This is,a small restaurant right on Elafonissi Beach! They have pretty good food and stay busy most of the time! You may have to wait a while for a place to sit, but they do a great job of getting your food out hot and in a timely manner!

I would only recommend that you eat here for the view, not for the service or the food. Just head down to the beach for refreshments.

The waitress was very rude and the food was awfull. The pizza was the worst pizza i ever had. The only good think about the place is the view. I don't recommend this restaurant at all.

For sure the best place to eat in Elafonissi. This place has a very big terrace with an extraordinary panorama to the beach. This is a real added value. Food is good, we had one of the best lamb we ate in Creta. Waiter not so gentle, we tasted they wine but preferred to drink beer. Prices medium range.

Stopped on our way to Elafonisi, This Taverna was a nice surprise as we had no expectations to such quality and service. The food was tasty and the service was perfect. The kids were happy to play with the rabbit in this beautiful terrace... Do not miss...

Perfect place to take a picture of Elafonissi beach, good food, good service.I had grilled octopus and the other clients meals looked yummy.A little expensive compared with other places în Crete ,but is the most close to this beach taverna.

Very friendly and calm place for a quick stop on the way to Elafonisi Beach. Food is traditional Crete family reciepies, large servings. Try the fresh pressed orange juice at 1.5 Euroes. Prices are very resonable, and food is generally well prepared and tasts great. It is clearly a family run place, with friendly greek hospitality and genuine smiles. They... More

We've been here for late lunch and we replied for the dinner since the service and the timing were ok, the dishes also and the price affordable. We had Greek and tuna salad, souvlaki, kleftiko (traditional Greek slow roasted goat), baklava, kataifi. Everything was nice and, in addition to all of that, panorama is really...WOW!!!

Lovely place to eat with amazing view, one of the pricier joints to eat in the area, fish wasn't all that good but everything else was great... Chill out off the beach and get a great view away from the heat and crowds
