“If you love football..........”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Had a few after dinner drinks here! Was absolutely packed when the football was on - i've never seen as many TV screens! Bet you have to book a seat when its World Cup - good service though and very nice cocktails!

“Perfect lunch venue, wonderful welcoming host, reasonably priced.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Best souvlaki in Elounda and you must try the fried cheese!
We returned here a few times throughout our one week holiday. It's a good venue to watch sport. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced and good quality. The service is what sets this apart from other restaurants though, the owner (whose name sounds like Nectarine) was so attentive and polite and the waitress was also very friendly and professional. One day we ordered a drop of champagne spilled being poured and the owner brought us a complimentary miniature bottle to make up for it. In addition, we went to watch the F1 in babel and it was quite busy, the owner made sure he moved our party to a larger better situated table as soon as it became available.
Would recommend to all! We will be back x

“Great food and lovely staff”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

We ate here everyday for lunch on our recent holiday!!! Nek, the owner, and his staff were friendly and welcoming and the food fabulous too! Great place also to watch sporting events - we caught Monaco Grand Prix while we were there, lots of screens, but Nek keeps the front section if the bar free from screens for those not interested. Great place worth a visit!!

“WOW what a wecome! So good we went back again!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The guy that is the front of house for this café has customer service done to a tee and beyond! He makes you feel that he has known you all his life and it is him that sells this place.
The coffee is great - the views spectacular and the welcome is fantastic. I would rate this place a thousand times over!!
