Have been to the main restaurant at Elia's in previous years, and although the food was always excellent, we found it slightly too formal for us. This year they are doing a Barbecue evening on Tuesdays with live Greek music and dancing for 19 euros per person, so we decided to give it a try. Glad we did. Format is... More

It started a little slowly as we thought they were a little too impressed with their own importance - but actually it is just a real passion for the food and the history. The taster menu was interesting, tasty and varied - and the restaurant is a delight of pink and white.

The Degustation menu with wine pairing was excellent value for money. Each dish was well balanced and delicious with wonderful wine to accompany each course. Service was exceptional and the decor very pretty. The restaurant also provided transfer from Troulos. Looking forward to dining there once again this year.

Went here for a meal because of earlier reviews. We didn't realise it was a gourmet restaurant but we decided to try the special menu. The dishes were tiny but very good, each one accompanied with wine white, rose, red then sparkling. We weren't quite sure what were in some of the dishes due to the language difference but tried...

I can't say enough about this restaurant, and we have told a lot of friends about it. I suppose like many of you likely to read this, we hunt around for tips on Trip Advisor, so if you're reading this and you're heading to Skiathos, please take this advice. You MUST dine here 100%. It is expensive and a little... More

We had an unpleasant and humiliating experience at this restaurant. We saw a poster at this restaurant with BBQ night and asked the owner's wife who was at reception if it is a Greek night with Greek music and Greek dancing. She assured us that yes, it certainly is a Greek evening with barbeque grill on the terrace outside, with... More

We were given a wonderful dish to begin each meal and also home made bread rolls and olives in a jar with smoke in the jar! Fantastic! We tried the duck dish, salmon en croute, gyros noodle dish and the beef fillet -... More

Nothing to complain about this restaurant if we refer to service, style, attention to the customer , dish presentation and courtesy. All was above the average indeed, and for that they have our appreciation, but at the end, the food did not ''wow'' us as expected. The taste of all we got was absolutely usual, the only excitement we got... More
