The food and service was very good at the Vachus Taverna. We came in with many children on a very hot August day. Although the high street tourist location, the restaurant was very pleasant, with a family operated attitude. The food was really tasty! Will definitely return.

The best Greek food I've ever had. Small and friendly and ridiculously underpriced. Please don't let the prices put you off, the food is incredible.

Traditional Greek food, pleasant staff, and less traditional food for those not wanting Greek, like pizza and pasta. I had homemade pitta, feta and tomato and Greek bread and sesame seed and honey cheese-all delicious and a good value lunch.

The food is still the best in Elounda. Really enjoyed the food and the service is very good. Will be returning soon as we still have a few days left on our holidays.

The food is the best food I've ever had in the world. The staff are so friendly and kind, they are always on hand if you need anything. This is my first time in Greece and I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else other than Vachus!
