We ate twice at Elia restaurant. The Tmosphere and music are so traditional to Greece. We loved the food, the venue, the music. Had friendly waiters and service and food are excellent. Would recommend Elia to all travllers to Santorini.

After a week long stay in Santorini, My wife and I had great food everywhere we stopped...until we got to Elia Taverna. We ordered the Basic pizza and Mussels pasta - both were bland and flavorless... My wife ordered a cocktail which almost no alcohol in it, and was again...bland. With so many excellent places to eat in Fira, you... More

I dined here as a solo. Has a very cozy and romantic atmosphere. The mousakka was delicious and big! I had santorini red wine (forgot what it's called) and it was the best I've ever had. It's a bit on the pricy end

We ordered Greek Salad, seafood souvlaki and grilled calamari. Squid was tender but a little salty. For €14 We expected more from the souvlaki. Broccoli from the side dish of souvlaki and calamari were already spoiled.

First time, the waiter was kind. He gave us a nice greeting so we were grateful. But we changed our mind when we met the terrible food. We ordered chicken souvlaki and octopus. Actually the octopus was okay but chicken souvlaki was terrible. They served us a burnt food and the thin bread was very hard and dark. The most... More

We arrived in for dinner here at 8pm when it wasn't very busy for that time of day and felt like they wanted us in and out ASAP. We ordered starters and mains which basically arrived within 5 mins of each other when we weren't even finished starters with no explanation, waiter just shoved the plates on the table. Food...

We enjoyed the food: fresh fish and very tasty fava. It would have worked better with a smile by the waiter.

We popped in for late lunch and selected a table inside in the corner which was dirty - upon asking the waiter to clean it, he shrugged and said to sit somewhere else. Not a great start to the lunch. However, things improved and the half carafe of white wine at only €6 was fine, my spiral pasta with chicken... More

I would actually agree with the last reviewer. Great menu & decor and food was really lovely. However, our mains arrived before we finished our starters so the meal felt a little rushed. My pasta dish (spiral pasta with garlic, olives, pesto & basil) was simple but delicious.

Between pizza, pasta and greek food we ordered Moussaka and stuffed eggplant. Moussaka was definitely the better choice. Taste was ok, but not many spices used so we had to add salt and pepper. Compared to other touristy restaurants in Fira OK. Atmosphere is warm and friendly. The staff just did their work not more nor less.

Thank hboluki
