My wife and I visit Elounda each year and we always come back to Babel. We visited this bar most days over the past 2 weeks and is by far the friendliest pub/bar in the area with the most brilliant staff. They have many tv's showing a whole range of sports. The food is excellent and well priced with a... More

Nice atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good and the atmosphere friendly and laid back. Nice place to relax and chill. The prices aren't bad either.

Visited originally for drinks but returned for lunch. Very warm welcome from the owner who remembered us from our first visit. Recommended if looking for a chilled out place in Elounda.

We went to this bar to watch football and the owner couldn't have been more friendly and inviting. Nothing was too much trouble for him and his staff. We ate here a couple of times only snack food but it was lovely. If you are like us and like football, good beer,good food and good company to watch it go... More

From arrival, we felt comfortable. The owner was welcoming and friendly. Our repeat visit was even better. My wife was waiting for me outside. He insisted she sat down whilst she waited. No pressure to buy.
