Don't know why we hadn't tried this gem of a place, before, but probably because there are so many tavernas to choose from, and you can only cram so many in, over you holiday.Anyway,- this little place oozes atmosphere, with it's vines trailing from the roof, and the lovely plants and decor. It's situated on a corner, at the harbour, so you can watch life go by.
From the moment we set foot in the place, we were greeted with warmth and friendliness, and this continued throughout the meal.Staff couldn't do enough for us, and were always smiling.The food is absolutely delicious. I had the best moussaka I've ever had ( in Elounda), in this taverna, and my husband declared his lamb chops to be 'fantastic' ( and believe me, he has eaten his way through a fair amount of lamb chops, in Greece, over the years).
This is the sort of traditional taverna Hellenophiles will love. If it's chips etc you want- go somewhere else.We will be hot-footing it back to this taverna next year.Fabulous.

We went here on our last night in Crete. This place was fantastic. Great food, excellent friendly staff who cannot do enough for you and a good place for both lunch and dinner. Please have the Kleftico, as you will certainly want more and more.

Sods law we tried this place on our last evening - the food was the best we had all week with great service and even a free dessert as well as drink at the end. Can't recommend it highly enough both our mains and starters were excellent and PROPER Greek fayre not the usual "it'll do for tourists" rubbish. If we return to Elounda we'll be back.

There are lots of good restaurants in Elounda, and you will never cover them all in a fortnights holiday, but this one has to be on your list. The staff are so welcoming and they genuinely make you feel at home. Although the restaurant is located right in the centre of Elounda and is next to the main road, there is a garden feel to the place.
We were served complimentary potato salad and olives while we were waiting for our starters, which was a nice touch. The food and the house wine were very good and excellent value. After the meal we were then served a very nice complimentary honey and cinnamon cake, and as much Raki as you can drink, (which is usually not very much).
Definetly worth a visit or two.
