I love this bar, the owners are so friendly and cant do enough for you, the atmosphere is friendly but chilled and its a great place to watch football. Daytime food is good especially with young children.

We waited 35 mins for a bacon roll and a BLT - really shouldn't have bothered !! The BLT consisted of 2 x bread toasted - no butter or Mayo, half a lettuce leaf, one slice of tomato and one rasher of bacon - I'm serious !! Other folk had things that looked better I'd look elsewhere

This was a welcome stop after walking into the village of Elounda from our hotel. We were made most welcome with a bright smile and efficient service, bathrooms were clean and tidy - glasses were also clean and smudge free! a nice spot to sit and watch the world go by!

Return visit to Babel's after a couple of years and he remembered us! Wonderful host, value for money and good food. Cocktails at night make this a real treasure and a cool place to hang out.

Great place, always made to feel welcome. Was keen to watch my team play while I was there, unfortunately game wasn't been shown on TV, however one of owners found a stream for it and lent me his laptop so could watch

this was a great place to grab a drink and watch the footy, the staff were friendly and accomodating, prices were good and the atmospgere was great. We did grab a burger here one day but it had too many herbs in for my liking, but i like plain and simple. Would definately reccomend.
