Quick service and so much to choose from, all fresh homemade dishes by Mama in kitchen. Moussaka was stunning and fresh salmon too.

Not tasted better food in Elounda. Our table was reserved without us asking. Greater choice than most. Love the waiters/wattresses.

We had sea bass on our last evening, it was delicious. Bones by Dimitri and son Sotiris in front of us, and served with lemon sauce. Choice of chips or rice, we had both put on the table so people could choose.
