We ate here quite late one evening at around 10.30pm, the place was full and remained so until we left at around 12.15. It was mostly locals so we hoped we were on to a good thing, wee were not disappointed. We ordered the fish platter for 2. Is contained around 8 different seafoods and fish and all were excellent....

After reading previous reviews I was expecting some seriously good seafood, however it wasn't. The crab starter was just crab sticks and Marie Rose sauce and the fish main course was so heavily drenched in lemon I could taste nothing else. Hopefully this is just a blip though, I heard elsewhere the usual chef was ill, fingers crossed they get... More

We had the Gorgeous grilled prawns for 2, fresh and soooo tasty. Was worth the price! Was busy and lots of atmosphere, lovely staff. Lovely complementary starter- stewed vegetable type thing with croutons and bread, and melon and watermelon given after wards.

This is by far the best seafood tavern I've ever visited. Fresh fish is caught daily, oysters, prawns, mussels all delicious. Food not only limited to seafood, as they serve meat and grill dishes also. Restaurant is very hospitable and the raki is always freely flowing. If you are in Elounda, this is the restaurant to visit first!!

Probably one of our favourite restaurants in Elounda although there are many to choose from. Service and choice of food is excellent. Great location would highly recommend.

Nikos is a warm, friendly host who enjoys showing you the fish he has on offer. I had a delicious swordfish steak. The added bonus was a tasting dish of veg in a tasty sauce that his Mother had made.

This family run Greek fish restaurant is a joy to visit. Lots of meat and salad dishes are also available but the one to go for is giant King Prawns on a bed of salad and chips with a reasonable sized Crayfish for the princely sum of 35 euros. The Crayfish was free gratis as it only weighed in at... More

The fish was so fresh that one night the waiter went away and brought back the fish and had it cooked that night
