Description: Sister restaurant of Kokkari, Evvia has been serving beautiful and elegant Greek cuisine since 1995. Fabulous fish, savory roasted meats, and sun-soaked vegetables are jazzed up with a spritz of lemon, a little olive oil, and herbs. There is perfection in simplicity.

I would come here once a year and it is consistently great food and service. Sharing dishes is a must to try all the wonderful choices. Despite always being busy you are never felt rushed.

Excellent quality ingredients and cooking style. Highly recommend for a predictable delicious American style meal especially for those who enjoy rack of lamb and red meats.

Evian has more Greek than anything other kind of cuisine. Love, love, love the family style plates ( small to large ). The bread is flaky, the cheeses ooze with flavor, the meats are plum with juice and flavor and by the time desert rolls around we need to wait to create space for it.... this place is special, one our top 10 places to eat on special occasions, but then each time we eat there feels like a special occasion

Some of our fav dishes

Anything with feta ( feta & Olives, baked feta, watermelon and feta), calamari, the lemon drop soup, Bert salad, lamb chops, moussaka, salmon, lamb burger, zucchini cakes, ..

This is all making me hungry!!

A tip, make reservations for popular dinner times several days in advance. Try going there for lunch it is easier to get seated and more wallet friendly ( just enough for desert )..

A wonderful restaurant. The environment feels like you are in the middle of the tech renaissance; great minds around you. The food, as always, is consistently excellent. You can indulge in small plates and call it a meal or add a main course which is usually large enough to share. A wonderful place to celebrate any occasion.

Have only been in the Valley 7 weeks and easily best place we have eaten and for my Greek wife one of the best Greek restaurants we have eaten in. We just had selection of starters for lunch - some are really main course size - especially the Smelt/White bait. Had Dolmades - good, Spanakotiropita - very good, Marithes Tiganites (whitebait/smelts)- excellent, Calamari - very good, Saganaki - excellent, Gigantes - good.

Good atmosphere, and service. Lamb roasting on the spit looked very appetising for dinner. Only thing lacking was takeaway left overs were all put in one box together - and came out pretty messy. Used to Dubai where every dish got its own plastic container.
