Excellent barbecued food, gorgeous sea food and starters! We have never had a bad meal, the service can be a little slow due to how busy they are, but it's well worth the wait. Highly recommended

Best for grilled food with its grill area in plain site from the seating. The family includes ex-divers so catch a lot of their own seafood. Prices are the norm for the town and service is really friendly. Nothing bad to report in any way.

We visited Elli's again this holiday. The bread that Papa makes is wonderful and the steak is lovely. The medium sweet red wine is like pop and goes down a treat. We enjoy our visits to Elli's and look forward to seeing the family again...More

Unfortunately this was not as good as in previous years. Lamb chops were small and over cooked. Chips were poor and there were no vegetables.

We went to Elli Taverna last night. My starter was supposed to be feta saganaki but it was a bit wishy washy. All our starters were far to big. My main course was much better- the pork souvlaki was perfectly cooked and my chips were...More

Although the main courses were nice enough, they both came with cold chips. Some of the food was cooked on the barbeque next to the taverna.

Located on the road across from Billy’s Rentals that goes down to the beach, Elli’s Taverna is well marked with signs that announce it’s family owned, the food is homemade, and the prices are good. It’s all true! The prices are the lowest we saw in Anaxos, and the quality and quantity of the food are quite good. Main dishes cost about 5 Euros. We had saganaki, salad, mousaka, and rotisserie chicken. All was delicious.
