Elia was half empty while the restaurants next to it were packed - should have seen the writing on the wall. The mixed grills are hugely overpriced, glorified fast food you can find for half the price at Turkish delis. Same taste too. The main...More

Place to go when you are in need of a good Greek feed. Excellent kebab and added extra that they serve tsipouro. Atmospheric and friendly staff - cut above the other establishments in the area

We dined at Elia on a warm Friday night in October. For a starter, we ordered a mixed dip platter with pita bread for €11. It came with a miserly four slices of pita so we soon had to ask the waiter for more. He...More

I`m glad that you bothered to make a trip advisor account just to make a comment to Elia even if it`s inaccurate and false, cause that shows that we matter to you and you will always remember us. But let`s set things straight.First of all...More
