“Excellent”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

We spent a week in Elounda and ate most of our meals here the food was great and at a very reasonable price the staff, Nicos(owner),Tanya(waitress), Alex,Tony and Alex (waiters) were very attentive but did not hurry us we spent on average 2-3 hours over our meals, they all spoke English and answered any questions we had whether they were to do with the food/restaurant or the island. We will definitely be going again when we revisit Crete next year.

“Disco Bar”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This was our 'Gem' find. An amazingly fantastic restaurant. We nick named it the Lobster bar on account that he has pet lobsters in the sea on string, keeping them fresh! The manager was the nicest person ever. When we first found this we sat down and he came and talked with us, he was interested in our holiday etc. We ordered a coffee and tea, they gave us also water and raki with honey and cinnamon in for free, the bill came to 4.50E! We stopped there everytime we walked into Elounda and loved it.

“genuine friendly Nikos and staff really do seem to care for you”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

as I have posted on my other visits to Elounda this is probably one of the most genuine , caring fantastic set of staff and front of house man you will ever come across....

Nikos recognised us from previous visits , always asks how you are even if you are just waking past on route to the village centre . He was very concerned when he heard my Mum had broken her glasses and as a consequence misjudged a glass door in a shop and cracked herself good and proper and ended up with a black eye ....

The ice cream , tea and honey raki you get at the end of every meal is a fab touch and they probably have ( just ) the best stifado in Elounda .... and my Dad reckons the Moussaka is the best here too .

also the started dips here are very very generous .... and the added bonus of a bit basket of bread to drop morsels over the side of the jetty and feed the fish is just an added bonus !

A must for anyone eating in Elounda

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

Visited this restaurant twice in the 7days we were in Elounda. We found the food excellent. Very large portions and everything was beautifully cooked and presented well. The waiters were very friendly and helpfull. Can't think of one negative. Would definitely recommend.
