Food in Elounda

Elounda has some lovely authentic Greek restaurants and the food is home cooked and delicious. We managed to go to three that are easily accessible from Elounda town and have reviewed these below.

This is a small Greek restaurant near Elounda bay. The food is very authentic and absolutely scrumptious. True taste of Mediterenean cuisine.

Taverna Vachus Exterior

This is a lovely restaurant located in Elounda village. The service is great and staff are very helpful and friendly. 
However, the food was disappointing. It was very average and catered for tourists. Some dishes were good while others very average
Hit and miss sort of place.
