What an enjoyable place to go for Greek food, it was amazing, the waitress and waiters were very attentive, suggesting what to order, which was amazing..and the little extras as we were there for a bday, the slice of dessert to take home..will definitely be back..

Elenis was enjoyable. Good value and yummy food. However it was very noisy (but it was a Saturday night)

The tables for 2 in front of the bar were way too small to be comfortable.
We were too cramped to properly enjoy our meal. Not enough space between the bar and the tables. Every time a group stopped to pay you ended up with people pushing up against you.
The food here is respectable.

Ambiance and atmosphere wise we felt there were too many diners were jammed into the upstairs dinning area which made sitting and enjoying the meal a somewhat 'long-haul economy flight' style affair. The wait staff and patrons had trouble serving food between the tables as there were so many jammed in togther.
Food wise the portions were a great size and the cocktails brilliant. We ordered the Greek Meat platter for two, only to be dumfounded that (on top of an effectively $31 per head main meal) pita bread needed to be purchased in addition to the platter which coincidently included lamb and chiken yiros meat - which should/can only be eaten with the flat bread. So the meat platter went cold as we waited for the pita which arrived piping hot.
Given the noisey, and cramped atmosphere and the lack of value for money for the food we will chose to continue trying out other Greek restaurants for the time being.

Second time to Eleni's and it was another great experience. Took 8 family members along and had the banquet, we were not disappointed.
Will definitely be going back there again.

My girlfriend and I went to eleni’s for dinner on a Friday night. We were extremely happy with our meals: Greek meatballs with lemon potatoes, pork skewers with pita and salad, Greek salad, bread, and washed down with some ouzo.
This was one of the best meals we’ve had recently. The meatballs in particular were too good to describe, and the generous serves and complimentary bread were simple stand outs.
Would definitely recommend, and we will certainly be going back!

Food was fantastic, service was brilliant a D staff were really friendly. Has a real feel of a family run restaurant that cares about what they do.
The only minor downside was walking through to a table near the back of the restaurant involved a little dodging of people due to narrow gaps. Would defi itely go back here again and would highly recommend.

Far and away the best Greek cuisine restaurant we have eaten at . Shared the seafood platter and a moussaka berween 4 of us and were left VERY full . The prawns and calamari were both fantastically fresh ( calamari especially tender ) , one serve of baklava was enough for a nice taste for all 4 and a great way to end the night . One down side was the wine & metaxa were a bit expensive .

Eleni's Taverna Friday night was so much fun love breaking the plates and the food was exceptional but one thing would have preferred Lokmades for the dessert

Good authentic Greek food, excellent service. Love it!
This is a must restaurant to visit in Yarraville.

But seating close to the entrance door on a cold night was not the best.

We Ordered $160 of drinks and food between 5 people, and when we placed the order the waiter told us we hadn’t ordered enough to be worth a table and heavily pressured us to purchase more. He was grumpy with us and it was very awkward to stay after that. Ruined the experience and embarrassed me for choosing this restaurant in the first place.

Elini’s Kitchen is great for a group. Food is delicious and service prompt and friendly. We had a banquet and it was a generous serving with dips, saganaki and a large platter of meats. All reasonably priced. We’ll return again

Nice busy Greek restaurant. We had a lovely meal. My wife had the prawns which were absolutely delicious. I had the Mousaka which was a bit overcooked for my taste but still nice. For desert, we had the amazing balaclava ice cream : wow !!! highly recommended.

A bit on the pricy side, but nice food with a good atmosphere.
