Nice place to watch the world go by and serves nice coffee. Even though the owner had his hand in plaster he still ran round serving customers and chatting

Good lunchtime meal of burger and chips followed by crepes. Attentive staff and a good view, through the parked cars, of the harbour.

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

We often stoped by Babel's for a spot of lunch and a refreshing drink, you can get the best Dakos and Gyros in there, you can sit in the sun or if it is too hot then go inside in the cool, and just relax and watch Elounda bustle in front of you. Nectaris is a very friendly man and... More
