“nice food in a pretty setting”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Having spotted this taverna whilst on the beach one morning we decided to visit for an evening meal. There was a decent choice on the menu and the prices were good for a sea-front taverna.

It was typically Greek looking with the white walls and blue shutters. I would class it more as a taverna than a restaurant as we didn't notice any inside eating areas and the dining area was very sparse. This is what appealed to me tbh as it was a 'Shirley Valentine' type of place.

It was directly on the beach with a great sea view.

There was only one other table in use during the whole time we were there but it was rather late- about 10.30pm and tbh we found the whole resort pretty quiet this year. The food was tasty and didn't take long to arrive.

It was a lovely peaceful dining experience to the sound of the waves.

I would recommend providing you're not looking for a classy top notch restaurant.

“Enjoyed Lunch at Elenas”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We had lunch here, and it was lovely. I had the tuna salad ciabatta, and my husband had the gyros. We both thoroughly enjoyed our dishes. Staff were v pleasant too.

“My boyfriend liked his food.I didn't !!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

If it was just me i would give 2 stars.However my boyfriend liked his food.
The place is nice.You get sea view and friendly service.
Our starter and my boyfriends pizza were nice but my calamari was really bad.It made me feel like i was eating someone's left overs.The also charged us 2 euro for 3 pieces of bread we never ordered.
Next time we have to choose wisely.
