Have been to this bar a few times over the last few years and its a great place to watch the world go by. Drinks are good and its the best place to watch football matches as they will show up to six different games on a Saturday. Best bar in Elounda.

One of the first places we visited and returned numerous times. Food menu is extensive and varied as is the drinks menu. A large, family feel bar and restaurant in the square facing the harbour. Service is friendly and fast and the quality of the food was great. Also visited this place to watch live sports on multi screens. Most... More

The proprietor suggested that in the circumstances we share one between the two of us, which we thought was a very nice gesture. Equally as nice was... More

Owner was at the front of the restaurant and explained his fresh specials for the day. Had simple food, freshly cooked and the coffee was great!

On a previous visit we had stopped for a Greek salad lunch - and as usual enjoyed it. We noticed there seemed... More
