“you must go!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I knew that Greek food is tasty and in Elpis they know how to cook and serve it in order you to have a perfect meal!! The taste is authentic, the products are fresh, the service as needed ! There is playground for children and internet available! The perfect place to spend an evening having excellent food and relaxing time! I went there with my children (5 and 2 years old) and i really had nothing to worry about!!!

“Elpis the best restaurant in plaka”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

For good food, friendly service,hot bread, great local wine, and a huge menu all home cooked this is the place to go. The children have a games room and play area if required.
All at a reasonable price. The local dishes were particularly good. Well worth a visit or three

“Unexpected extraordinary tastes at a tranditional Cretan taverna”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

When visiting a Cretan restaurant it is somehow expected what you will be served. Besides the the friendly atmosphere and the fresh meat-vegetables the main difference of ELPIS is their effort to combine traditional recipes with a somehow gourmet way of cooking (and serve). They have certainly achieved this tasteful journey and surely ELPIS may be classified as one of the best restaurants in western Crete. An absolute GO!

“A nice family restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Very good for families with kids as it has a playground too
But in terms of food some dishes were not good. like the stuffed tomatoes!
Bread & Starters were very good
A bit expensive too
