“Gorgeous location.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had a few lunches in this lovely location, it is by the side of the small canal leading into Elounda Bay from the lovely Mirabello bay. It is fabulous watching all the water activity while eating the most delicious food. The menu is extensive, the salads are huge and tasty, the meat dishes are wonderful, on one occasion I had rabbit cooked in a tomato based sauce, it was so delicious. The restaurant is under shelter from the sun but there are comfortable benches with cushions outside of the shelter for people to relax and watch the world go by with an ice cold beer to drink.

“Fantastically surreal surroundings”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

My girlfriend and I passed this place by accident when we went to go for a swim around the peninsula, and it looked inviting, as it was literally right on the water facing west with nothing around it.

We ordered up grilled octopus, a half caraf of white wine, and some sparkling water. The octopus so fresh you could practicly still taste the aea on it, and was complimented with fresh oregeno, local olive oil, and fresh lemon, grilled to perfection.

Sipping a solid white on the water front, watching the small fishing boats come back to the gulf, it is definitely a do not kiss if you are in Elounda.

“Excellent food and surroundings.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

A little away from the centre but well worth the trip. The food, service and welcome was great and the position right next to the sea is perfect.

“Romantic setting but mediocre food..”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

Nice setting, relaxed service, good for food, coffee or just a drink.. Food: nothing to write home about.. Dishes are ok but mainly heavy cooking is on offer here.. Prices are fair. A group of youngsters provide an efficient service. I would return for the setting, not for the food. If mosquitos like you, you better have a suitable spray with you because the area is full of those little bastards..

“Genuinely Greek, sitting by the canal and the old bridge, bay of Miambello in front of you.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Good waiters, good to average food. Frequented by many Greeks at lunchtime and at night. You go here for the atmosphere-
