We visited Elias' Garden on a snowy day for lunch. We knew nothing about this restaurant, it just appeared in front of us as we were thinking that we would be left cold, hungry and blocked by the heavy snowfall... The environment was cosy and warm, the staff very kind and helpful and the food delicious. Great starters and salads, fantastic meat plates, large portions and tasty house wine!!

We went to Elias' Garden for lunch based on the trip advisor ranking and reviews and are so glad that we did! The on-the-house tzatziki and cheese spreads that came with olives were both incredibly tasty. We ordered the sauteed mushrooms, which were delicious, especially with the garlic puree that accompanied them. The cabbage, carrot and pepper salad was so much better than we have had anywhere else - that touch of ginger made this simple dish an unexpectedly delicious part of our meal. And, we savored ever bite of the roasted peppers and tomatoes stuffed with perfectly seasoned rice, remarking that this was our favorite dish thus far in our Greecian travels! In addition to raving about their food, the staff provided that perfect balance of friendliness and attentiveness without hovering. They were truly pleased that we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. So, even though the restaurant was on the outskirts of town and we almost abandoned our search to find it, we can't recommend it enough. A true gem that you must try if your travels take you through the Meteora area!

We really enjoyed our visit to Elias’ Garden! It’s a short walk from the hotels and busy area in Kalambaka but the food and atmosphere are worth it!

We loved the grilled feta and tomato appetizer! So tasty!

Then we enjoyed the beef and potatoes cooked in a clay pot and the homeste bean soup.

Ares, our waiter, spoke perfect English which helped since we do not speak Greek. He was very friendly and helpful. We arrived between the lunch and dinner rush so we enjoyed an abundance of time and attention.

The prices are very reasonable as well!

All in all - a win in our book! Try it!

Had a dinner there. Ordered grilled cheese and stewed beef in a clay pot.
Cheese was ok, beef was quite dry, especially on the top where it was covered by hard baked cheese.
Not great.
