Reviewed yesterday NEW

in Elia you can have different styles of lunch & dinner, not just traditional greek ... eg besides Greek Salad also Ceasar Salad ... so if you already had too much greek traditionals than try this restaurant at the beach line

We were very happy with our choice of Elia, among several neighbouring restaurants. Dimitri (the owner and chef) and his staff do everything to make your meal a great experience, and we enjoyed his special moussaka. The view over the bay is magnificent and the meal was very good value.

Stunning location with a view of the sea. The menu offered a great section. The waiter was exceptionally good in recommending an excellent local cheese and wine. The fish I ordered was fresh, well prepared and perfectly cooked. Prices were very reasonable. Overall an enjoyable experience.

We love visiting Gialova and eating at Elia every time we are in Greece. The staff are hospitable and friendly and the food is delicious. We got to sit there for hours eating dinner and dessert while our children got to play in the beach between servings. Will definitely be returning there on our next trip to Messinia.

Food is lovely, fresh and tasty. The portion size is on the large side. Children's menu is not avaliable but it would be idea if they offer half portions for the kids. My 11 year old son had fried squid and he is a big eater and even I think I couldn't eat the whole lot myself. I love the... More

We had a late lunch at this Taverna, right on the waterfront, with our kids. Since we came out of season the place was almost empty, but still the food was fresh and very tasty, and we enjoyed the Greek delicacies we ordered even when we didn't know what was in them ! The service was very good and friendly... More
