Squaremeal Review of The Elysée ?

One of the capital’s more mature Greek restaurants, Elysée is currently in a state of limbo. Having had a much-needed facelift in late 2010, the surroundings certainly look the part: three floors of a handsome Georgian townhouse done out in classy, neutral tones. The food has improved, too, with the fresh flavours of modern Greece finding room among the popular holiday favourites. Mezze such as vine leaves or spanakopita vie for attention with a salad of watermelon, barrel-aged feta & mint, & there’s a short list of larger dishes from the grill: traditional skewers or lamb cutlets with a cracked wheat salad & pancetta-wrapped green beans, say. Sadly, unattractive prices & ’indifferent’ service can result in a shortage of customers – a shame, because it’s a fantastic site with great potential.

Good experience

I went to Elysee with a group of friends. It was a good experience. There was a bit of everything which we loved; live music in the main and belly dancing. We loved the food and ambiance. The waiters were very helping and always smiling while serving. Upstairs there's also a roof garden and a lovely bar and romantic area for dining. I am going to take my boyfriend here, he will surely going to like it so much.

This restaurant is just fantastic and worth a visit. I can only encourage you to try as many different dishes as possible from the Greek Meze (with the tasting menu available) and easy to trust their award winning chef Santino Busciglio. It 's all delicious. The staff is very attentive and the atmosphere is fantastic! For me one of the best Greek restaurants in London. They also have a full sized cocktail bar and outside terrace for pre and affter dinner drinks open until 4am!

My wife and I had the Greek tasting menu and enjoyed the whole experience. The team did an excellent job ensuring that we had a most enjoyable evening. Gabby did an excellent job front of house and provided great wines to go with the excellent food. It's not just the food that provides a great dining experience, it's also the ambiance and the live entertainment provided at the Elysee. I would definitely visit again. Cosy and lively restaurant.

Coming here is always special – from the food to the service, the entertainment or the decor, everything is a tantalising treat! The staff are attentive without being intrusive, the menu offers a variety of dishes to suit all palettes and as a lady who loves champagne, the champagne cocktails are delicious. The food is presented beautifully with an array of flavours. I had the grilled salmon to start which was cooked perfectly, followed by the seabass. Fish lovers will enjoy the menu! The wine...

We had previously found this restaurant serving great food whilst strolling around Oxford Street on our last visit to London some 2 years ago. On our current visit, the quality has not diminished. We were greeted warmly be staff and seated. Our order was taken and our drinks and food arrived quickly. The food was tasty and portion sizes were good. This is a family run restaurant with high standards. Will definately re-visit on our next trip to London.

I used to visit the original Elysee in the 1960's under the personal management of the three Karageorgis brothers, George, Michael and Ulysses which I really loved, I actually still love Elysee now, some 50 years later. The ambiance and the welcome from the current owners of the same family Giggs, Kyri and Kerry (3 cousins) is as good as in the past. and it was worth a visit as I am live in Singapore. Being very different in ever way, more modern now as compared to traditional before, but still keeping...

I have dined at the Elysee regularly and the quality of the food and service has always been first class. They have a great food and wine menu and one can dine on different levels in the building, including the first floor roof terrace with its retractable canopy for all weather dining. They also have live entertainment every evening after 9pm where the atmosphere gets really lively and fun. I highly recommend The Elysee.

We even took what was left home with us. Service was excellent,and the waiting staff friendly and welcoming. We will be back!

I brought my friends from Norway to Elysee as it is my favourite greek restaurant. I lived in Cyprus for many years before moving to London and I have always had a good experience every time. The place is lovely as well as lively, the staff very attentive and genuine, and my friends felt extremely welcome – and the food was the best Greek food they have ever had! It was like some we were invited at their house and only giving us the best they had to offer. Thank you for an amazing evening, We'll...
