This restaurant is perched high in Mavrikiano with amazing views over Elounda. It is a traditional Greek restaurant and the food is lovely at a very reasonable price.
The owner brought bread and olives to our table. He made us feel very welcome and apologised (unnecessarily) several times for keeping us waiting.
We chose spicy pork, prawns and a Greek salad, portions were generous and food delicious.
After our meal the owner presented us with a huge baklava that his wife had baked.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to return one day.

It's a great restaurant not to be missed, with an unforgettable view. A pleasant way to spend your summer evenings. The service is impeccable, the food fresh and very well cooked. You really have to try it! I really enjoyed the time spent at your restaurant. Mr. Mavrikiano all the best from Bucharest, Romania.

If you you are looking for a great meal, excellent service, fabulos view do not hesitate to visit this restaurant. A small family business brought a big smile to my face after every meal I had there. You have to try the big fig salad and the house red wine, it's a must.
Mr. Marino, all the best from Romania!

I do not usually write reviews but we recently visited the new Palio Kantouni and cannot recommend this place highly enough. The food and hospitality of this lovely family are second to none. Marinhos the owner even offered to give us a lift back to our hotel as we had our young nephew with us, we declined as we didn't want to inconvenience him at all but he would have been very happy to take us.

Unfortunately we found this little gem of a place on our last evening. otherwise I think we would have eaten there every night.

We will be back!
