4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 NEW

We arrived by boat and were helped out by a guy from the restaurant. Very attentive and fast service but not rushed. There were 6 of us and we picked out our own fish which we had with lots of traditional starters. The food was exactly what we'd hoped for, loved the surroundings despite the wasps and is deservedly popular.

Elena is situated in a beautiful setting and access by boat makes it great fun. The waiters were so kind, helped us with the boat with a smile and really couldn't do enough for us. The fish was delicious (I had red snapper which I was shown before I ate) and on the whole everybody enjoyed our meal. What unfortunately... More

No fault found. Un-hurried yet attentive service. Friendly and welcoming. Good menu. Food hot and very enjoyable. Clean and in a unique location. Arrive by boat or car..... but maybe 3 or five miles is a bit of a walk from Nidri. Take your time, relax and enjoy.

We decided to give this place a try after having read the reviews and we were not disappointed. We went the day before just to have a look and asked if we could reserve a table next to the waters edge for the following evening. The staff were all lovely, so polite and attentive. Hubby had the carbonara which he... More

Nice taverna by the sea, but mainly used by people from yachts moored in the bay. Nice food and reasonable prices.we found it a bit busy.

Lovely restaurant by the sea in Geni. It can be reached either by car (there is a parking space) or by boat. The restaurant has a platform that reaches further in in the bay, so you can sit at the bay's edge. When there are bigger waves, you have to mind your feet not to get wet. If you don't... More

You can arrive by road and walk down through the garden gate to the waterfront, or you can come by dinghy from your boat anchored close by. Then you can sit at the waters edge, perhaps watching the sunset over the mountains, and feeding bread to the fishes, to the sound of boat engines, a few local cockerels, a distant... More

Elena is in Geni (a few minutes drive south east from Nidri), the restaurant has a parking place and great view of the bay. You can also reach it by boat. The place is nice and simple with vines above your head. We ordered souvlaki, a greek salad and an eggplant pastry as an appetizer. Since we came a bit... More

A relaxing tavern on the opposite shore to Nidri and located at the water edge, can be accessed via the sea or from the road. It's within cycling distance from the Nidri port. The food is good and well priced.
