A busy & popular restaurant, but the team always accommodated us. Great atmosphere, location and food delicious. One of the best restaurants in Elounda. Value for money and very friendly.

Very nice and good food but since renovation has become a bit pricey. The waiters are all very pleasant and helpful. I have no doubt we will be back there when we return in May 2018.

Nice little restaurant by the waters edge, with a very friendly staff and generous owner. Some interesting tweaks on old favourite dishes which are a welcome after many days of the same.

Fantastic restaurant, full stop! Delicious food, first class service, romantic ambiance and professional customer relations. What else you would expect from a restaurant. Yes it s expensive in Greek standards but in my opinion they deserve every single penny of it.
