“Great restaurant for families”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We were travelling with small children and chose this restaurant because the menu appealed to them. The service was unobtrusive and quiet but very courteous, even towards the children. We tried a wide selection of items to share family-style. We enjoyed everything we ordered and the children said this was their favourite meal of our two weeks cruising in the Mediterranean. We particularly enjoyed the Santorini salad and grilled seafood. It was an enjoyable cool and shady outdoor spot - very relaxing.

“Simple no frills service and meal”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Came here for dinner as away from the caldera with no views and thought would be reasonably priced. Ordered a chicken souvlaki, red wine about 15€. Service was good as I was the only one in the restaurant (last week of October) and some restaurants and hotels are shut so there is less tourist activity which I prefer.

Food was made fresh and chicken was succulent and tasty and same with grilled vegetables. If you after something simple and fresh with no frills I would recommend this place.

Had no issues with service or wifi.

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

The best food I have found in Greece so far. I had chicken in a mustard sauce. It was the tenderest chicken I have ever eaten, period. My wife had dish made of white eggplant with cheeses that was superb. Find this spot, it is worth it!

“Reasonable atmosphere and good location”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

The service and atmosphere in Elia were OK but nothing special – there are so many great places to eat in Fira so you do expect more than this.

Unfortunately we tried the sea food platter (for two) and could only eat some of it – under the circumstances £50 seemed a bit steep. The wine was OK.

“Advertises wifi but complains when asked for password”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Similar to a few of the other reviews of this restaurant, it was just alright. The waiter was not very friendly from the start, and only got more unfriendly after I asked him for the wifi password. "Of course there is wifi! No wifi, no restaurant!" he said to me...
As for the food, the Greek salad was great, the moussaka alright, and the house red wine was the worst we have had in Greece.
We chose this spot because it didn't advertise a "caldera view" (it didn't have one) and we figured they would focus more on the food and service. We were wrong. I would not recommend this restaurant as there are likely far better places with far better food and service.
