Lovely fresh and really tasty Greek food, as good as any in Melb. Greek sausage and chicken souvlaki were delicious,prices very reasonable,friendly service. We are here for 2 more nights, will be going back for dinner for both.

We are locals on the beaches, we decided to take our family who were here from the UK on their last night. The menu was ok, the service was ok. I would drive the extra 15 mins and go into one of the greek restaurants in Cairns City. There were no options if you wanted to taste a few different... More

Eaten here many times. Was my favourite Resturant in Palm cove. However, it's now over priced and the portions have shrunk. My meal was really disappointing as was my daughters. Very oily...the service is still good and very friendly. Sad I can't recommend El Greco as I would have 3 years ago.

This is a little treasure trove reminding me of Melbourne but in FNQ. Mid range cost but authentic flavour and recipes. Reminded me of my mate when younger who was a Greek Cypriot, tastes exactly the same. Its a little pricy compared to Melbourne but to find this in Palm Cove was unexpected. Well done guys!

Went for dinner. Service was outstanding from start to finish and the food was to die for. Authentic, quick service, just fantastic. We've been in Palm Cove for 5 days and eaten out every night and this has been the best by far. Highly recommend it.

We had 6 nights in Palm Cove and tried El Greko the first night. Enjoyed the excellent food and friendly family service, so we went back on 2 other occasions. Tried different menu items each time and all were thoroughly enjoyable.

Enjoyed a lovely meal at El Greco in outdoor area. We were disappointed that our waiter did not entertain us with Zorba's dance, he told us to come back for New Year's eve celebrations.

Had a family dinner there and the food and service was excellent with the exception of the open pita souvlaki. This was a real let down as the meat was full of flavor but so tough it was inedible. Can't understand why they would use cheap meat cuts on this when the rest of their food was excellent. Back ground... More
