If you want an English breakfast surrounded by other English people with high cholesterol counts at English prices, this is for you (and it's a good version of this) but why come to Crete to get it?

As a family we visit here a lot when we come to Elounda. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and just wants you to be happy. Can get very busy so you may have a wait to order drinks sometimes although all the times we have been this has happened only once. We just come for the after dinner... More

You must try this place for food. Its a lovely restaurant and the staff are so friendly. Its got air conditioning, large screen tvs and excellent Wi-fi. The food is second to none, in fact whenever we were in town we would pop into this place. Would highly recommend.

We went to Babel for lunch and even though my partner enjoyed his chicken club sandwich, I was disappointed with my vegetarian burger. The contents of the burger were not as described on the menu. The food is cheap enough and the restaurant is well air conditioned.

Checked on trip advisor and fullfilled expectations. We were with kids and need some eatable food :-) they have great soup! The rest - creps, shrimps, octopus... All was good!

Have been returning to Elounda for a number of years now and always call with Nectarius who runs a wonderful bar in centre of Elounda opposite the harbour.
