Romantic little restaurant, we like to return with pleasure; excellent greek menus, tsatziki, fresh grilled calamars and a lot of other choice; friendly service; little terrace in the charming old town of Kos.

We had a great time eating twice during our 13 days holiday in Kos. Very good Greek food and amazing waiters who know the Greek kitchen very well and advise very clear. Really a must to go during your Kos vacation.

Definitely head into the old town and seek out Elia. Small frontage and interior restaurant but head through to the garden style restaurant which is buzzing with atmosphere. The food is terrific. The smoked saganaki with olive chutney is a lovely starter. The lamb shank...More
