Great setting, relaxing, and very good food

Very relaxing place, a bit away from the kind "sollicitation" from waiters in the restaurants downtown, with a very nice setting at the back of the restaurant in a patio. Loved the Chicken Souvlaki very much,as well as baklavas, all very traditional but very well prepared.

ELIA, or OLIVE, I think that it is the same. I went here with friends and we had a sort of a Meze, and let the waiter choose the dishes which were very tasty. The prices are very reasonable taking into account that it is situated in the heart of The Old Town.

We enjoyed our greek meal here very much, they tried to cover most tastes and i would recommend a visit. Set in old town, very scenic, very attentive staff and value for money.

Nice restaurant in the old town. Lovely garden setting. We both enjoyed our meal but wouldnt go over the top raving about it. One touch we both did like was that we were asked when we wanted our next course. This was good as in most restaurants we visited whilst in Kos they cleared your plates then the next course... More

Elia resto is located in the center and has absolutely right Greek cuisine. Also there is a cosy backyard where you can have a table - to be far from the crowded street. But mind - there are 2 cats. Don't feed them otherwise they with jump to your table))) The menu is very local. As welcome you'll have olives... More

We happened up on this place as we wandered through the streets of town. It wasn't on my list of places to try, but I liked the woodcut they had in the lobby, and the sign was inventive, and when the servicer came outside, we had a bonding moment, so we sat down and had a great lunch. decent prices...

We had made the trek from our hotel upon the recommendation of a friend who had spoken very highly of this restaurant. Naturally we had high expectations. I am glad to say these expectations were satisfied and perhaps even surpassed. The food was absolutely delightful. Authenically greek and absolutely full of flavour. As expected a number of the options on... More
