Elysee Restaurant and Roof Garden Description

Book a table at Elysee Restaurant and Roof Garden

Elysée is more than just a restaurant, it's a concept. Welcome to the Elysée, London's original Greek restaurant. 75 years on from first opening our doors in 1936, the family run Elysée is far 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 700 square foot roof terrace. This, along with live jazz and Greek music and a late license until 3.30am, six days a week allows guests to indulge in a fantastic night out all under one roof. The fusion

of traditional Greek culture with a modern twist.

The Elysée has built its reputation on serving outstanding, traditional Greek cuisine with a contemporary twist. The menu, designed by executive consultant chef Rufus Wickham, formerly of Kettners, effortlessly fuses authentic with modern, culminating in fine dining at its best.

Signature dishes include lobster souvlaki, pot roast quail with pomegranate and oxtail keftedes which, combined with an imaginative mix of more traditional mezedes, make this a culinary delight.

As well as our 150 cover restaurant we also have a private dining room which is ideal for doing business or more exclusive gatherings and parties.

At the Elysée guests are encouraged to drink in the atmosphere but for something stronger we recommend heading upstairs to the cocktail bar. Cool yet classic, the Elysee bar does not belie our roots with its selection of Greek wines and cocktails.

In addition, our extensive bar menu offers something for every connoisseur from a selection of European fine wines to an imaginative cocktail list prepared by Jerome Armit, formerly of the Crazy Bear. The cocktail bar at Elysée is the perfect start, or end, to any night out!

In London's fashionable Fitzrovia, where outside space comes at a premium, we believe our roof garden is the pièce de résistance. The sheer decadence of the 700 square foot garden adds an extra dimension to the Elysée's charm.

With more than a touch of the Mediterranean everywhere else at Elysée, the retractable roof and heated lamps means that even when the weather is distinctly un-Mediterranean the option to dine or drink alfresco is always there!

“We went to the Elysee last night (8th Oct) in a group. The place is great, wonderful food I have never kebabs that tasted so good, the rest of the group all loved their food as well. There is an unbelievable three piece band with a singer that sounded like a cross between Michael Buble and Stevie Wonder. It looked like a different band were going to start when the first band finished but me and my bloke had to catch our train. Just two words of advice, although low lighting is supposed to create an atmosphere it was so dark around the stage that we couldn't see the band only their little music lights so put some lights on. teh second piece if advice is get a reasonable price Cava on the wine list. Great food, service and music so I give them 9.5 out of 10.”

“A remarkable makeover has transformed this once quiet and uninspiring Greek restaurant into one of the West End's most impressive night spots. A resident jazz band plays every night apparently, and when we were there last weekend, we were truly blown away. Everyone, and I mean everyone was dancing, plates were being smashed in true Greek style, and though very much a Greek evening and crowd, it had a feel of Little Italy in Soho - another of my favourites. Only had some small mezze dishes as we were not massively hungry, but all were fresh, tasty and well prepared. Bravo Elysee, 10 out of 10!”

Alex Kaye, London (7 years 1 months 14 days ago)

“Was there with a party of 8 last weekend and we had such a fun night! It was packed - people were dancing on tables, a great live band played Greek (and Arabic?) songs until around 3.30am, some amazing singers, plates smashing around us.. Such a breath of fresh air from the usual overpriced and snooty rubbish you get in the West End. It's apparently re-opened after a massive refurbishment, and I've got to say it's very impressive, even as London standards go. Would very highly recommend the Elysee to all!”
