Our friends took us to this lovely Greek Taverna by dinghy. We were moored in Nidri, so it was about a 20 minute trip across the bay. The position is just perfect, right next to the water edge, in the distance, the backdrop is of mountains. The restaurant staff came and greeted us and tied the dinghy up for us.... More

Elena is located on the waterfront at Geni across the bay from Nidri. We found it when exploring on a quad bike, but it is used by moored sailors and a nice place for lunch if you have hired a motor boat from Nidri for the day. Easy mooring for small boats. We ate around 12 noon and were on... More

We stopped here whilst sailing around the area, only for drinks this time. Friendly service in a lovely location, we spoke to other sailors on the plane and they highly recommended the food, so hopefully next time we will give it a try.

The owner recognised us from our visit two years ago and five years ago and nothing was too much trouble. You can arrive in a boat and as you approach from the jetty, you know you are in caring, capable hands to steer you in - or arrive by road and there is an equally welcoming greeting. The food is...

With such a stunning setting, we were really looking forward to our meal at Elena's. Service was a bit off-hand and unfortunately our somewhat expensive grouper steaks were tasty but overcooked and dry. Disappointing.

Second night of the flotilla holiday - we anchored out in the bay and dinghy'd over to Elena for dinner and breakfast. The welcome was fantastic. The food and drink (particularly the fresh banana juice) were great too. We enjoyed the ambiance/setting so much we returned on our penultimate night of the holiday along with most of the flotilla.

Although we did not eat at Elenas we went for a drink when we hired out a boat. We were made to feel really welcome and sat on the waters edge watching the boats in the harbour and we were given free nibbles including feta, cucumber, tomatoes and anchovies. Had we had found it sooner we would have most certainly... More
