The Elia Greek restaurant is located in Glasgow’s George Square. I had lunch there with our son Simon. The two course set menu cost £7 per person.
Bread and olives were brought to our table.
For starter, I had Taramasalata (cod roe dip).
Simon had Dolmades (vine leaves stuffed with rice and minced meat). which were very good.
My main course was Moussaka. I was a bit surprised that I was offered either chips or rice with the Moussaka, as the dish already contains a potato layer. I assume that this is to keep costs down on the set lunch. My Moussaka was tasty, but rather heavy on the cheese sauce topping and light on meat and aubergine.
Simon’s main course was Chicken Souvalaki. The chicken was tender,
The staff all seemed to be Greek and service was good.
For £7 a head for a two course lunch in central Glasgow, the Elia Greek restaurant offers value for money. Personally, I’d rather pay a bit more to have a more meaty main course without chips.
