Selected the restaurant for my “vegetarian” daughters 16th Birthday. We selected the 5 course menu and were positively impressed by the service, composition of the dishes and the overall ambiance. Would go again.

Who would think that old Rijswijk can hide such a jewel?! The exquisite, Greek inspired cuisine is matched by a selection of very good winess and by a cosy and friendly atmosphere. While not in the low budget range, the prices are still affordable and...More

I visited the restaurant with a number of colleagues. The service was friendly. As for the food too much mix of everything. While this can be enjoyable it's fine when it works well. Here the impression was a bit too much of everything drowned in...More

I had dinner with the family at Elea after a recommendation by friends of ours. The staff was quite helpful in finding a more suitable table, I find it annoying sitting next to the entrance. We had 4 dishes, consisting of octopus, ceviche, duck and...More
