About Elia Greek Restaurant
My first visit to Elia but it won't be my last, I'll be a regular now! Fantastic food with varied menu, friendly knowledgeable staff ( house red is fabulous! ), no hurry and such a lovely family friendly atmosphere. You must pay a visit, it's right on George Square next to the red City Tour Bus Stance, i won't be passing by again I tell ya! Loved you Elia!
Once again a faultless and enjoyable visit to Elia. In fact I had been here two days before this visit so to say I think this is a great restaurant would be an understatement.
This visit was to celebrate my friends big birthday and we had reserved a booth, bottle of prosecco on arrival. Slight hitch this was not on table on arrival but did get to the tabled very quickly once this was noticed.
Great food and fab service from the staff, they even sang happy birthday when the brought birthday cake to the table.
Look forward to returning soon.
