“Loved it”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Ate here twice over our five day stay and loved it!! Owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome and put on two patio heaters when he saw I was cold! Food was really good and the Mezes has to be experienced! Complimentary cake and Raki were a nice touch! Service was exceptional... Only sorry we didn't try it earlier in our stay as we probably would have ate here every night!!!

“Thank you Thanos and the brothers,Vote Samarras?”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We have been visiting Elounda for four years now, twice a year and have made the mistake of never having visited this fantastic restuarant.

This has now been rectified and in style, three visits in a week!

The welcome from Thanos and the brothers was lovely and they help make your night.

The premises are located, just slightly behind the harbour front, adjacent nearly to the newly re-furbished playground.

The interior is pleasant and typically taverna in appearance. Indeed at the back is a massive dining area used for weddings which is most impressive.

We started our first meal with village susages followed by a beef stifardo, fantastic. The onions were sweet and the beef delicious.

For Easter, I had the Easter soup. Now, this has some odd ingredients for the faint hearted but I can report it was gorgeous. All lemons and dill, fantastic. The medley of lamb that followed was truly lovely.

For our third visit the large Meze was tackled.This was brilliant, with a starter course. a fish course and a meat course.Everything was cooked to perfection, from the octopus to the kebabs.Historic, as the late Mr Winner would say.

All three meals were finished off with Gratis Raki,[ Greek water] and dessert.

The value for money,variety and quality of food was just exceptional. It is rare to get three good meals in a row but this is what we had.

We would like to thank everyone at the restuarant, especially the cook for our experiences. We will see you in June.

Clean toilets.

Highly recommended.
