In July I've been in this restaurant, but I've never written this review, so better late than never! Elia is a lovely restaurant situated in the old town, you can sit inside or on the street; the staff is friendly and helpful, the waiter suggested to us the fresh food and typical dishes. For example we ordered fried feta and... More

It's always enjoyable to eat at a place where they're trying to get it right, and Elia does just that. Little things like instead of a basket of slightly stale bread, you get some excellent bread that could make a meal by itself. Definitely worth a visit.

The restaurant looks very nice with an open kitchen. Unfortunately they just offered us a table at the back in some kind of garden. This location is also very nice but did not have the same atmosphere as the front of the restaurant. The food was good for a reasonable price. We were a bit supprised that the waiters were... More

Went twice, supper after arriving and then lunch. A lovely cool setting in old town. Sitting on the busy cobbled street or sitting in the garden both wonderful.staff couldn't be more charming nothing to much trouble. Meal on both occasions excellent. If in kos it's a must.

Ate here tonight 24th September. Arrived early at 7.20 when restaurant was almost empty so were served promptly and efficiently. Lovely bread, olives and olive paste to start with along with saganaki, all very tasty. My hubby had a lamb dish served with a tomato sauce and potatoes which was delicious and I had chicken souvlaki with rice which was... More
