I love it when the food and service were really good but what I loved the most is when the owner/manager has a personal touch of everything.it feels like you're part of the family. Loving Daniel and his wife. Excellent!

The food here is absolutely excellent with a great choice of wines. The English owner delivers authentic Greek cuisine for a good price and the food is full of flavour. Fantastic service and one of the best restaurants in Elounda, you must visit atleast once.

Didn't try this until our last night. Saved the best for last. The food was amazing and no more expensive than a mid price meal in the UK. Great service as well and the view is lovely.
