We enjoyed Babel and the host whose name I think was Nikos. The ice creams were fab and this is a great place to watch british football matches. When I was there they had three games on at once! It is well worth a visit and is well located in the port.

We always visit Babel when we come to Elounda for our family holiday. We have visited at different times of the day. Great during the day for a drink and hot food is served before 6pm. Various tv screens up for sports watching. We visit in the evening for cocktails, a large selection is offered with children's cocktails too! Friendly... More

We celebrated a birthday here and the staff accommodated us to the max. Great desserts at this friendly music and sports bar serving every cocktail from A to Z. And there is a game room in the back to boot. Great place just to relax and watch the passersby.

good for afternoon snacks and drinks, we also went here on an evening sometimes over our 2 week stay in Elounda. Cocktails are nice, and serve ice cold beers, which is just what you need in the afternoon heat.

My teenage daughter loved this place as it has great wifi, plus they do various cheese toasties and other meals that appeal more to kids. Got to recommend the milkshakes, especially the caramel ones, we came back daily just for them :-) Very friendly staff and right in the heart of Elounda near the main beach.
