Description: Spanning the reigns of three monarchs and 80 years from first opening the doors, the family-run Elysee is more than just somewhere to have dinner. While great food is still at the heart of our ethos, an impressive refurbishment has seen the addition of a stylish cocktail bar, sumptuous private dining area and 1200 square foot roof garden. This, along with live Greek music and entertainment along with a late license until 3:30am, seven days a week, allows guests to indulge in a fantastic night out all under one roof. The fusion of traditional Greek culture with the modern twists inspired by owners the Karageorgis family ensures Elysee is as fun, different and authentic an experience as London has to offer. "Many places in London are hard to get in to...Elysee is hard to leave."

I have selected this restaurant to celebrate my birthday when visiting London because of the live music and the Greek food (in the part of France where we live there aren't Greek Restaurants...hint....hint).
Although it wasn't very crowded, the atmosphere was there immediately. The band and the 2 singers, the lovely lady and the nice man, were of top class and they played non stop. The interaction with the dining guests was pleasant and the plates throwing hilarious.
The food was very good; we have chosen for the 2 course mezes meal.
The complimentary ice cream for me and the 'happy birthday' singing in Greek was very nice.

This restaurant was suggested to me as I had heard good things about it. We had a private room upstairs for cocktails and games and then downstairs for dinner. There was entertainment consisting of belly dancing and singing, with the bonus of plate smashing, which was so much fun! We all had a great time and the food was Greek and very reasonably priced, considering it was in central London. They also have a roof garden and bar upstairs for guests to party. Would definitely come again. Nice venue in a good location.

We visited on the recommendation of a friend and we had a great time. The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was full. The live entertainment was not stop for the 4 hours we were there, and there is the traditional plate breaking as well. Overall a fun and lively restaurant and we too shall be recommending the Elysee to friends as we had a great time.
