We had a good meze here. Service is good and so is the location, and price reasonable enough as well.

Excellent, simple Greek food at a great price. Lovely staff and very friendly service. We went back a few times as we were made to feel so welcome.

We had lunch here one day and went for an evening meal another. I doubt anyone can eat all the food you are served with! We failed to eat all our lunch and failed with the evening meal as well. No-one could possible leave here hungry. The food is excellent as well, which makes you feel sorry not to have... More

We have been here several times over the past few years and never been disappointed by the food or the service and friendliness of the staff, the prices are very good and a great variety of food to choose from. This restaurant is very central and sits a bit back from the harbour.

We had a lovely lovely tuna pizza with a greek salad and home made fries. The pizza was full of tuna and the greek salad was huge. Staff are very nice and make you feel very welcome. They were serving draft mythos which was a plus :-) . Would highly recommend this taverna.

Unlike a lot of the other restaurants, they do not need to call people in off the street and promise them a good meal. This is reliable,friendly and delivers good honest food. It may not be the best location on the front, but we consider it to be the best restaurant..

Very friendly staff to the point of being intrusive but better that than the surly indifference we encountered at Vritomartes (but that's another story!) The starters were really poor.The melon and ham was tasteless with the processed ham slice of reformed meat coming straight out of a supermarket packet. The deep fried calimari were from a catering pack so uniform... More

Been 3 times to Elounda and now 6 times to this taverna. Food always delicious, hot and beautifully presented. The glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice are always refreshing, as is the slices of watermelon given free after the meal. Well recommended x

Both my husband and myself absolutely love this restaurant. The staff are faultless and the food is second to none. We are made to feel like one of the family every time we go there. We have never had a bad meal & this was our 6th time to Elounda & we make sure we eat there as many times... More

We first visited Leonidas on our last trip to Elounda two years ago, and we enjoyed it so much we had to go again this time. Leonidas is well located at the harbour, where there is a lot of competition for customers, so you have to try hard, and Leonidas certainly do. The owners are staff are so welcoming and... More
