We ate at Elpis 3/4 nights, after we discovered its existence we didn't bother eat elsewhere for dinner. The house wine is very nice, we... More

We visited this place for dinner in our search for a decent place to eat in Ios, which isn't easy. The food was nice, steak and burger (bifteki in greek) but the portions were small. Same goes for the greek salad. My big objection was the grilled aubergine salad were instead for grilled aubergine as it is served in Salonica... More
