“Very friendly, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

First place we ate at after arriving, warm welcome with lovely food, we had the mezze as we were dining later at the hotel, we were given a complimentary dessert and the wine was excellent value for money. It was early in the season so not sure if this is representative of their normal standards but we can only rate it as we found it. Perfect place to enjoy a drink and watch the world go by.

“Great value, great location, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Two years running I would vote this restaurant the best one to visit when staying in Elounda. Food is excellent, staff friendly, lovely location on the sea, and incredibly good value. last year went with family and all agreed this was their favorite while on holiday.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Ate here three times during my stay in Elounda and was happy with the food and all the complimentary bits but my experience there was spoilt by smoke from other diners. I suggested to the owner that it may be useful to have a designated smoking area but he just shrugged his shoulders and said, "That's Greece!" Such a pity.

“Great location, poor service, mundane food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

The title says it all really - this place is in the prime position in Elounda harbour, it looks very romantic but that was the best bit. The service was not good, the food was very mediocre, more entertainment feeding the fish off the side with the bread!

Give it a miss, its too expensive and there are much better places to enjoy.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011 via mobile

Looks pretty from the outside but do not be deceived. Terrible food and poor service.
