Called in for lunch and had dakos (like bruschetta, but with rusk bread and feta), plus a beautiful Greek salad. Basic food, but done to perfection and for very reasonable prices.

Don't normally go for "Sports Bars" but we were hungry, it was hot etc. The "trapper" was actually quite good, he got us to the menu and then did not hassle us. Despite it appearing to be the standard British fair we all had Greek food and it was good!
Very friendly staff, all in a good choice

Excellent bar with friendly staff. Great place to sit with an ouzo or a beer and watch the activity at the harbour.

Me and my girlfriend recently went for a weeks holiday in Elounda, Crete. We visited Babel on our second night, and went back almost every night after that.

Huge list of cocktails, split into groups of their major alcoholic component making choosing easy. Nothing was too expensive, so you could relax and enjoy your night without worrying about the cost.
Free nibbles (crisps and nuts) with all drinks.
A HUGE food menu. I had a burger, and my girlfriend had a banana crepe. Both were excellent, and far bigger than we were expecting based on the price. (My burger was so big I couldn't even finish it. An unusual event as anyone who knows me will tell you!)
Staff were really nice and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
You can sit there and look out on to the harbor/sea front.
Sports are shown on the TV's, and music is playing, but neither of them dominate the atmosphere. If you want to listen to the music/watch the game you can, but equally you can easily block them out and just have a quiet drink.

We didn't have children, but on more than one occasion we were their while families were there and the staff were great with the kids also.

Another nice touch compared to other places we visited was when they bring you your drinks they also bring you your bill straight away. It means you avoid that awkward moment of asking for it, and there is no pressure to stay for more than one drink if you don't want to.

Fantastic place, and when we visit Crete again we shall definitely be visiting Babel.

This was the saviour from the All Inclusive mush, This was an excellent little bar/cafe service great, friendly staff who go out their way to accomodate you, they have sky sports so you can watch football they made us very welcome and saved us seats at the front to watch the football match which my 14 year old son was delighted with. The food is nice, fresh and there is a good choice, My son said that the milkshake was the best he ever tasted. :))
