The food is still the best in Elounda. Really enjoyed the food and the service is very good. Will be returning soon as we still have a few days left on our holidays.

The food is the best food I've ever had in the world. The staff are so friendly and kind, they are always on hand if you need anything. This is my first time in Greece and I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else other than Vachus!

I have been dining at vachus taverna since 1986 and kept on coming ever since. The best food in crete and that is a fact. No need to waste your time with other restaurants that will serve you frozen fish or a version of musaka that you would not feed your dog with. Ask for something that is not on... More

When I came there at around 8.30 pm the place was almost empty and the host told me that very soon all tables will be gone. I thought he was just a normal salesperson, however, the man was right and my girlfriend and I were lucky to get the last table when we came back half an hour later. The... More

I must admit that the reason why we went in there was that they were so relaxed. No one that pressed us . They let us see the meny outside in peace - and that is the best. I hate when they hang on your schoulder and talk and talk... But how lucky we were. We got the best food... More
