This restaurant was the highlight of our stay, the service from Daniel is equivalent of any 5 start restaurant in London and the food a delight, anyone planning a trip to Elounda should make this place a priority.

So happy we found this place. The food was delicious and fresh! I highly recommend the grilled seabass. Daniel is so warm and welcoming and very hard working. The restaurant was very busy but he still spoke to us and checked on us the whole time. The lady working there was very lovely too. A must visit!!!!

Visited a couple of times during July and was not disappointed. As always the food and service was excellent. Dan and Andrea always do their utmost to make your visit enjoyable. We return to Elounda in October and will certainly be back then.
