Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we are so happy they did. The food was wonderful from the Bruschetta, Ciziki and Jaganaki appetizers to the Shrimp, Moussaka, Octopus and Mussels entrees. The wait staff was amazing. They did more than simply take your order and check back periodically. They spent time talking with you and took many photos of our... More

Everything was incredible from the view, staff, location and most importantly the food. Would definitely recommend the octopus starter (best we had on the island) and the sea bream. Both were done very simply and to perfection. Definitely recommend.

Amazing everything from kind staff, delightful chef, amazing delicious food and great location/view/atmosphere. Worth finding, but on the edge of touristy area so easy to miss unless you're looking for it. Very cute restaurant with multiple terrace levels. Very quite in October so service really attentive. Chef even came out to say hi and was so kind to give delicious... More

A chaotic but very relaxing restaurant. We had a great time interacting with other guests, an atmosphere created by the hyped up young waiter (Manuel) and the quirky owner (Mr Faulty). Oh and the food was very good, let Mr Faulty guide you on selections and if you play along you'll get free carafes of wine. The waiter was flirting... More

Ellis is a real throwback – great food, cheap, chaotic service. We visited it on a number of occasions during our fortnight quite simply because we thought the food was so good. I wasn’t sure we would return after our first visit but my wife persuaded me and we ended up going five or six times. In the end even... More

Husband's stuffed burger was grilled and very good; my stuffed calamari was pretty good although somewhat rubbery in parts. House wine was awful! Service was prompt and friendly. They seemed to tolerate the cats who hung out by the restaurant which is a big plus for me...

Thank Lauren S
