They don't hassle you to go in and eat or drink, he just says enjoy your holiday. That's what wants me... More

There are many good restaurants in Elounda, but we were drawn back to Katafygio 3 times in our weeks holiday. It offers the widest selection of Greek dishes in the town and all the ones we four sampled were delicious and with such generous portions. My favourite was Giovetsi..lots of melt in the mouth beef cooked with tomatoes cinnamon and... More

We found this wonderful restaurant on our second night in Elounda and went every night. Idyllic surroundings, lovely friendly staff and superb food. Do not miss the Greek night on Thursday. Singing, dancing plate smashing. Enormous fun Highly recommended.

The staff - excellent service and the food was excellent! Complimentary breads, dips, wine, dessert accompanied the lovely food. We came here throughout our 2 weeks... More

Good food here which didn't break the bank. Very attentive service. Ordered kleftico x2 and veal in tomato sauce. We had a seat close to the water and later moved to softer seats to enjoy the good live music which started off Greek style and then moved through a good selection of popular songs. A most enjoyable evening and would... More
