One of the nicest little taverns in Elounda with great view of the bay. The home made food is fantastic and very tasteful. The owners, Marinos and his lovely lady Maria (mostly in the kitchen) are very kind persons with unique humor. Do not expect a vast variety of dishes but be prepared for the best quality and amazing good... More

This lovely little restaurant is just out of town but is worth a visit. It is small, family and the food is traditional, simple and delicious. We were given complimentary pre-starters, marinated beans, tomatoes and anchovies with breads and they were excellent. We were also given free desert and ouzo at the end of the meal. The food was quality,... More

Despite the fact that this restaurant is known as luxurious, I think everyone can afford the prices.The food is so savorous that I can't resist an immediate revisit.

One of those occasions when you eat at a restaurant that's not grand or pretentious but serves fantastic food and leaves you with a memorable experience. For the quality of the food, authenticity, passion, service and setting, one of the best dining experiences I've had. Get your advice on what to eat from the owner - he knows every dish... More

We had visited this restaurant on a previous trip to Elounda and were pleasantly surprised that, despite the years and development around this hillside location, it was just as good . The views are beautiful out over the bay but the small outdoor terrace is pressed by the surrounding buildings and country road to the front. A reservation is advisable... More

What a great find this restaurant was! The owner was such a nice guy & he knew the menu inside out. His wife did the cooking. My starter of cheese with spicy peppers was divine. The mains were also fab I had beef hubby had lamb chops. The place had such a nice authentic feel to it and I would... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal here with a delightful owner who was attentive but not overly so and was very concerned that everything was just right for us. We thought the service was efficient and fairly quick, although it was perhaps a quieter night than it had been. We had tried to eat there the night before but a table was... More

Booked a table for the Sunday 9th of October but was unable to make it. Emailed the owners who were accommodating and booked us in for 4 days later. I am so glad we came here to experience true Cretan cuisine in a charming atmosphere. We had such a great evening. Upon arrival we were shown to a sea view... More

We have been coming to Elounda for some years now and have just discovered this gem of a taverna. Completely authentic Greek food (my husband is Greek so he knows his food......) Lovely atmosphere and an owner/waiter who will do anything to please. We will be back.
