Eleos is the best know Greek Restaurant in İstanbul.It deserves the fame associated and tehy are lucky to be appreciated by the clients.In my opinion, 6-7 years ago whne they are not discovered and crowded as much as today, they did better service and attentive offers.Though, still the most principle restaurant in its era.

At the end the chef treats you with their famous home-made... More

In an area full of restaurants, Eleos is characterized by very good raw materials that emphasize the taste of the different dishes. Typical appetizers and very good quality of fish, cooked properly. Nice location and good service

We came at an inappropriate hour (16h) for lunch and had... More

OK food, OK ambiance, OK service. Simply boring. You will not be disappointed with the food, and that's pretty much it.

Went to dinner and felt very rushed to order. No menu given and the waiter kept on pushing us. We finally asked for Seabass, Squid, 2 glasses of wine and a salad. The waiter brought two other things on the house. The bill came to 250TRY which is not bad... Overall the food and location was good. Not amazing but... More

You wouldn't know this restaurant existed considering the entrance from the busy street below. Once we got through the doors of the resaurant it was an awe factor view....decor, sea view. The staff were great, food is beyond yummy and the view was unbelievable. Try the grilled seabass.
