“Amazing Cocktails”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Spent a week in Elounda and always called for a few cocktails after our evening meal...very chilled and laid back , good music and the Mojitos were to die for but the star is Katarina who was amazingly friendly and always took time out to chat to you .

“Great for cocktails”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We only had cocktails here and they were great - well made with a decent amount of spirits and lots of little snacks. We had read some reviews that the cocktails were cheaper here than other places but when we were there they were the same price as everywhere else (around 7 euros). A great place to people watch in the square.

“The name says it all”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

More of a bar than a restaurant, although food was available and good value for money.
First place we went to after being dumped in Elounda Square by the transfer coach. Think we managed to end up in Friends almost every day of the holiday and it became a meeting place for wedding guests (nieces wedding at an Elounda hotel) on stag/hen night and various post wedding meetings in the town. Really friendly staff and good service.

“A must to visit”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I have been to Elounda many times, and went to Friends Bar when it first opened. It is now a 'must' when we go to Elounda. It is smart, with great music, and a really good atmosphere. I have spent many a late night there, sometimes to 5am! The host Demitiis knows his music, and his drinks, but Katarina, who serves the drinks is such a lovely friendly person. I would go to Friends just to see her! A great venue with a party atmosphere.
