“Wow - this was great”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

Open Tuesday to Sunday. And it's a good idea to make a reservation. 
Very cosy interior with wood flooring, high ceilings and bare brick walls. Candles and dimmed lights sets a very relaxed atmosphere in Eleon. 
There is also outdoor seatings in the backyard/garden behind the building.
The menu is very Greek, but not what you find in most Greek restaurants. 
So - no Dolmades, no Souvlaki, no Greek salad etc.
The daily menu contains a handful of main courses (always min 2 vegetarian). But the standard menu is focused on small dishes you can pick and chose between (like tapas).
There's also vegetarian choices among these. 
The menu I selected was:
Hänchenbrust with mushrooms in Mavrodaphne-nelkensauce (nelken=cloves)
Spicy bauern-sausage
Chtipiti - sheeps-cheese with paprika, chilies, lemon-juice and olive oil.
Mecedes-variation: feta, tzatziki, chickpea-dip, sausage slices, a kind of potato patty-cakes and roughly cut vegetables.
Good fresh bread, heated.
With the bread on the side, this was more than I could eat.
I like to try new things and I was a bit wary on the clove-sauce, but it was truly good.
The combination of the dishes was fantastic. That should really be tried, instead of going for just one main-course. 
Service in Eleon is really good - friendly, attentive, smiling.
This is really a place to go to just sit, relax and enjoy the great food, in the company of good friends. (They also do take-away.)
Obs: only EC-cards or cash, no credit-cards.
