About Our Name
Philoxenia means ''Hospitality''
We offer many more appetizers than you would normally find on a menu. On the island of Crete friends will gather at an Estiatorio or Taverna and enjoy long evenings of shared appetizers, wine and conversation... lingering over the freshness. We invite you to embrace this amicable custom while we hand make each dish to order.
We believe that great food can only come from great ingredients. Whenever available, we serve fresh organic vegetables. All the meat we serve is raised respectfully without hormones: Oregon Painted Hills beef, Carlton pork, Draper Valley free range chickens and new Zealand lambs. The olive oil we use is a very fine, first pressing from the island of Crete.
Eleni's Philoxenia accepts limited online reservations. Please call us if you do not see the time you wish to dine. We will do our best to accommodate your party.
