“How was your meal in my Disco ?”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

What a lovely man...outside the restaurant morning noon and night.
We had called in for a drink on our first night and really enjoyed the live music....but how would the food rack up ?
we sat inside...which is the Bar/Disco area seated at a lovely table and settled in for a pleasant meal.
well.....it didn't go as planned :)
The DJ was trying to get the music set at a decent level for diners....and whoever was trying to sort the lights out must have had his sunglasses on !
As ourmeals were delivered to the table...the lights went out...then a spotlight came on...directly onto the table then promptly went out again ¬ Then on....and off and on....and off again ! The ambient light was just sufficient for us to continue eating but that was difficult as we were laughing so much.It was definately a "Carry On" occasion.
However the food was excellent... my Greek Plate and my wifes dish( she said was excellent.)...were well worth the bill.
When the Happy man from outside came over to the table and asked...
"How was your meal in my Disco"? we cracked up. We shook hands and hugged,,,it was that kind of a moment.
Smiles all round we left.....
Now a few nights later...their last night of the season...and the Disco was still blazing at 4.25am mmmmm !
A great memory...a great venue..
Pity I had to look at my picures the day after to see what I had actually eaten :)
hey...great people really friendly We loved it.

“Great food in a great location”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This taverna is one of my favourites in Elounda - Nikos makes you feel very welcome, and I have been going back there for years now. The setting is beautiful, right on the seafront - we even saw a giant turtle nearby a couple of years ago! The house wine is good, and the food is very tasty with just the right size portions! Every Thursday they have a Greek night with singing and dancing, and the cinnamon tea is wonderful! It's the oldest restaurant in Elounda, and is definitely worth a visit at least once :)

“Nice food but grumpy staff”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were welcomed by the owner who convinced us to eat but the staff seemed really unhappy which left us feeling disappointed by the experience, so we did not return

“Great greek night”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We were fortunate enough to be around for Thursday's greek night, a great party - live music, people dancing around, breaking some plates, fire and fireworks... just what we were looking for. We didn't eat but tried quite a few drinks, the place has a variety of drinks and in an affordable price. We were there during the night time but I'm sure the place looks gorgeous during the day when you sit in the sun near the sea.
