The food at Elia was very nice traditional Greek food at a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. The restaurant itself is very nicely done out. The outdoor area is very pretty and is where we ate. Overall, it is a good restaurant that isn't very expensive.

It has a traditional Greek feel and has plenty of outdoor space. They serve a wide range of Greek and other dishes as well as a good... More

The food was delicious, the bread with olive tapenade, the stuffed peppers and the courgette fritters particularly so. As... More
