I don't know why we ignored the TA reviews. It is a big lesson to learn. You must read the reviews and believe them. The food is terrible and the table wine is the worst we had in the whole 14 days. Avoid!

We visited Plaka for an afternoon from Elounda by bus (more like a luxury coach than a bus) and wandered around the delightful streets of Plaka taking in the attractive views of Spinalonga. It was a windy day and the humorous waiter invited us in...More

We came here for lunch and the food was outstanding! Snapper filleted for us and served with wonderful grilled vegetables and the best chips you've ever tasted. The service was attentive and flawless. Worth every euro!
