We found this restaurant en route to Plaka and decided to try it out. The location is just off of the main port of Elounda so the atmosphere was a lot more relaxed.
We ordered the fried 'saganaki' for starter, the portion was enough for two to share combined with the usual free bread and in this case garlic butter too. Main meals were both delicious and full of flavour.
Although this is obviously a tourist town, the restaurant had very much a family feel about it.
Our dinner of saganaki, bread, chicken and rice, prawns in feta and tomato with half a carafe of rose (and our free dessert of chocolate cake) came to an extremely reasonable price of 29€....an absolute bargain for the quality of food!
Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Elounda!
