Have been coming to Elios for over 30 years. The food and service has been of a consistently high standard.
Paul always makes time to have a chat no matter busy the restaurant is. We love coming here and cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Have a few favourite pasta dishes but have just discovered the pizzas. Wow amazing!
Keep up great work guys

Lovely food and excellent value for money.. the only thing I’d mention is that outside there is a bit of road noise and you can occasionally get some car fumes but other than that it was a lovely experience. Will definitely dine here again.

Our pizza and duck confit were both fantastic. The staff were attentive yet respectful of our space. The wine was fantastic - highly recommend the Chianti.

Elios gives a perfect relaxed dining experience, the staff are really experienced and friendly . Food is amazing, one of my favourites is the Queenslander pizza, and the pricing is very reasonable. Go, enjoy!

Excellent food, excellent service. Outside seating is rather hot on a hot night, could do with some fans. Easily forgotten when you take a bite of the food however!

Great service, the waitress and manager were very talkative and kind, seemed experienced. Food was great, although it did take a little while to come out, but i'm not complaining. love the ambiance, the music playlist, consisting mainly of jazz, supplemented by red lighting is a great mood setter.

I have been here a number of times and always receive great, friendly service. We went with young children on this occasion and they were catered to very well. The kids menu was perfect and the staff were very good with them. We sat in the outside area which has a good vibe. Food was delicious!

Cute little restaurant - friendly enough staff and extensive menu. Food was middle of the road - expecting a little better for a $29.50 pasta main but nice enough. I think you can find better value but it’s nice enough for a night out.
