    I've eaten at Elysium a few times now and have always quite enjoyed it. I've even written a number of complimentary reviews on the restaraunt and recommended it to friends and family, but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with our meal there last night.

    The $30 steak was nothing more than pub standard steak and chips (in fact my brother in law had paid just $7.95 for something very similar if not better earlier that day from the Pagewood pub). It was pretty disappointing, just a piece of steak and a mass of chips, no salad, no veg and no garnish. We went here especially for the steak as we'd had it before and it was amazing and it came with a delicious sauce and was always well presented - but not this time. It was a flavourless and boring dish.

    The fettuccine marinara consisted of pasta and fish, no other seafood like octopus, squid, or prawns like you would normally expect and it was way too salty so couldn't be finished.

    Having said all this, my brother in law, who ordered one of the wood fire pizzas said it was the best pizza he had ever tasted - so that's a plus. Perhaps the pizzas are the way to go here. The service was pretty good too, and I can't fault the ambience.

    All in all though, I think standards have slipped a little at Elysium. Perhaps they are trying to cut costs somewhere. It certainly wasn't worth $215. Truth be told I'm not sure now if I would actually return. Particularly as there are numerous other fantastic restaurants at the spot within metres from Elysium.

    Delicious woodfired pizza's, one of the best in the eastern suburbs - definitely the best in the spot. Nice starters as well. BYO but they also have a good selection of beers and wines. Friendly staff, especially the girl that is on nearly every night and never stops smiling no matter how busy she is. Always leave Elysium feeling satisfied and go back every few weeks.

    Been going here for nearly 5 years and have yet to have bad food or service. Along with Pizza e birra, this place serves the best wooden fired pizzas in Sydney only bettered in Naples.

    When we first arrived we waited quite some time to be acknowledged, eventually the chef popped his head out of the kitchen and told us to take a seat wherever we liked.

    Once we were seen to by a waiter my impression of the place started to change. We ordered 2 vegetarian mains (pumpkin pastry type dish and pasta). Both were enjoyable. The dessert (Bombalaska) was absolutely delicious. Overall a nice dining experience but wouldn't rush back.

    We had perfectly cooked, good quality steaks and gorgeous pork belly, couldn't fault either dish. Also the fat fries served with the steak were amazing! It wasn't as cheap as some of the other restaurants at the Spot but the food was miles better, worth the extra money! We ate here about 6 months ago and didn't enjoy the food as much. But now wouldn't hesitate recommending it. Plus they have just added a kiddie's corner for children to play in, it's pretty basic at the moment but it did the job for our girls (4 and 2.5 years).

    Been a few times here. As with all restaurants, it can vary on waiting times for food and quality of service from staff. I think this restaurant is excellent and I will accept that it's not always the same each time I go and I still recommend it to friends or colleagues or anyone dining in the spot.

    We wanted something light, before the cinema, so ordered the antipasto platter. This was excellent, and excellent value. A few slices of just grilled chorizo, a generous amount of finely sliced cured meat, some cheese, small dishes of capsicum and olives, best of all, sufficient warm bread. We ordered two glasses of well priced red wine. The only disappointment was the lacklustre coffee.

    I was so disappointed to have wasted a rare night out at Elysium. I was so looking forward to it as I enjoyed the food at the old venue and it looks great. We ordered shared dips with turkish bread the dips were tiny (the waitress said one portion was enough for 3 people) half of the bread was ok and half was completely dried up and flat.

    For main 4 of us ordered the scotch steak which was so thin. The roast potatoes were tasteless and boring. The service was slow and un-enthusiastic. The waitress was friendly, just didn't seem to know much about the menu. I think the meals were totally overpriced, for the quality. I definitely will not be back as I think the quality of eateries is really good in the spot and would go elsewhere.

    We have just visited Elysium in their new spot, er, at The Spot. It's not as intimate as the old location, but the food was still really nice, service friendly (not always prompt but fine), good wine list and I would still recommend it for a nice night out. We'll be back.
