We visited here twice whilst on holiday last week and I would highly recommend this place to anyone. The staff are great very friendly and very helpful the food is out of this world. I had a mixed grill the first night which was outstanding. Then we opted for the seafood soup and seafood pasta the following night the most freshest seafood we've ever tasted beautiful. They take good care of you here and offer watermelon, grapes and Raki for free after your meal the views are out of this world and this made our unpleasant stay in a hotel near by very enjoyable. Would definitely give this place a visit if your in the area. Stunning. Thankyou a very happy customer :-)

We stayed in Agia Pelagia for 10 days and tried various different tavernas but kept going back to El Greco - it was the best food we ate all trip. The portions are very generous so we often had a couple of starters, a salad and just one main which was plenty. We would particularly recommend the prawns cooked in ouzo, the calamari and the stifado but all the food was excellent and authentic. The staff were extremely friendly and patient with my faltering Greek and we really enjoyed the live bouzouki music on the Monday. Other reviews said it was more expensive than other places but we didn't notice any difference in price when we ate a comparative menu elsewhere and because the dining area is raised up you get truly beautiful views out across the bay. If we go back to Crete it's the first place we'll go and we would heartily recommend it. Efcharisto poli, Alexandros!

I have only words of praise, good food, good prices, not to mention the waiter knew a few words in Romanian and was a pleasant atmosphere for us. I ate there several times, each time the food was fresh and tasty . I really recommand them :)

Food in here was amazing, accompanied by wonderfully friendly staff and live Greek music... definitely one of the favourites if our holiday.

Not so good experience as expected, too long waiting, small portions and above the average prices compared to the other restaurants.

Note that I haven't considered the fantastic beach front view as it is the same for all the restaurants here in Agia Pelagia (nice beach)!

Not recommended
