The restaurant itself is "always open" - that's what the board outside said and even on Nation Day they were serving food. The owner/hosts were very hospitable, and we enjoyed some good food served in a welcoming environment.

A must visit if in Finikounda. Come before sun set and let the evening unfold while the sun sets and take pictures. Some evenings have a band. The food and service are always great. Everytime we visit this is the first restaurant that we go to. We are never disappointed.

We loved Elena's on previous holidays to Fini and made another two visits this time round and we were still very happy! It's in a lovely spot and its so nice sitting having a really good meal whilst overlooking the whole of the bay. We had the best fried courgettes of anywhere and the fava bean dip was just as...

From the highly trained stuff to the mouthwatering tastes, this restaurant is really good. Not far away from the centre of Finikounta, placed in an upper location with picturesque view, you can enjoy the home-cooked dishes. All these under the sound of traditional music and the beautifull space they provide.

We were only in Finikounda for two evenings. We found Elena having read a good review in Rough Guide which helped us with our choice of venue. We were greeted by Ken, who like previous reviewers, made it his business to ensure that we were going to enjoy the occasion. He brought us over a glass of house white on... More

I took my wife here for her birthday. I did tell them that it was a special day but was still surprised by the reaction. The owner, Ken, and the manager put us on the table with best view - they are all pretty good but this was the best. There were flowers on the table when we arrived and... More

Visited initially at lunch-time and liked it so much we went back for dinner later in the week after a chance meeting with Ken who works there. Ken booked a table with a wonderful view for us and the food was, once again, excellent. This restaurant is always busy, but don't let that put you off as the service is... More
