Great restaurant with traditional Greek dancing. Clearly very popular as it was packed. I recommend the baked feta to start and the seafood risotto for main. Loved it!!

You must ring Elpis Restaurant and ask for Nikos or his Wife for more information to when Greek nights are held. If you are still on holiday there, You can always pass by Elpis and ask.
