Food was fresh and authentic. The atmosphere needs a little updating, but plastic tables and chairs aside the food did not disappoint.

Had the yummiest Greek dinner outside of Greece. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly service with fresh tasty food and traditional music playing in the background.

We had dips to start and share and I had beef rissoles which were really nice and my wife had lamb kebabs which she raved about. Nice outdoor terrace, bit off the strip and up down stairs. Waitresses were very attentive and a lovely meal

Visited here for dinner during our trip to Palm Cove. We both had the mixed grill and dolmades and the food was absolutely fantastic. The only thing I would've changed is to add a lamb stick to the mixed grill. Cocktails were delicious and they were very friendly and accommodating towards our 20 month old. Would absolutely visit here again... More

My family have been coming to Palm Cove for years, and I have seen El Greco many times but have never ventured. Well during our trip in January decided to give it a shot and am so glad we did. Awesome atmosphere, great service and beautiful Greek food. Just loved it and can not wait to go back :))

El Greco accomodated a group of 15 of us easily. We shared the banquet which meant there was plenty of food for everyone. Would definitely eat at El Greco again

We ate here twice including New Year's Eve which was a very special event with a wide range of Greek food, BBQ and buffet . . and Greek dancers. As with most places in Australia, food is of a good quality and freshly cooked. You order, then wait but it is worth it! The owner is Greek and his wife... More

If you like Greek food this restaurant will not disappoint. Without being exceptional it does all of the traditional Greek menu items quite well. They also have their own locally brewed craft beer which is pretty good.
