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.

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.

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
