Had a lovely lunch here one day during our visit to Elounda. The service was very good and the wifi worked well. The food was served quickly and we had a pizza to share. Good value and nice location, also the toilets were very clean which was very good for a change!

Harbourside seats and the most amazing Margaritas ever! Absolute heaven! Oh, and the most scarily accurate weather forecast! A little rain, he said, and within minutes it started!

Had a fantastic breakfast at Babel. All freshly cooked quality ingredients (eggs cooked to perfection) and great service. Nice comprehensive choice. Would recommend the Full English! Definitely worth a visit and we'll be back!

Babel seems to focus on T.V. sports, with a timetable of soccer all the time while we were there. High quality bar, seating and décor make it much more than just a bar. With really friendly service, and don't forget their great food, we went there every day.
