Have just returned from a holiday in Elounda and unfortunately only discovered this restaurant a couple of days before the end of our holiday. We had a great evening here on Sunday when a singer and pianist entertained during dinner. The atmosphere is romantic and the service was exceptionally good, the waiter was attentive. Our table was situated on a... More

Decided to have lunch here after being promised fresh, home made food in a family restaurant.....BIG MISTAKE!! The Moussaka was unrecognisable as a Moussaka, was definately not fresh and had obviously been reheated from frozen. The Stifado was not much better. The food was awful and we were especially disappointed after the great reviews we read on TripAdvisor. Walk on... More

One of our group really took a liking to this place so we visited a couple of times (in the evening and at lunch time). The food was really nice although not outstanding. The decor is a quite worn and could do with an overhaul to make it look more appealing. On the first visit we didn't think we were... More

When you next find yourself in Elounda, Crete eat here. One of the most enjoyable dinning experiences. This was due to the skills of the chief and exceptional service.

What a beautiful setting, the food was fabulous, we ate in this restaurant 5 times on our holiday to Crete and every meal was fantastic, the staff were so friendly and they were wonderful with our children. We would definitely go back to this restaurant.

Wonderful views of the ocean, watch out for the water spout at the end of the pier, just don't sit right at the end of you are afraid of the occasional splash. Didn't bother me butI thought I'd mention it. Get the pasta its great!

It was two years since we last visited Elounda but Nicos and his staff greeted us like old friends who had never left. We had drinks at Katafygio every night and ate there several times. Each time the food was lovely and the staff were friendly and hard working. The location is great and you can watch the fish in... More

We walked past this place a few times only due to the fact that they display photos of the food and this had put us off. However, we went there for their Greek night (great fun with 3 really good musicians - just watch out for the owner's love of fire as he often would produce a pan of flames... More
