“Good food - friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The first restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Staff very welcoming. Was very busy so service was on the slow side but we weren't in a hurry. Daughter chose a main dish she wasn't keen on but staff were happy to take away and bring a small portion of her second choice - and didn't charge us the full amount either.
My only gripe - and this goes for many restaurants in the area - is that the wine isn't cold, nor do they have chillers for the tables.

“Pork with Apple and raisins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We ate here twice didn't look at the menu as we had been before and had the Pork with apple and raisins it was absolutely as we remembered it , mouthwatering I've tried copying it at home but it's not quite the same, accompanied with a bottle of rose 40 euros oh I had a creamy mushroom starter.

“Good food in a great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We enjoyed some of the best food that we experienced in Elounda. The menu choices are interesting and the portions generous. The setting by the waters edge is great, and if you have children the fish will keep them fascinated - a piece of brad thrown into the water results in a feeding frenzy. We enjoyed the food som much that we ate here a couple of times.

“Flattered to deceive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Am afraid we came away from here disappointed. Lovely setting sitting out over the sea. No trouble getting a table, but maybe people were put off because it was windy and the water choppy. The meal was very average as was the service. It should have been a great night out but wasn't.
