This seafront restaurant gives fantastic service, value for money and a friendly atmosphere. The food is lovely especially the fish. The owners can't do enough for you. Well worth a visit or maybe several if you are in Elounda.

An all round super place to eat and pass the evening. Comfortable, unhurried with excellent food and wine. Most agreeable hosts/owners with always time for a greeting, even when busy. A must if in the area. Looking forward to future visits.

We went to the no. 2 and no. 3 restaurants in Elounda before this one and were really disappointed in the quality of the food for the money. Owner very nice but we liked the other restaurants better.

Attentive owner who serves great food cooked to perfection. Don't expect English food this is still a Greek restaurant serving traditional meals. The owner and his fiancé really listen to their customers so you are served exactly what you want.

Having returned again to this great restaurant in September it remains my favourite place to eat. The sea bass was amazing and the steak was as easy to cut as butter. Finishing with a white chocolate baileys cheesecake we were in foodie heaven. Everything is so fresh and cooked to perfection.. The service, food and views here are unrivalled .... More

From the outside this taverna looks decidedly average but the food and service is first class. Well worth a visit. On the expensive side though.

Fabulous restaurant, i would recommend going out of your way to eat here if you are in the area. My girlfriend and i went here two nights in a row as we loved it so much.

Having previously enjoyed a meal here a couple of years ago we decided to take my mother in law for her birthday during our recent holiday. I booked via the website and explained it was a celebration. Daniel e-mailed back shortly afterward confirming the booking and advising we should leave the birthday bit to him!
