“Fantastic night out ......”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Great first meal of the season at the Thea, fantastic bbq, Manoli and Antonio as welcoming as ever. Really worth a visit the table was groaning under the weight of fantastic food, I would recommend anyone visiting Elounda to try it and Antonio's chocolate cake is still the best we have ever tasted.

“An Excellent Meal”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Thea Restaurant was a good experience. It was very quiet (at one stage we were the only table in the restaurant) but the food was excellent and the service very attentive. Excellent value for money. A little outside of Elounda and not sure we would have noticed without looking up restaurants on Tripadvisor. I

“Still the best place to eat in Elounda”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We think it was about 18 or 19 years ago that we took our first holiday in Elounda, the hotel we were staying in was awful and it could have been a terrible holiday but the Thea saved our holiday, it was easy to get to and we ate there every night.
The food was superb, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the restaurant was spotlessly clean.
In short eating there was possibly the highlight of the holiday

Our next two holidays were also taken in Elounda, and while we stayed in a better hotel we had no reason to change our choice of restaurant and so our nightly visits to the Thea were once again an important part of the holiday.
The only thing that really changed at the Thea over the three years was the waiter, everything else was just as good as it had always been.
Great food, reasonable prices and a really nice place to spend a few hours relaxing.

With such fond memories of the Thea it was with some trepidation that we returned this year.
We need not have worried, the food was very bit as good as we remembered, possibly even better.
The prices were reasonable, (unlike those of the waterfront tavernas in the village).
The restaurant was a little more sophisticated than we recalled but it was immaculately clean.
And Manolis, well he was quite simply the perfect host he has always been.
Will we go back? Of course.
Do we recommend it? Of course.
We think the Thea is the best restaurant in Elounda and that Manolis is the perfect host.

And so a final word about this lovely restaurant but keep this quiet, this is just between me and you the reader, our little secret as it were.
If, after reading this you decide to eat at the Thea you really should try the delicious chocolate cake, but please don't eat it all, leave some for me!!!
