kos town. We asked the owner to surpise us which he did with all kind of... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant from our travel agency representatives and decided to give it a try! We must have chosen a very busy night for the staff because they were obviously aggravated. We manage to get a table within 5 minutes, which was a lot less time than the parties arriving after us had to wait.... More

This was our second visit to Elia after three years and our experience is more than perfect. The owner Sotiris was really kind and gentle. The service staff was also very nice and fast. We really loved aubergin saganaki, cretan salad and lamb/chicken souvlaki. The price was reasonable for such portions and taste. We will definitely go back, but we... More

Great menu - lots of different sorts of dishes that are not on normal taverna menus. We had Elia Punfull (amazing taste), Lakhmatoum (wonderful) as well as Cretan salad and fava bean dip. A wonderful meal with lovely friendly service. There is a very pretty garden/terrace at the back but we chose to sit in the street side so we... More

First of all, the location is really nice. We picked a table in the garden. You really forget you are in the centre of Kos. It's quiet and you only hear the crickets singing in the trees across the street. The traditional music is playing very sofly, meaning you have to pay attention if you want to hear it. And... More

Confortable place. Warm welcome from the personnel. Traditional greek food cooked properly, delivered quickly, simple and reliable. We tried lamb, tzatziki, vegetables with vinegar, country sausages and other traditionals. All good, all tidy, all tasty. We visited a few times !! Thanks Elia, we love good greek recipes.

The service here was some of the best I had in Greece. The waiter was friendly, quick, and helpful. the food was delicious. I had cuttlefish, which was great. The patio-garden area in the back was beautiful and shaded. It was worth fighting past all the souvenir shops!

We went there for a late meal, it was already after 10pm once we got there, the staff was super nice and the food was great! The menu is filled with authentic Greek meals. We ordered the cuttlefish as the main dish and it was delicious! The zucchini balls were ok, but a bit too greasy, and i would not... More
