Great service great food

This is our third visit to elounda, and this place gets better every time. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. The food is great as a family we hav'nt had a bad meal from pasta to pizzas to gyros you wont be dissapointed, and the prices are very reasonable.

Stopped here for some lunch while exploring the island by jeep. Lovely views across the water. The staff were lovely, welcoming and attentive. My wife had tuna salad which tasted even better than it looked. I had the special omelette which was also lovely. Overall a highly recommended place to stop and eat while watching the world go by.

Discovered this place later on in your holiday so didn't get to go back. Fabulous place, excellent food and service. We especially liked our waitress (think she was French but spoke excellent English). A really lovely, friendly lady - an asset to the restaurant.

Ate there twice and had an excellent meal delivered through excellent service on both occasions. Nice atmosphere and well prepared food from a good menu range. Recommend their Greek pork chop in wine - delicious and as everywhere in Elounda, generous portions

We visited Leonidas several times during our stay in Elounda. The food was fantastic, tasted so fresh! Good sized portions and at a good price. Try the tzatziki! Gorgeous! The service was fantastic and created a lovely welcoming atmosphere! Will be back again for sure! Yamas!

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
