Elia Greek Restaurant

The Majestic Hotel Dubai's famous Elia restaurant may be all Greek to its diners, but if you thought you knew your Hellenic cuisine, think again! Alongside staples like moussaka, you'll find a modern take on cooking from across gorgeous Greece, thanks to celebrity chef Yiannis Baxevanis.

Eat at Elia for an authentic Greek dining experience in a cosy setting in Dubai’s famous Majestic Hotel Dubai, a four star venue with stunning views of the city state’s iconic skyline and the Burj Khalifa, right at the heart of all that Dubai has to offer.

Celebrity chef Yiannis Baxevanis, who enjoys a reputation back home that is nothing short of legendary, has been called the “aroma magician” because of his ability to use flowers and herbs in his meals with great creativity. What he has done at Elia is to combine traditional favourites like chicken souvlaki and moussaka with a fresh, contemporary spin on Greek cooking, so that diners experience something truly different.

So, for example, while you can still enjoy staples like fried halloumi cheese, at Elia it comes with a fig, ginger and crushed black pepper sauce. Other delicacies include dishes such as beef meatballs, served with a salad of black-eyed beans, and infused with roasted red capsicums from Florina and finished with a delectable yoghurt sauce. Or perhaps you’d prefer an exquisite sea bass fillet, seasoned with wild herbs and resting on a bed of dreamy risotto, all topped off with a gorgeous egg-lemon sauce?

Whatever you choose, you can look forward to mouth-watering, fresh ingredients conjured into inventive dishes by Chef Baxevanis and his amazing team at Elia, headed up by Chef Ilias. Everyone in the restaurant is determined to give diners authentic Hellenic cookery with a twist, and to put Greek food where it belongs on the worldwide culinary map.

As Baxevanis says himself: “There’s more to Greek cuisine than moussaka and souvlaki. Times change and we must build fresh traditions for new generations. To me, local cuisine is made up of food that people cook in their home towns, based on the products they have access to at their fingertips”.

Baxevanis has won a number of awards for his work, and for Elia alone he has scooped Highly Commended honours in the prestigious Time Out Dubai Restaurant Award in both 2013 and 2015.

Elia is open every evening in the Majestic Hotel between 7pm and midnight. Make your booking and experience Hellenic dining in a new light.
