About Elia Greek Restaurant
Love Greek food then this is the place for you!
Authentic and tasty Greek food been coming here for years and never had a bad experience!
Staff are attentive and give good advice to those who have never had Greek food before. Staff are also never pushy or trying to clear you from the table to get the next people in like other restaurants. There is a great ambience and relaxed vibe, great for catching up with friends over good food and drink. Staff always go the extra mile for any special occasion as well!
We always go here to rekindle those holidays memories of our wonderful holidays in Zakynthos!

Specialities include Kleftiko slow cooked lamb on the bone in tomato sauce and Keftedes, traditional meatballs made with freshly ground beef seasoned with Greek herbs. The restaurant also offers an extensive Greek wine list which includes Agioritiko, a dry wine from a monastery in Mount Athos, and Metoxi which comes from the mountains of Halkidiki.
Elia also offers a range of meze dishes with include dolmathes (rice and herbs wrapped in grapevine leaves), tigania loukanika (spicy pork village sausages cooked with onions and mixed peppers) and naturally, many options including feta and haloumi cheese.
Elia’s focus on authenticity can be traced down to their choice of olive oil which is created from the family vineyards.
