Lovely meals and service here. We had several meals here and they were all really nice. The beef stamnas was excellent. We drank the local rose wine which was not expensive and was really nice. They always made us feel really welcome.

My Wife and I have eaten here several times over the years. This year we ate there twice and had excellent food on both occasions. The service was attentive and prompt and the owner (Harris) was very welcoming, he also remembered our visits from previous years, what a great memory he has :-)

A pleasant plate of mixed fish including bream, shrimps, squid, small fish and octopus. Waiter Harry very attentive and pleasant. Sitting over the water on a hot day for lunch was a cool interlude. Quite expensive but this seemed to be the going rate.

My partner and I came to Elounda village for an evening meal and found this little gem of a restaurant on the sea front. Food was amazing with plenty of it and the service was second to none. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we even got desert for free, which we were not expecting (Chocolate cakes along... More

We visited here in the evening and sat out on the floating pontoon (it does move about quit a bit so if your prone to sea sickness I'd suggest a landside table!!) 3 of us had fish and I thought it was a little on the expensive side but was very good. A lot of the restaurants in elounda love... More

Poor quality food and presentation, cold rice (which should have been hot !!!). When we complained the response was ' I will speak to the chef '. Very poor service.

We had a great lunch at this place. The staff was friendly and kind. We enjoy our meal and I promised the guys there that I will recommend this restaurant, so here I am doing what I promised. Luis Rosenthal Israel

Ate here twice. The fish is on par with similar seaside restaurants, but traditional Greek dishes are very competitive. Friendly atmosphere and we were always well looked after - possibly because we frequented the Del Mar snack bar so much, which is run by the same family. Would definitely recommend it.
