Fantastic food and hospitality. Amazing crepe Suzette made and flambeed at the table. Greek dancing by the owner. Lovely gentleman who couldn't do enough for you. This place gives you an authentic taste of Greece and the hospitality is second to none. The food is delicious, we ate in the event and for lunches and the food was exceptional. We... More

Had fantastic lunch here, very friendly service and wished we had the time to return for evening meal. We had sea bream which was very fresh and lovely presented and a salad. Free bread and dips for starters. Wine and raki. Would definately recommend to anyone.

This was our seventh visit to Elounda and we always eat out. We had read a great deal about this restaurant, so had to try it out. This was without any doubt the worst meal we have had in all our years visiting Elounda. When served, the food was cold and the lamb chops I had were so tough I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant. I am very disappointed to read your comments and would like to take this opportunity to respond. Firstly our produce is grown locally and delivered fresh daily. We do not serve anything from a tin!! Our lamb chops are seasoned and marinated for several hours before cooking to order. When...

Located just outside the town of Elounda, this lovely spacious restaurant boasts a peaceful atmosphere which can be a welcome break from the barmy greek nights. The food is plentiful & tasty with lovely presentation and great value for money. Manolis is very hospitable, and always welcomes us with a warm welcome. He is attentive and accommodating and always takes... More

Very large restaurant on the main road through Elounda. Took advice from TripAdvisor again and was not disappointed. The food was fabulous, plenty of choice and prices were very reasonable. We did have to wait a little but it was worth it. All the meals in our party of 6 were excellent. The owner Manolis visited our table many times... More

We decided to eat out rather than the hotel inclusive buffet dinner. Maybe we went on an off night but the food was nothing special and, compared to other better restaurants we ate in in Elounda, it was very pricey. The waitress was pleasant but not very helpful - kept needing to check whether what we wanted off the menu... More
