The portions are large & it's great value for money (one of the cheapest places we ate) the staff are so friendly and welcoming and couldn't... More

Both me and my husband have been to this restaurant twice in Summer 2014. Amazing location, amazing Greek food. Huge size portions. And unbelievable stunning views to Elounda bay. Amazing experience overall... Nikos is an amazing host and Alex, one of the waiters, was very helpful in trying to find an ATM in Elounda for us to get some cash... More

We visited Katafygio several times and enjoyed it every time. The service was friendly and the food good. Like many other restaurants in Elounda the dining area is on a platform sticking out into the sea so the views are lovely. Free cups of cinnamon tea are delicious.

I really want to be fair to this restaurant as the guy who owns it works so hard and is extremely welcoming and anxious to ensure that you have a good time. The first time that we ate here we had Kleftico and Beef Stifado. Both were ok and tasty but there are better elsewhere in town. The second was... More

Went a few times during our stay, never disappointed, food is plentiful and delicious no matter what you order, service is prompt and friendly, there was a Greek night one night, sadly I was unwell (nothing to do with the food I hasten to add) so had to leave early but it looked like it would have been great fun....

The owner - Nico - always greets patrons and the waiting staff of Alex, Tanya and Tony are always helpful and remember what their regulars like. We have never failed to enjoy their food and drink and the entertainment is good - especially Greek nights!! Even the turtle swims by to keep guests amused! Thoroughly recommended.
