Not having had Greek food in ages, I decided to drag the wife, who is Thai and resists all foreign cuisines (except KFC) along to El Greco for lunch. She had chicken satay which she found tasty enough. I pigged out on imam bayaldi, a plate of tzatziki and a large horiatiki salad. The imam seemed to based on courgettes, rather than the usual aubergine, but it was none the less delicious. The pita and tzatziki counteracted the imam's inherent greasiness effectively. The horiatiki was wonderfully evocative of days spent on the Greek seafront decades ago. The bill came to 610 baht. This was quite a lot by Thai standards, especially since we drank water. But it was money well spent. The memories were successfully reawakened.

Love Thai and chicken and rice and...once in a while my carnivore instinct kicks in and I want meat grilled on fire...
Owner very good, chatted with us and was straight up honest..get the meat platter and don't share...priceless.
The meal was all I wanted it to be, good portion, right balance of items...meatballs, satay chicken, pita, dipping sauces, fried potato...satisfaction!
Not expensive for what I had, around 400 baht with a soda.

Go again next full moon...

It's a greek restaurant so expect greek food. We had the lamb, enough for two people. It was good, but not fantastic. The eggplant balls we ordered as an appetizer were also good. The wine is poor, really. The owner was really nice, although very busy trying to attend everyone - this is because their staff is completely lazy, as in many places in thailand people seem to suffer a lot when working. Anyway, it's good food and I recommend it if you like greek.

An excellent restaurant in Koh Lanta. We had lunch there and I was afraid it was going to be too hot (they are located by the side of the road). They import some of the key ingredients (feta, olive oil, olives) from Greece, which justifies the price, and explains the high quality. The bread is excellent, so is the tzatziki. The best restaurant we have been to in Koh Lanta. Well-deserved positive reviews. We will be back.

Good place to visit when you want some change after thai food. Big portions but not excellent taste. What is uncommon in Thailand greek owners really care about cleanliness in their restaurant - our table was cleaned at least twice when we were sitting. A little big high price like for the food they serve.
