“No atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We visited the Oasis at the end of August to check out if the new owners had retained the same high standards and have to say we were disappointed. Our food was very average - not used to getting bread from a shop sliced loaf, I expected some fresh granary or the likes - and as we were the only people in the place there was no atmosphere at all. The owner was quite friendly but not a patch on the previous ones. We also visited one evening for a drink after our evening meal and found only one other table occupied. Not sure how a very english cafe can be so high in the restaurant ratings!

Thank you for your response on Trip Advisor.
Just to put the record straight, all our bread is fresh daily, from a local baker not a shop.
We do not stock granary bread as there was little or no call for it.
We are not sure what "atmosphere" you like or indeed the "atmosphere" set by the previous owners. However, it is clearly enjoyed by the vast majority of our guests, as is the food, hence the high rating.

“Warm and very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

If your looking for a light snack then this is the place to go. Toasted sandwiches were amazing, freshly made sandwiches were also very good. Portions for one was certainly enough for two. The owners George and Pam (British by the way ) were very friendly,happy to sit and talk to you about anything. Not forgetting Debbie who helps out with her great service and always comes with a smile. Don't just walk by,pop in for some great hospitality. Oh and they have great Quiz nights in the week.We had a gd night joining in with the fun.

“Great Welcome, Tasty afternoon cakes and Rock and Roll Bingo too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Lovely welcome from George and Pam.
We had afternoon cake and coffee almost every day(cakes homemade by Pam) under the awning watching the world go bye while our boys played chess on the veranda whilst enjoying double scoop cornet cones.
(the Oasis holds a nice selection of board games that you are welcome to use whilst relaxing, as well as some information sheets / pamphlets on the local area which you can use to plan any trips whilst nibbling on the holemade cakes, or a lovely toasted sandwich)

George does a great little quiz night twice a week (Thursday and Sunday) with 'Rock n Roll Bingo' between the question and answer session.


Lovely little cafe bar on the Elounda causeway road
