“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

What a great find, wonderful food and service. Daniel and Andreea, the owners, made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The situation is idyllic overlooking the bay. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy good food after a long day. The prawns and Moroccan lamb were as good as in a 5* in London. Highly recommended.

“Ambience defined perfectly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having visited this restaurant two years ago, we were very pleasantly surprised when Daniel, front of house, instantly recognised and welcomed us with drinks on the house. The ambience is a defining feature, and the attention to detail, from Daniel and Andreea was faultless. We particularly liked the varied menu that provided some alternatives to traditional Greek fare (tasty though that was!). This couple work very hard to maintain standards in a competitive market, evidenced by the fact that the restaurant was always busy. We will see you next year.

Lovely review, thank you!
Reviews like this are hugely rewarding as consistancy is a big deal in this business & knowing that even with the retirement of my parents (previously doing all the cooking) our standards in the kitchen haven't dropped, trust me,it makes sleeping much easier!
Thank you again,
Daniel & Andreea

“A good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Good food with good service but slightly on the expensive side for some dishes. Very good location, quiet with sea views.

“Best fried courgettes ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had two meals while we were there, the service and the food were excellent. We loved the courgettes and recommended them to our friends, they really are the best in Elounda. We felt as though we were at a five star restaurant with the quality of service and food. To finish the meal we were given yogurt dishes , fruit and home made limoncello.
