We stumbled upon Elena's when we were getting hungry while in Punta Gorda. Fisherman's Village had 4 restaurants and all were packed. It was good that they were as we had good food at probably half the price. Service was good and fast. Be sure to try it when in this part of town.

A varied menu, cordial wait staff, nice sized booths and tables, a nice ambiance which permits conversation and reasonable prices. Not located in our local or we'd be going back to try out other items.

Out for the afternoon and decided to try Elena's in Punta Gorda for lunch, It was packed not a seat empty when we walked in the door, within 10 minutes we had a seat and we were quickly waited on and had our meal in the snap of our fingers. I ordered a fisherman's platter and my wife had a... More

We have eaten here before and the food is always very good. Service is great. They try to get you in and out in a timely manner. We will eat here again.

Reading the reviews here I found that Elena's served Greek style food and decided to try their Gyro. The Gyro was very good and the French fries served with it were even better, closer to what I would consider Belgian fries. The Gyro, fries and an extra bowl of Tzatziki were only 7.95 and everything was excellent!

Elana's has been around for years. It boasts reasonable prices and good food with a pleasant, low key atmosphere

We have eaten at Elenas for 12 years and last week just walked out. It was a mess. I don't know what happened. None of the regular people were working. The wait was crazy. We put in our name like usual and after an hour there was still a huge list of people ahead of us. We finally just left... More
