“We drove over from Agios Nikolous two nights in a row”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We've now had 5 dishes at this place and they were all great: the garlic bread, sweet peppers, lamb of sheeper, spakoto, and baklava. Everything was really, really good traditional Cretan food. Both nights we shared a main dish and two meze dishes, and that was the right amount of food. We paid roughly 20 euros both times, including our drinks. The staff are nice people.

“Great meze for two”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We only visited Vachus once but wished we'd been staying in Elounda longer. There were so many restaurants to try out and simply not enough time! We chose the meze for two and it was so large (and so wonderful) that we could not eat it all, very unusual for us who love our food and in quantity too. We had wine with the meal and then enjoyed a free dessert and free raki. The bill came to only 29 euros, amazing.

Many Greeks also eat here which is always a good sign. We'll be back!

“Constantly Delivers”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

We have been going to this restaurant for 7 years and have never had a bad meal.
It doesn't have the wow factor or location of some of the waterside places,biut neither does it have those prices!
Just good honest food with friendly staff who remember everyone and are always delighted to see you.Highly recomended.

“Best Traditional meal”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

First night in Elounda and the food is amazing, we tried Dakos (was so yummy) Grilled Octopus (Melted in your mouth) and the Vachus Chicken (Scrumptious). Needless to say the food was divine and we shall visit again next year.
