Ellis is a real throwback – great food, cheap, chaotic service. We visited it on a number of occasions during our fortnight quite simply because we thought the food was so good.

Husband's stuffed burger was grilled and very good; my stuffed calamari was pretty good although somewhat rubbery in parts. House wine was awful! Service was prompt and friendly. They seemed to tolerate the cats who hung out by the restaurant which is a big plus for me...

We really enjoyed our visit earlier this week. The food was lovely. We had traditional Greek meals which were very tasty. Also very reasonably priced given the location. The waiter was very attentive and made our visit enjoyable. Would happily return in the future.

Two of our group had visited the previous evening and after enjoying it had booked a table for 10 of us, the last night of our holiday. We had been promised a table on the front overlooking the sunset but we ended up on the other side of the balcony. We arrived early and it was quite busy, including another... More

We stopped by for a late night dinner and were pleasantly surprised with an authentic meal, lovely live music in a spectacular setting. A must for casual dinner in Fira!

We got the house wine which was unbearable. Appetizers where not cooked well. The service was mediocre. The view is nice, thats it.
