In restaurant now for the fourth time this week. Made to feel very special by the warm friendly but efficient staff. Food is excellent and good value for money. Will be back again and again. I am a fussy eater but have enjoyed every meal....More

The menu is extensive and the food is great. Nothing is too much trouble and you will not find a better welcome in Eloúnda. As a vegetarian, it's good to find a wide choice. Great place.

A favourite place of ours when in Elounda. We visit several times each visit we make. The food is good, plentiful and hot. Demitris, Sotis and Nikos are excellent front of house. Often very busy with people returning.

This restaurant is an absolute gem. The staff offer a warm welcome and are helpful and courteous throughout. The food is just wonderful. From the cheese pies, creamy mushrooms through to the Moussaka and the Bekri Meze(*), the flavours come bursting through in your mouth....More
