“Great place, great people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We had to walk past the Katafygio every night en route from our apartments into Elounda. Nicos and his staff give you the same warm welcome regardless of whether you are eating there or just passing through. We ate there three times during our stay (one lunch, two dinners) and found the food and service excellent. The fish is so fresh it has almost jumped out of the sea onto the plate.The restaurant is located on a built out area over the sea and the views are beautiful - especially at sunset and as the moon rises.
Don't pass this restaurant by - give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

“Lovely setting, staff pleasant but ...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

The most important thing is the food and they failed miserably. Sorry but you need to think about a new chef.

“Sophisticated Nightlife and Romance Scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

This place is just beautiful! On a warm summer's day, there's nothing nicer than stopping off for an ice cold frappé and sitting on the water's edge in the lovely outdoor area. At night time, the place really transforms; it comes alive with the sound of upbeat music pumping through the club, a place where you can enjoy your holiday on the dancefloor, or if you're the romantic sort, outside where an abundant array of multi-coloured lights prettily illuminate the sea, with water fountains offering a sense of calm and relaxation as you stare out into the pitch black ocean.
