“One of the best bars in the world? It has to be”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Didn't have a meal but the ambience and the cocktails were gorgeous. Dimitri and his waitress were lovely and the music played was great and personally created with a lot of thought by Dimitri.
Had a couple of very enjoyable evenings there

“Great fun”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately only in elounda for long weekend but managed to spend a few nights at friends bar. Great cocktails, bar snacks, service and the owner Dimitri was more than happy to prepare play lists for your personal choice of music so you could dance the night away with your friends, old and new! What fun - thank you

“What can I say?!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Best bar in Elounda and Dimitris, the owner, is such a fine man. Katerina, the waitress is also a lovely person. We always go to Friends Bar but it was 2 years since our last Elounda holiday so we wondered if they would remember us! Oh what a superb welcome we got! It was great to see Dimitris and Katerina again. Very good times in Friends Bar. They go out of their way to make your visit a good one. Good music, good drinks, good company, good atmosphere, good friends.

“Great cocktails”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Went there twice during our vacation in Elounda. Had 5 different cocktails, each was made to perfection.
The cold coffee (Nescafé) wasn't that good, but guess it's hard to nail that one...

“Many a good night here!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

This is a fab bar - Dimitris is lovely and really does treat everyone like they are old friends! He makes gorgeous cocktails and you only have to watch him make them to see the effort and attention to detail he puts in - and they taste amazing too!

The type of night you have here varies dependent on whether you sit at the bar and who else joins you!! We have sat across the road and it's much like any other bar - but if you sit inside and get a good mix of people plus Dimitri's brilliant music - well you will still be there at 4 am!! (we were!) and having a whale of a time!! Friendly indeed!
