Fantastic restaurant, we shared the aubergine special as a starter, then had Moussaka and Stifado for our main course. The food and wine were excellent as were the staff. Will definitely be visiting this restaurant again.

Upon a recommendation from another couple staying at the same resort we visited Elounda one evening. We were encouraged by the plethora of restaurants that had 4.5 stars so opted for the Vachus Taverna. Having dined in Karnagios the previous evening, which was truly exceptional,...More
