We were here the last night before the restaurant closed for the season. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. I ordered the steak fillet a la creme. The beef was so tender, beautifully cooked and the sauce was delicious. Will certainly be back when it re-opens as I have recently come to live in Elounda.

Really enjoyed our supper here. Didn't see evidence of it being expensive as per some of the other reviews. On the contrary, it was very reasonable compared to another restaurant (Megaro) we had visited on the front. Lovely location - lots of fish swimming around. Food good/traditional - excellent fava salad and orange cake. Would definitely go back. Good Cretan... More

We ate here four times during our recent 11-night stay. The location is perfect, situated in the centre of Elounda and jutting out over the water. It's quite clear from the look and feel of the place that this is more than just a cheap, traditional taverna. Yes, the prices may be a little more but in our view it's... More

Great location out over the sea from the main square in Elounda. Our third visit and food always good. Service much improved since last year. Very entertaining to feed fish with bread over side.

On a windy evening this restaurant was sheltered and cosy. The ubiquitous encouragement to eat there from the man at the entrance but we gave it a go. The "shrimp" risotto was tasty with good sized prawns while the mixed grill was a real meat-fest. Complaints were minor - with so much meat on the mixed grill, a hot plate... More

Exceptional food, friendly team and very reasonably priced! Went with my partner who had gf Chicken Gyros which was absolutely sublime! I had the Pepper Steak that was cooked to perfection! Both served with home made chips that are like nothing we have tasted before! Highly recommended!

In the harbour at Elounda, literally with water on three sides, the restaurant welcomes you to traditional greek meals of medium quality. Good atmosphere, fine views and rapid service.

In general - good restaurant with delicious food, excellent wine choice, great service. The prices are a bit high, because the portions are smaller than in the most of Greek restaurants.

What a lovely spot to have a restaurant. This was perfect for a lunch spot in the middle of the day looking out at the harbour. With delicious food and friendly staff we had a great time. 👍🏻👍🏻
