The restaurant looks very nice with an open kitchen. Unfortunately they just offered us a table at the back in some kind of garden. This location is also very nice but did not have the same atmosphere as the front of the restaurant. The food was good for a reasonable price. We were a bit supprised that the waiters were... More

Went twice, supper after arriving and then lunch. A lovely cool setting in old town. Sitting on the busy cobbled street or sitting in the garden both wonderful.staff couldn't be more charming nothing to much trouble. Meal on both occasions excellent. If in kos it's a must.

Ate here tonight 24th September. Arrived early at 7.20 when restaurant was almost empty so were served promptly and efficiently. Lovely bread, olives and olive paste to start with along with saganaki, all very tasty. My hubby had a lamb dish served with a tomato sauce and potatoes which was delicious and I had chicken souvlaki with rice which was... More

We've been travelling to Kos for more than 10 times now and Elia is always on our list of restaurant to MUST visit during our holidays. We love the Mousaka, this may be the best in town, that's perhaps why they often run out of it later on the evening. Furthermore great dishes to share with family, friends or your... More

We had a Meze plate for two which was huge. Some bread and a half carafe of wine and we were full. The meze was good quality and plenty of variety from baked aubergine and feta stuffed pepper to roasted lamb and chicken. At eighteen euros for the plate it was good value and enough to feed two.

Dined here quite early on a Saturday evening as we were due to leave for the airport. The restuarant was quite quiet and were given a table on the street - great for watching the world go by. The olives, tapenade and bread served as an appetiser were delicious! As we were under time pressure we weren't able to linger... More

Enjoyed our meal there so much we went again during our holiday. Sat... More

This is my fiancés and myselfs favourite restaurant in Kos Town, we first went in October 2014 when it was recommended to us. I usually have the meatballs which just melt in your mouth and you can choose between a selection of potatoes and you also have a side of homemade coleslaw. My fiancé usually has pork chops which he... More

We went there because of the good reviews, but in my opinion it was quite average. Food was good, but nothing special. House wine was okay. Not an expensive place :)
