Revisited Elounda end of October/ November so end of season. It was great to see owners Evangalia and brother Vagelis... As they were closed for refurbishment at Easter when we visited and wow the pier is amazing, the new glass panel are superb whether open or closed. The menu had changed dramatically from 2015. As ever our meals were fabulous.... More

Nice spot for lunch eating out on the end of the pontoon in the sea. This was the second visit and the service was not as good or friendly as the first time. The owner seemed to want to push his own ideas of what you should eat and showed his disappointment when you wanted to chose your own food.... More

We visited this restaurant for a late lunch. We had the haloumi, a Greek salad and shrimp saganaki to share. The food was really fresh, tasty and the portions were large (but not intimidating). The waiters were attentive and the atmosphere was lovely. Being able to eat on the water was really nice.

We were recommended to the restaurant by a local. The fish on offer was amazing - freshly caught, cooked and delicious. Plenty to choose from the menu and beautifully cooked and presented. The staff and owner were really friendly and funny. Half way through the evening two local musicians arrived and played Cretan music on guitar and mandolin.

We popped here for late lunch having enjoyed a morning on the causeway beach just along the road. Received a lovely warm welcome from the owner who showed us to our table with fine views over the water. Great menu, their seafood is particularly good and we especially enjoyed the grilled prawns. But the real highlight for us was the... More
