Tried this place out with the family last night. We all love Greek and I think being from Melbourne we have some of the best restaurants to compare with, and El Greco did not disappoint, the Saganaki was possibly the best I've tried, we got 3 main meals to share between 5 so the portions were very generous and everything...

Were referred to this restaurant but strangers on the street - they were spot on. Amazing food, awesome service and great wine, we ordered the banquet for two - eyes were definitely bigger than our bellies.

What a splendid restaurant with so much to offer. From the moment you sit down on the outdoor terrace you are transported magically to a greek island. The warm night air and the smell of splendid greek cuisine while gentle greek music plays in the distance really makes for a scrumtious atmosphere. The first dish you try confirms your choice...

All I can say is yum !!! We had a fabulous meal at El Greko. We started with sharing mezze dips, spanokopita, whitebait, fantastic Olives and saganki cheese. We then had huge souvlaki. There was so much food but just left enough room for Nutella Loukamades and Greek yogurt. Will definitely go back. Lovely ambience and excellent service.

After much searching and eating in Palm Cove, we stumbled upon EL Greko. This food was the best food my family and I ate in Palm Cove. Tasty, delicious, traditional and made with love is the best way to describe the food. A lovely family owned business that is so clearly loved by many. We've already re-booked for tomorrow night....
