“A great bar/restaurant with fantastic views of the harbour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We were only in Elounda for the day so we were lucky to find this spot. It may be that the food is not haute cuisine but the menu had a terrific choice of food to satisfy all tastes and dietary needs. The service was absolutely tremendous - quick without feeling rushed and really friendly. The prices for food and drink were all good value. The view over the harbour from the tiered tables was great. For sports fans there were a number of TV screens but they did not seem intrusive. If you had to chose just one restaurant for a stay of several days in Elounda then make it this one.
