We ate here on our first and last evening in Elounda, the service was brilliant and the food was absolutely delicious. Both times we were served complimentary desserts. Highly recommended!

Opposite Elounda harbour making a perfect setting for some classic Greek cuisine served by attentive and delightful staff. There are loads of very good restaurants in Elounda and it's difficult to say which one is best. The Leonidas is definitely up there with the best, and the cost of food and drink is extremely reasonable. Our meal was faultless (2... More

We had numerous lunches and evening meals at Leonidas and enjoyed every one of them. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a variety of traditional dishes and would certainly recommend this little place to others.

Bright green tablecloths make this restaurant really stand out and the food was excellent.Welcoming, friendly staff. Even went out of there way with my fussy daughters pizza. Good sized portions and good prices. Lovely place to watch the boats and people go by. Try the garlic shrimps.

We went for a late lunch during our day at Elounda. Have to say it was one of our favourite meals of our holiday. We ordered lots of the Greek starters so had a tapas style meal. The fried courgettes and aubergines went down well with the children. Mussels and meatballs were amazing. Can't fault any of the dishes we... More

The food in this place is awful. The quality of the food as well as the taste are terrible. Everything is pre-cooked. It is a tourist trap as it is located in a very touristic location. If you are lookig for good quality and tasty food avoid this place.

Leonidas is a lovely taverna near the marina. Excellent food, value for money and the staff are really friendly and helpful. They are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. We went 3 times during our 14 night stay and every meal was perfect. Can't recommend this eatery highly enough, give it a go, you won't be disappointed!

Thank Dixiechick29
