Beautiful sunset, low quality food, service is resigned, garden is astonishing.

Restaurant's atmosphere is nice. Big garden full of cactuses and many of them shaped :) really cute! Parking lot is very limited. Panorama is beautiful, sunset is amazing from here. Service is resigned and blase. Food quality is low but eatable.

We were staying here at the Elafonisi Village. Pavos is a great host and the food was good as well. The pork dish is huge so make sure you are hungry before ordering. The view from this restaurant is spectacular and is a lovely location for both breakfast and watching the sun set at thendof the day.

This restaurant is just a short climb from the best beach in the world. So, it is convenient and for the views it's worth going. We spent €54 for two adults and two children. This was an average meal but not bad.

The view is very good, but the food was very poor. We had 3 different dishes and all were bad. The worst was the marinated octopus.

We don't recommend this restaurant... Our waitress seemed very bored to take our orders etc, and we did not feel welcome at all (for the first time in Crete). She also forgot part of our orders so we had to ask her twice for drinks. The food was average and relatively expensive. You are better off having dinner at the... More

We went there just for the morning coffee: expresso ok but rather lukeworm; americano coffee really bad. Cleanliness at the limit (the low one!): this ws the main reason for not trying to eat there.Wifi very poor but it is usual such in Greece.The real asset of this taverna is its proximity of Elafonisi beach. Negative point: they do not... More

We stayed two nights at the room #6 and is very simple and essential. The staff is not friendly and incapable, I think they only profit of the great location: that is the only reason to stop there. Note that next to this place there is a better accommodation also having a very good restaurant :)

We visited this taverna when we visited Elafonissi beach. It's right by the car park and is well worth a visit if you haven't brought a picnic. The food is simple; mainly Greek, but a few international dishes like club sandwiches and pizzas. The white wine we had was very cold and just right for a hot day. The price... More

We got offered a grilled daurade that was not on the menu but we did the mistake not to ask the price. They took advantage of that and charged us 18euro for an average daurade. That is double to what we were expecting. Very bad surprise. Go away!
