Local taverna not to be missed! Friendly and excellent food. Unpretentious, inexpensive and delicious!!

I have been visiting Crete for many years now, and discovered Elia in 2006 out of luck. It is a family run business run by Yiannis and Eleutheria. It is one of those rare places where the owners care about quality and and customer satisfaction above everything else. The food here is home made and as fresh as can be... 更多
