“Εξαιρετικό φαγητό και υπέροχη υπηρεσία”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

I no speaka the Greek but what a great night & meal we had at El Greko's. Met by Jim & then seated promptly we had already decided we were having the Zorba's Feast & it was fantastic.
Great flavours & textures, cooked to perfection & presented wonderfully we had a great time & rolled out the gate 2 hours later a little heavier & very satisfied.
Service from the staff was wonderful & puts quite a few Cairns restaurants to shame, they were very attentive without being in your face & if we weren't leaving Cairns permanently would be back on a regular basis.
Anyone visiting Palm Cove do yourself a favour & visit this place & experience the Feast, you will not be disappointed. Well done Jim & the Team.

“Amazing food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I ate here and were very impressed. We were met by friendly staff who were very tentative and helpful thought our dinning experience. We ordered dips to share followed by entree calamari and sausage. The calamari were so tender you didn't even need to use a knife to cut them. For our mains we had a mixed grill and chicken souvlaki and both were cooked to perfection. We left feeling very happy and satisfied and would say this restaurant is a must when staying in Palm Cove.

“Amazing food, friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Delicious Greek food! Enjoyed the kebabs and dips were amazing. Wish I could have tried more but wasn't hungry enough! The owner, manager was very friendly, would highly recommend for a low key but great night out while in palm cove.

“A real taste of Greece”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

A real taste of Greece with all the dishes that we would expect to find. We treated ourselves to the special Greek food platter and loved everything - even if we were unable to finish it all. Good value for money

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Maybe if we had ordered lamb, we may be reviewing differently, but the meal was quite dismal. Mixed grill 1 lamb cutlet that was tough, fatty and undercooked though thoroughly charcoaled on outside, one sausage, & chicken skewer, disappointing. Salt and pepper calamari was tender, but for a Greek restaurant maybe expected chargrilled, just like a pub meal. Sorry very disappointing
