Great for traditional greek food

We stopped off for Lunch here and it was really good, considering I have a part greek husband finding good greek food is difficult as it's never as good as he is used to. They kindly offered to put our water bottles in the fridge. We enjoyed the meze and the staff were very good.

This was the restaurant we chose to visit the most during our two week stay in Elounda. The food was always beautifully fresh and authentic. The different generations of the family running Vachus always made us feel welcome and valued. At lunchtime it provides a calm respite from the beach and in the evening has a vibrant buzz. Good house... More

Very attentive and friendly waiters. Cannot fault the food. We ate everything they put in front of us. The kleftico was delicious. Try the sole in a mediteranean sauce.
