About Elia Greek Restaurant
Great meal as always
Had a lovely meal, food was really nice. Waiters are so attentive. Lovely restaurant in great location.
A great find. Excellent authentic Greek food and service.
First of all despite very friendly service I never asked for staff names, so can’t personally thank you all for a lovely Sunday afternoon lunch, with wine.
From entering the premises located right in the centre of Glasgow my wife and me knew we had found a gem of restaurant. Greek food for most of my life has been only on holiday in the Aegean or Ionian Sea regions. Looking forward to Kefalonia in September we wanted to sample future meals from authentic tavernas in Peratatas, the chicken meatballs and Dolmathes were stunning, and the chicken and lamb kebabs with Greek salad washed down with a bottle or two of Makedonikos white wine made us wish we were there already.
Elia is a fantastic authentic Greek restaurant and really great value, and hopefully we will get back next month, and every month thereafter.

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.
