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.

We came here and had the set menu which was unbelievable value! €12 each for a starter, main and desert with local wine! The portions were sizeable and the food was excellent! The owner was a lovely chatty guy who took pride in his food using his family recipes! This place doubles up as a bar, restaurant, club and playground... More

A family run Taverna on the waterfront at the southern end of the line of restaurants in Elounda. Made very welcome. Drank "father's" red wine. Stuffed vine leaves for starters then my wife had lamb chops while I had Beke Meze. It consisted of various meats: beef, pork and chicken in a mildly spicy sauce. Very good. Followes by a... More

We were made most welcome here and enjoyed lovely food at reasonable prices. Nikos is very warm and friendly and makes sure all guests are relaxed and comfortable - as we were eating lunch, others were ordering Greek breakfasts or just drinks, and nobody was turned away on the basis that they needed to eat a full meal. Food is... More

First taverna visited this trip, as close to our apartments. The boss welcomed us warmly and showed us to a table on the outside covered area, projecting into the sea. Calamari starter - very good and large portion; moussaka lacking aubergine and little meat and with very thick and solid cheese sauce layer on top; lamb kleftiko very good and... More

No holiday in Elounda would be complete without eating at Katafygio. The owner Nikos is such a lovely man and he and his staff will always give you a warm welcome, and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. We love Elounda, but dining at this restaurant made our holiday even better. Kate and Terry
