The food was yummy. Atmosphere good. Waiter OUTSTANDING - so friendly, helpful and accommodating (since we had a 2yo with us), and very courteous. Thank you for making it a great experience for us. I’m coming back with a group of girlfriends next.
Cold feeling Marble tables, put a table cloth over them, much more comfortable and welcoming
Fantastic food and amazing wine selection! Nicky looked after us very well
Overall, Elyros was excellent - delicious food, just the right amounts and beautifully presented. The service was faultless and our wait staff were very knowledgeable about the food and it’s traditions. My only complaint would be about the sound level and choice of background music. It was too loud and jarringly inappropriate. Some gentle background Greek music would have been much more welcome.
It was a relatively quiet night so staff attention was a plus. Staff really friendly and service was great. Staff's food recommendation was honest, and we had plenty. Overall the food quality was good but not great (for a one-hat rated restaurant). Still a very pleasant evening.
We took a friend, who is caeliac, to Elyros for her birthday lunch and were extremely pleased with the way she was catered for, they really had an understanding of her requirements. The meal was delicious, except for the lamb which was extremely fatty. The wine list catered for all budgets and we particularly liked the Casa Red wine. The staff were friendly and had a good knowledge of the food they were serving. Great place for Sunday lunch.
We Just enjoyed a good dinner, good service and the environment a little bit quite, we would like to
listen music a little bit loud so the other people couldn't hear our conversation but definitely we would like to came back.
Brilliant restaurant, had the premium "feed me" menu which was excellent value @$70 each. Food was varied, delicious and not overpowering. The wines were selected for us to match the menu, one white, one red, both Greek. Again excellent, mid priced, and perfectly matched. Service was also great, efficient, unobtrusive, friendly. A very generous restaurant in all ways, would highly recommend to all.
My second time at Elyros. This time took my mum for her 88 birthday. The staff treated her like a princess. It was very special.
We go to Elyros once a month for the great food, wine and service.
Highly recommended. Lois and Ian.
Fantastic food, amazing service and great atmosphere
Service staff were flexible and understanding. We’re able to easily accommodate tables dietary requirements that exceeded my expectations.
Really enjoyed our night and will definitely return!
Elyros is a wonderful restaurant. Great Cretan food and wine list. We go on average once a month and would highly recommend.
Loïs and Ian.
Lovely meal, delightfully presented and great value for money.
Fantastic food - especially the lamb. A bit noisy but that got better as the night went on and people left. Great service.
Elyros is brilliant. Delicious food, wine and perfect service. You feel spoilt and valued but it is not an overly fussy experience. The set menus are great value.
Great night out with friends with lovely wines and food. Looking forward to going again.
A lovely dinner. Food was excellent. Service outstanding with marvellous wine to compliment the fine food. Highly recommended although at $100/head it may not suit everyone's budget.
Always very consistent with the quality and service and some very fine Greek wines. Excellent restaurant.
although we live locally we had never been to Elyros. I saw the chef on a TV programme and thought we should give it a try. It was very good - even though we are not much into shared plates, the waiter went through our options carefully and we chose a set menu which gave us delicious choices and plenty of it too. we had great service and plan to go back there soon.
Great night, great service, great food, will definitely return. Thanks to Guy and the team
Came here for our anniversary dinner and ordered the four course tasting menu. Service was excellent, friendly and could not be faulted. Entrees started off well, with tasty fava dip, olives and feta. The yuzu salmon was delightful and refreshing. Here the food went downhill. The main was the lamb, and it was bland and not appetizing. The grain salad was stodgy (only plus was the bursts of pomegranate). The chips were nicely cooked but very salty. The dessert was mediocre. We came mid week so perhaps the kitchen wasn't at its finest, but we have had better food elsewhere.
Perfect sharing plates with outstanding service. Thoughtful kids meal
Food good, but portions small & does become very pricey! We were very disappointed with a waitress aswell who refused to take a photo of us because she was not happy with a comment that was made by someone from our table, even though it was not directed to her, and had absolutely nothing to do with her! It was a comment that was directed purely to himself! If this waitress is going to be soooo sensitive & reactive, then she should NOT be serving customers, or expose herself to different groups of people that may use different language or ways of expressing themselves!! It had absolutely nothing to do with her!! My advice is: Stick to your job!! You are NOT ALWAYS going to like what you hear whilst working!!
The restaurant was lovely, I’ll be recommending it to friends and returning myself.
It’s great that this survey asks about noise. I rated Elyros as quiet. I’m not sure if it was but I didn’t notice a problem and that is a huge win for me. I am so tired and grumpy from restaurants where the music is way too loud and inappropriate for the restaurant. Worse still it is often not music at all but a synthetic percussion that would drive a sane person to distraction.
My friend & I elected to have the smaller lunch special, $45 for a selection of small courses, about the price of entree+main. Food was lovely, very good olive oil and bread and waitperson accommodating, swapped coffee for dessert (we were full). Interesting wine list including many Greek wines (and I only looked at the by-the-glass list), of which the waitperson was knowledgeable, and allowed me to taste before committing. Excellent service.
We had such a great dinner Xmas catch up at Elyros! Service was great and food outstanding (lots of it!!). Cocktail with Gin and cucumber was one worth returning for!
Elyros has amazingly delicious cretan food. We cannot fault it. We were there last Saturday night with another couple so 4 of us. The noise was absolutely dreadful we could hardly hear the person sitting directly opposite. What a shame because we love this restaurant! I know the restaurant can't control the noise level but on a Saturday night it's quite unbearable. We probably wouldn't go again with another couple cause we had so much trouble hearing.my husband even has noise reduction ear pods which he wore....But you shouldn't have to do that in a restaurant. Love the food though it's amazing!!
Is there some noise absorption that the restaurant could implement??
Lovely food, but service was extremely slow. We had a 4 course tasting menu, and after 2 hours and 45 minutes still hadn’t been served our dessert, so we asked for the bill and had it to go.
Great service and food would highly recommend and and will visit again in the future
Always a 5 star service at this restaurant... love it.
Our family enjoyed a delicious four-course sharing banquet. Each dish represented the unique cuisine of Crete and was served non-intrusively and accompanied by a description of the food we were about to enjoy.
The amount of food was gauged perfectly for our table of four so that we could enjoy each morsel without feeling as though we had eaten too much and without wastage.
We were offered excellent service and partook of superb food.
A wonderful , fine-dining experience! Thank you to the staff of 'Elyros Restaurant'.
Great food, interesting wine list. Two small plates and one shared plate was plenty for two.
We had the set menu which at $55 each was really good value. Delicious and so well presented. Will definitely go back.
Excellent service and food. Understood requirements for a Coeliac. I celebrated my birthday with friends here last month and then came back for date night and was not disappointed. Excellent consistent service. Thank you.
The staff were great, atmosphere sensational and food excellent and reasonably priced. Definitely will be back.
Excellent food and service with outstanding tastes for all dishes. Fixed menu selection still allowed some flexibilty and all staff knowledgeble and attentive. A very good experience
Excellent expression of Cretan food, handled with precision and care. Service was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I was surprised by the quality of the two Cretan wines I tried by the glass. Strongly recommend.
Food fabulous and great quality, service great and a small birthday surprise was presented to our guest of honour. Was very quiet for a Saturday lunch venue and we loved that.
