The best Greek Food I’ve ever had. Very impressed!
Everything was great except the main - lamb was fatty.
What a delightful lunch , a gem to visit , great food
Four of us relaxed over a delicious meal which catered for our dietary requirements with style and no fuss. Can’t fault Elyria!
As a local Greek restaurant, Elyros is a surprise package. Lovely ambience and a warm welcome greeted our table of 4 to the bar area. (This was actually a glitch in our booking as I couldn't see an option, but no matter)
We were happily seated by the fire on a cold winter's night. Being COVID times, most restaurants only offer a set menu but Elyros gave us options. The set menu won us over, and the quality of food didn't disappoint. It catered well to meat and pesca eaters alike. Presentation, service, food knowledge - all authentic. Pricing was medium to upper end. All in all would highly recommend and we'll be back for sure.
Food delicious and staff lovely and informative about foods
The food was amazing and we left full and happy. Thanks for a wonderful night!
I have been to Elyros a number of times and it is a favourite of mine. The food and service never disappoint.
Group of 5 for a birthday dinner. Staff attentive but non intrusive. Despite difficult circumstances, it was a great night, excellent food (and lots of it). We will be back.
The service and food at Elyros continue to be outstanding. The ambience is energetic. Was lovely to have a table by the fireplace.
Rustic style grecian dishes, prepared and cooked to very high standard, with great attention to detail.
Full meze always is too much for us, so we cherry picked from the a la carte.
Choice of music was a bit random when we were there. I think someone else thought so too because the volume was turned down after a while.
Food was very nice ... bit noisy but overall a good night out
Brilliant experience. Ample food. Beautiful service and food experience.
Food and service spot on as always. So happy to be back..
Nice to be back having lunch in a restaurant. Food was delicious and service was top rate.
Unfortunately the restriction on gatherings in public places has hit this wonderful restaurant hard. We were treated to an outstanding meal with fantastic service. I how they can weather this current situation.
An exceptional experience with authentic food and wine, immaculate service and an intimate environment. Kali Orexi
I will begin by stating Elyros exceeded my expectations.
From the moment we walked in we were looked after.
Thr service by Laura and Fiona as well as Angie the coowner was exceptional. They genuinely showed customer service and chatted to us which was nice.
We choose to take up the premium sharing menu and we definitely we're not disappointed nor left feeling hungry. Not only did they wow us with the food, they accommodated my allergy for each course without hesitation! Super impressed.
I could not fault anything the food, the service, the drinks, the ambiance nothing at all.
I highly recommend Elyros if you have not dined there.
I'm looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you to all the staff and for looking after us.
This is a superb restaurant. The staff are amazing and will provide very good help and advice on both your food choices and beverage choices. Especially with beverages, tell them what genre of wine you like and I guarantee you they will select a suitable wine from their selection. Do not be put off but "no BYO" they have such a wide range at reasonable prices that you won't be disappointed.
5th time I’ve been and as usual standards were of the highest class. Amazing menu and staff are incredibly attentive without being obtrusive. Will keep coming back
Food was exceptional. A wonderful meal and staff very attentive and helpful. Would love to return another time.
Great food and good service. Very knowledgeable about the wines however they are quite expensive when drinking by the bottle. The octopus was slightly overcooked but overall the meal was delicious, we went for the premium menus and it was well worth it.
Welcoming staff.Good service from our friendly waiter Our main course (lamb) was very salty as was the side of wilted greens
Overall we enjoyed our visit and will return
Beautiful food, great ambiance and lovely staff. We had a wonderful evening.
Enjoyed sitting on a table overlooking the street. Good and friendly service. Great food.
We and our companions enjoyed our night here again. Well done
A wonderful less rushed atmosphere to enjoy some fine food
Maybe due to Christmas crowd, service was very slow when the dinner crowd started coming in (20/12 friday evening). Wait staff is friendly but lady boss is rude and unfriendly. Unimpressed. Overall better places elsewhere for the value.
Food was really good, they accommodated those in group who were vegetarian. I would happily go back.
I love this place so it saddens me to say that we ordered a premium banquet and it was pretty lean. A balmain bug that just tasted salty, and a measly port of the lamb which I adore! Go and eat off the menu it’s a great place to eat
A very pleasant evening, interesting and enjoyable food, crisp white wine. Very enjoyable
when restaurant is quiet, as in 6pm, we were given great attention. as the restaurant filled up, the service got worse to the point of stroppy staff. they looked unhappy, and it filters into our dining experience. Our chicken was clearly not cooked but was told this is how they cook chicken! My dining friend comes from restaurant experience, has her food safety cert and if she stated it was uncooked, I am going with her! when we asked for the dessert menu, we were told we had 20min left at table. Considering there were plenty of empty tables, I did not think it was necessary but our bookings were for two hours so we must abide by this! I was not sure if the restaurant realized we are the customers and not bothersome people they were happy to get rid off!
Loved our dinner at Elyros!! Delicious food and Greek wine — definitely reccommend!!
Lovely food with exemplary service.Excellent value for money.
Waiter was amazing
We were very disappointed with our dinner at Elyrios. We have eaten there several times but the dinner was not up to scratch on Saturday night. We went with the set price menu which consisted of olives, a basket of very stale bread, olive oil, cream, tuna, cheese pastries and a chickpea dip. Nothing remarkable and would have been so much happier with fresh bread and some quality accompaniments. The salads were lovely as were the chunky chips but the shoulder lamb and salmon were also quite ordinary. The desserts were terrible. Maybe we made a mistake choosing the set price dinner and would certainly not do it again.
BEST service and food!!! Love the TEAM and will be back 🧡
As always Elyros is a great place to eat it and enjoy great wine and food. Especially the slow roasted lamb is delicious.
A great restaurant starts with great service and Ange and the team definitely deliver that. then you have to back it up with quality food and this is certainly the case. Fantastic & authentic Greek/Cretan food taken to another level. Wine list is right on the mark. Atmosphere and ambiance is what you would expect for shared dining and on a Saturday night! Definitely a must.
