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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

A real find. Excellent food (we had the $50 set menu), excellent waiter service and above all a quiet acoustic environment ... which makes all the difference for a good dining experience.

Our recent lunch at Elyrios was excellent on so many levels - superb food and wine, faultless service and knowledgeable information about Cretan food and the Greek islands in general, from our delightful waitress. The only negative aspect was the choice of background music - could we suggest some gentle Greek music, maybe bouzouki, would have made the experience perfect!

Amazing food with all the influences of Crete. You can see and appreciate the owners’ passion for sharing the culinary treasures of Crete. I recommend the sharing plates on the set menu to maximise the experience.

Delicious set menu, starting with Greek olives, warm bread, fava dip and home made Cretan cheese pies. The cured pork and salmon were also lovely. Tender slow cooked lamb was so yummy, with crunchy potatoes cooked in lamb fat! Dessert was rice pudding to finish things off. Look forward to dining here again!

We had a fantastic time here on Friday night. My husband is gf and it’s the first restaurant where the staff have known exactly how to handle it and there were many gf options - what a pleasant surprise! We had the 3 course option which was very yummy and lots of food and all dishes were generous sizes. Would highly recommend! Great staff great food beautiful building! A great night out for a special occasion!

This was my third visit to Elyros and I am always prepared to take friends there. The food is great, waiter very obliging and knowledgeable about the food he serves. Elegant surroundings and peaceful ambience. Mid week special including a glass of wine is good value.

Elyros is a beautiful place to dine. The staff are most friendly, helpful and extremely professional. The chef went out of his/her way to cater for my dietary issues. I was pleasantly surprised by the substitutes provided for me.
The food was delicious overall, but the lamb shoulder was not such a hit for both my partner and myself.
This was our second dining experience at Elyros and I’m sure a third will follow in the future.
Thank you so much to all concerned.
