We visited this restaurant for dinner last Saturday, having looked at the menu while in for a drink at lunchtime a few days earlier. The restaurant was busy, but certainly not full. We eventually had our order taken and, about 30 minutes after we had arrived, the wine was brought - unfortunately, not what we had ordered. The correct wine... More

Friendly service, good food and portion sizes, good value for money. The only problem when trying to get the bill - you get ice-cream, try again - melon - try again, liqueur or more wine - on the house - and eventually you get the bill! Not too much of a problem!! The boss, Nikos, is excellent front of house,... More

On a hot day this is the perfect spot for lunch, a cool breeze comes off the water. The tables are all next to the sea and the water laps on the cobbles as you contemplate what to have for lunch. We had fresh orange juice, which was very refreshing and to eat the meatballs which were very nasty. Your... More

It doesn't often happen like this - perfect morning, perfect walk, then happen to find perfect taverna for the meze we were craving! We sat gazing at the view of sea, Spinalonga and mountains whilst our food was prepared - you're so close to the sea, you're practically in it - then tucked into a delicious meze and Cretan salad...

Although we were staying in Elounda in an all inclusive hotel we could not resist plenty of visits to this restaurant. Aside from the lovely food, which in an expensive resort was very reasonable, the welcome we always received was lovely. The boss man takes a great pride in repeat custom and always keeps a close eye that all his... More

We visited this restaurant many times during our stay, just the two of us and also with friends. Each meal was a success, plenty of it, beautifully presented and really tasty. The bouzouki evening was great fun with music, singing, dancing and smashing of plates. A must I think.
