We dined here twice while in Elounda. The happy and attentive staff treated us like family. From salad wine and ouzo to fresh fish cheesecake and a little raki to make things right. They are a well established venue and know how to take care...More

For dinner or lunch this restaurant has fabulous food, very very surprised if anyone did not like everything about it. The best for me is the Meze as I enjoy this rather than a main meal.

Had lunch here after our trip to Spinalonga Island. Lovely bayside/dockside view. Great service. We had the sampler platter with included about 15 items served family style. Great selection of Greek specialties enough to feed 4 people for about 50 dollars.

Really good local food. The rabbit stew was excellent, as was the grilled sole. The staff were attentive and friendly. Didn't seem to be too popular, but you should go to enjoy the excellent food
