“The best traditional Greek restaurant on Ios island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2008

The Elpis Bar and Restaurant, also known as The Twins, is located on the far right of Mylopotas Bay, just before the Ios Palace Hotel.The Elpis Restaurant, or The Twins.is above a mini market,to the right of the mini market are a few steps, then you will see the Restaurant on your left. The menu at the Elpis is traditional Greek, and I recommend just go for what you fancy and you will not be dissapointed.The staff are great, they always greet you with a smile and have a chat with you as they see you to a table.It is a family run buisness, and has been going for generations, so they really know how to look after you.Takis, who is one of the younger sons made me feel so welcome when i was there this year, of course he knew me from the many times that I have visited Ios Island, and of course The Twins or in Greek Elpis Restaurant. See the photo,s. Especially the one with Takis showing off his big.............. water melon. See you all there again next year, my friends in Ios. James Manchester England.
