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

I really enjoyed the place! The food and service is excellent! The location is perfect; it is actually above the sea and gives you the sensation of a love boat! I was lucky to visit the restaurant on Sunday that also had great live international music that I really enjoyed! Especially the woman singer that was really beautiful and cheerful... More

Having visited Elounda last year we found this restaurant to be friendly and with a great atmosphere and location. We had no hesitation in returning to meet the genial Nikos and his friendly staff. We were not disappointed! Meals as good as ever, with the addition this year of the Greek night - fab entertainment and thoroughly enjoyable evening -... More

This was our first lunch in Elounda. The food was only average after a very long wait (the waiter did apologise). Our meal was interrupted by a Charlie Chaplin lookalike wanting money and then a mandolin player. Had this of been our evening meal then fair enough but it was all just a bit too much for a lunchtime. When... More

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here who remember their customers and make the welcome fantastic. Food is very good and followed with gratis honey and cinnamon tea and raki is a bonus. Everyone enjoyed the Greek music and dancing however small a space,. Highly recommend

This is a lovely place for a drink or a meal. Sitting in swinging chairs right by the water, looking at the sunset, with a cold beer, is heavenly. If you like greek music, they have an evening of it every Thursday. We don't. But the food is nice enough, although not outstanding, and the host is incredibly friendly. Free... More
