We ate at this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews we had read and were glad we did. We live in Greece so are used to Greek food done well so were keen not to fall into any tourist traps in Elounda.....although the couple running the restaurant aren't Greek the food was pretty good. We ate Prawn Saganaki, chicken curry (for the kids!) some little tomato breads with anchovies and some other small dishes. It was a really windy night, our first in Crete, and the kids were freezing. There were no tables inside but we were given blankets to wrap around us which was a nice touch!

Elounda itself is not the prettiest part of Crete im sure, but you could do worse than eat here. We even got some homemade apricot tart and some ice cream on the house!

We had a fabulous meal here and it was amazing value compared to some of the other restaurants in elounda. The staff were friendly, the portions plentiful and the house wine exceptional.

Myself and my partner visited elounda for the first time last week and were recommended this restaurant. We booked a table and when we arrived all other tables were reserved (always a good sign). We were not disappointed-the staff were very friendly and provided excellent service, the food was amazing and cooked to perfection. We are both seafood fans so decided to book a table 3 nights later and ordered lobster, it tasted fantastic and the view of the restaurant is perfect. The manager even told us the time the moon was rising so we were able to watch this, we did not feel rushed at all and are already planning our next trip to elounda to visit this resturant.
