The entrees were fabulous but everything else was not really great. Would not recommend, not really sure what the fuss is about.

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.

SUCH a lovely place - really interesting food (from Crete), served lovingly by a wait staff team who clearly love working there and care about the patrons having a great experience. Everything was delicious - we had both of the dips (fava was our favourite) and the pies, the slow cooked lamb, some sides and the rice pudding (outstanding, but definitely enough for 2!).. Good sized serves, nice ambience, and the staff are very attentive and make great suggestions.

Elyros provides a lovely ambience with great quality food. We had the lunch time set menu which had a lot of variety and a great chance to explore a few Creatian dishes. The Greek sparking wine is also highly recommend.

Great food, premium set menu was good, only perhaps the truffle pasta was on the saltier side for my taste but everything else was great. The appetizers to start were top notch. Loved the fava, sort of like a Greek hummus dip. Lamb for main course was fantastic, very nice winter dish. Rich and satisfying. They went above and beyond by bringing my fiancée a piece of cake saying happy birthday for dessert as I had requested. Fantastic and very attentive service.

Beautiful food and attentive service. A table of kids sitting near us was annoying (separate to their parents) not the sort of place I’d bring my children on a Saturday night, but hey. Otherwise beautiful ambience, decor and a delicious 4 course dinner!

The restaurant had an excellent vibe, food was full of flavour and the service was outstanding. Would highly recommend Elyros to friends and family who are looking for an authentic Greek restaurant with a modern twist. The twelve of us really enjoyed the modern greek food and the delicious range of wines that was on offer.

We had decided to make sure when we visited Melbourne to dine at your restaurant after watching Chef,s Line. We live 500 kms away.
That is how long we have been waiting .
However your restaurant was very hard to locate, even though we had the street number.
We walked up & down , the sandwich board was a clue but even so it looked closed.
Why not put a tasteful big number on the door, and a horizontal street sign under the verandah.
For short people it is hard to see into the restaurant so all the more reason to make sure your easily identified.
The food was superb and the service also, and we will return

We enjoyed an interesting and diverse tasting menu with excellent food and service, and would highly recommend Elyros restaurant.

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.

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.
