Located right by the harbour, you can sit and watch the world go by. They play great music and the seats are very comfortable. Lovely clean toilets. Food served during the day but by night its drinks mainly.

Been visiting Babel for many years on my trip to Crete. The staff are warm, welcoming and always smiling. The seating is set to look out onto a traditional fishing boat harbour. Nice relaxing atmosphere for a drink at the end of the evening.

Had many lovely evenings in Babel. The cocktails are always delicious and very reasonably priced. My fiancé and enjoyed a few games of pool in the evenings too which is always fun. Great view from the front of the bar where you can sit and relax for hours.

We have visited a number of times in this holiday and have been warmly greeted every time. Nectario has been attentive and displayed superb customer service skills. Prices are very reasonable. We had a lovely breakfast of poached eggs on our final morning and nothing was too much for him and his staff. If you get the chance do visit.... More

Sitting here now with a very cold beer and very warm hospitality - there simply is no friendlier bar in the whole of Elounda. The staff are warm and welcoming and greet you like old friends. It's a great place for breakfast too.... The crepes with fresh fruit are superb. Call in..... You'll be calling back.

As a tee-totaller I like to try non-alcoholic cocktails of which Babel had a handful on their menu. I firstly tried the Cinderella which was nice but nothing special, then I tried the Green Peace which I thought was lovely (kiwi... More
