Been 3 times to Elounda and now 6 times to this taverna. Food always delicious, hot and beautifully presented. The glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice are always refreshing, as is the slices of watermelon given free after the meal. Well recommended x

Both my husband and myself absolutely love this restaurant. The staff are faultless and the food is second to none. We are made to feel like one of the family every time we go there. We have never had a bad meal & this was our 6th time to Elounda & we make sure we eat there as many times as we can. My husband wanted lobster one night & this was no problem for them at all, they got it in especially for him & cooked it just the way he wanted & he said it was delicious. Fotini & Yani are so attentive & nothing is too much trouble for them, even to the point of getting a cloth napkin for me to sit on as the seats get a bit hot at the height of the season! The restaurant is perfectly situated with a perfect view of the harbour. Fotini and Yani made our last night so special, they reserved a table for us which was really lovely. We have already booked to go next year and our first place to visit will be Leonidas. They also know our drinks order, one white wine, one red wine & a bottle of Sprite which they provide for us straight away. Like I have said, nothing is too much trouble for them. A definite must if you visit Elounda.

We first visited Leonidas on our last trip to Elounda two years ago, and we enjoyed it so much we had to go again this time. Leonidas is well located at the harbour, where there is a lot of competition for customers, so you have to try hard, and Leonidas certainly do. The owners are staff are so welcoming and the place has a lovely atmosphere.
We had Calamari for our starter which was actually a bit disappointing, but the main courses of Greek plate and Chicken Souvakli were very good. The house white wine was one of the best we had, and your glass was topped up by a passing waiter when it was looking a bit depleted. As in a lot of the restaurants in Elounda, the meal is followed by complimentary water melon and Raki. Although this is a nice touch, I would have preferred Baklava and Metaxa, (well I can dream can't I?)

If you want the very best in Greek food and a genuine Greek welcome, you need look no further than Leonidas ! Fotini and her family will look after your every need.

We had a delightful meal at the Taverna Leonidas in Elounda. The prices are reasonable (especially for the delicious Greek meal). This was a favorite in town spot with friendly service and fresh ingredients compared to similar restaurants in the area (the calamari and baked feta were standouts).
