Why is this not in the top five??

Amazing setting, beautiful food and friendly service. What more could you ask for on your first night? Beef studs do and lamb kleftico both cooked to perfection. Ocean lapping next to your table, lovely red wine to wash it down. Paradise in the making. Give this place a go, you won't be disappointed

We came here frequently during our holiday, some times for just a drink, lunch or dinner. We were made to feel very welcome. The view was incredible, as well as the decor, the music and general atmosphere of the place. The staff were amiable and generous, and really were the icing on the cake. The food came in huge portions... More

Ate here on our final night in Elounda. The menu is extensive and plenty of choice for all. E The seating leads out into the sea and gives a lovely view across to the islands and spinlonga. We sat outside right on the waters edge and the wind did its best to disrupt our evening got a bit windy to... More

Very friendly, and super traditional Greek food. We created a meze from the starters which provided a very filling meal. Finished off with complementary melon and chocolate desert. The seating extends out over the sea, so if you are able to get a seat overlooking the water, when the underwater lighting is turned on you get to see lots of... More

Very large menu with great seafood choices. If you are hungry and there are two of you go for the full fish platter including lobster. Very good. Otherwise vase choice of starters and main courses. Wine by the carafe is fine. Bottled wine is quite expensive but what is on the list is good. This is not unusual for most... More

The seafood platter is beautifully fresh, has loads of variety including lobster and although sold as for two was easily enough for us as a couple and our teenage son. The owner encouraged us to share it for three with the addition of a Greek salad and some chips. It was Devine.

Wonderful views of the mountains and sea, we were sat right at the front by the water, you're so close to the sea you can touch it! The owner was fantastic throughout (bald chap), he was very attentive (but not overly attentive) and he had a real passion for his food. He was genuinely interested in our opinion of his... More

While the food here was excellent and the service is very difficult to fault I did find the bill at the end of the night came as somewhat of a surprise. The bill was roughly 30% higher than indicated by the menus, so if you a dessert is brought to your table or you are offered some Raki double check... More
