This taverna is on the corner just before the harbour/square, past the main beach. It is situated on two sides of the road. We ate here the most during our two week holiday. It had the lot. Great food, good service, friendly staff, nice comfortable atmosphere. We didn't have one "bad" meal here. The menu was varied so choice was... More

Called in for a late with my partner. We skipped starters and went straight for a main. I had chicken fillet with a rich wine, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers. It was absolutely delicious. My partner had chicken fillet with a curry sauce. He said his was also delicious. I have recently come to live in Elounda so will certainly... More

Came here one night for a mezze evening. As we wernt spending loads on a 3 course meal, staff decided we wern't worth their time. Totally forgotten about and sat waiting ages to get the bill. Not impressed. Better places around.

I can't fault the food and service here having eaten here many times at night. It's a classic taverna with great food and reasonably priced and welcoming. I would definitely revisit if I was back in Elounda

We enjoyed an evening here with family and we all ordered the meze for 2. It was delicious but wow was it filling. We couldn't finish ours and thought it would probably have fed 3 people. Service was very good and the white and rose wines were lovely too. The sponge cake at the end of the meal brought to... More

the light and crispy fried mushrooms were very good. I took the mussel in white wine sauce and my husband took the spaghetti with clams which were also rather good. Nice quick service.

Great spot on the Elounda to Plaka road that's nicely laid out and really looks the part for a Traditional taverna.... Where it failed miserably was the service... slowest anywhere we visited! I ordered a fillet steak cooked medium-rare... I got a sirloin cooked medium but their peppercorn sauce made up for the steak as really peppery... Yes I will... More

Enjoyed an evening here where we experienced a typical Elounda Greek Tarvena experience. Great food and service so nothing to criticise although we were not blown away. Enjoyable all the same.
