Great Greek restaurant

If you look for Greek food in Elounda this is the first address. The food is very good and the stuff is very friendly. From the restaurant you have a lovely view on the habour. We enjoyed our dinner there.

During our week holiday we ate here 3 times. We were greeted by a friendly waitress, Laurence. She is such a friendly woman, not to mention hilariously funny. We instantly felt welcome and valued as customers. It was a huge source of amusement that my T-shirt was the same colour as their tablecloths!! (vivid green) We had several different dishes... More

Taverna Leonidas is a lovely taverna. The decor is nice and fresh, the staff are wonderful and very attentive, despite being run off their feet and the food is good.

So many of the places looked like real tourist spots, many sporting neon signs offering pizza and spaghetti. We kept walking in the direction of the beach and thought this taverna,... More

We hadn't eaten in this restaurant for a few years for no reason other than we hadn't got round to it. We have been missing a comfortable restaurant with good food and lovely staff. They catered for 10 of us happily, even though we hadn't booked. We definitely won't leave it so long before we re-visit!
