Situated opposite the town beach in Elounda. The staff all related from 2 families are all very friendly and accommodating. We visited twice the food both times was excellent, it is really worth a good 4 1/2 rating. The same chef has been working at the restaurant since its opening bar a short period. I tried the Mousaka the second... More

This was our 3rd year in a row at Elounda and we always visit this family friendly Taverna which is located just opposite the municipal beach.We always have the meat balls in tomato in garlic sauce the best in Elounda with a Greek salad and try their tasty fried octopus.

Set slightly away from the main harbour this taverna is worth a visit. Lovely ambience, pleasant staff, traditional food, decent house wine and good value. Less touristy than some of the other restaurants in Elounda and recommended by the locals themselves which is always a good sign. Give it a go if you are visiting here.
