The secret is the experience ...

We are here since 1984

1981

How we started

It was autumn 1981 when our dad Tom went to Athens to arrangement the containers that came from Canada with our belongings when he met with a friend of him and decided to open a unique restaurant for Elounda: a pizzeria!

The place they found was away from the central but still had a great popularity with the locals.pizza and prawn pane were their best dishes.


1983

Our Experience Begins

Elounda started to grow and in 1983 they thought that it will be better to come closer to the square. In 1984 they found the place we are now established for over 30 years.The partnership separate but our dad continued his dream with his family: making pizza , spaghetti , Greek food and from the grill.


2018

Now we have grown up..

We have family of our own...and we follow what our father taught us: to satisfy as much as we can our clients!

There has been many changes to the place and to the menu trying to follow what he taught us:good quality,low prices and friendly inviroment.Welcome and meet us!

  •   I went to this restaurant twice in the same week! I highly recommend choosing the pizzas as they make it handmade with the dough and in a proper pizza oven. Best restaurant personally in Elounda. Service is very quick and polite.

      You always worry about returning to a restaurant after a few years, in case things have changed. No disappointment here. Excellent service and super food that is well presented. Never had a bad meal here. The pasta meals from the oven are superb.

  •   Much as we love Greek food, we wanted a change to something a little less rich one evening and had pizza at Porto Rino. Quite simply they were superb. Only reason for the 4 star rating is the number of noisy children in the place....More
