Lovely Place

Great place for food and drink. Breakfast is good and in the nights the seats face the harbour. In the back you have a bank of computers and a pool table and table football. Great service from the staff and reasonably priced.

My husband and I have been coming to stay in Elounda for the past 8 years, and this is our favourite bar. Before we go for dinner each evening, we call into Babels for our drinks, the staff are brilliant, Nectario, Yianis and Cholie, always have a friendly welcome for everyone. The bar is in a perfect spot to enjoy... More

Popped into Babel's a couple of times for initially a refreshing drink and a seat to watch the ' World go by!' Excellent service and as the drinks slipped down a treat little snacks added to ambience. Great little place and although we only had a toastie on one occasion other diners food looked very appetizing. Would recommend.

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.
