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.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we made a bee line to Vachus on our first night. Traditional starters were fine, but the main courses were disappointing. The sauces were a bit thick and salty. Didn't go back.

We were often in Rudi's bar next door & decided to go for a meal. Not the best meal we have eaten in Elounda but still very good

We visited lots of restaurants in Elounda but this was our favourite and we re-visited it many times during our 2-weeks stay. Fabulous and friendly service from a family run establishment. Very varied menu and everything I ate with amazing with very efficient service. Couldn't recommend this place more!

Superb tasty, well cooked food. Lots of choice on the menu. Fast service. Staff are friendly and charming. One reason I didn't give this five stars? - the most uncomfortable chairs I've ever sat in. Wooden chairs that dug into the back of your legs. I honestly couldn't wait to leave because of this. Get some cushions guys - we'd... More

We ate here twice and it was without doubt an excellent experience on both occasions. The food is extremely well prepared and nicely presented. Their "Chicken Vachus " is very tasty and a real treat. The beef stifado was very well prepared and the best that we had in town. Genuinely warm welcome from this family taverna. I highly recommend... More
