“What a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

My wife and I have been to Crete probably about 15 times now and stopped at several different resorts and have just returned from a fortnight in Elounda where we discovered Leonidas Taverna. Usually we "spread the wealth" - not eating at the same place twice - but on discovering Leonidas we returned again and again. The food we had was superb but the staff really make it a complete experience, so warm and welcoming. We have got to give Pantelis "pants" a special mention - what a great guy. Also Florentina, always there with a lovely smile. It has got to be one of the best places we have been to.. Nothing seems to be too much trouble, they even cooked the fish we caught on a boat trip one night for us. Go and check it out, its round by the beach just up from Babels with two Olive tres out front with twinkly lights on.
