In the back streets of the old town is Ela Taverna.
The sun was shining and this taverna was in a prime position with postcard views.
We decided to stop for a bite to eat and a glass of wine.
Tzatziki with fresh bread to start, two yummy moussaka's and a couple of glasses of vino later and we were well impressed with this lunch spot.
The taverna itself has lots of history to read about in the menu and plenty of tables with good toilet facilities. Service was faultless.
Great lunchtime spot, especially when soaking up the sun!

Really lively, energetic taverna, great for big groups. Beautiful setting with the open roof, very pretty and picturesque venue.
Very accommodating when we asked if we could BYO (tonnes of leftover wine from our wedding!) and very happy to cater for our large group. Good service, tasty food - so much to choose from! - and very reasonably priced.

Almost all dishes we ate we're seriously not great. Meat balls in appetisers were of the worst i had, their most expensive salad consisted of just lettuce a bit of grated cheese and a few sundried tomatoes with a dressing that was not mixed in salad well. I could go on. The only decent dish that was tasty and actually nice were their lamb chops. Overpriced. The staff on the other hand were very friendly and very curtious. 5 star for staff and location, 2 star for food. Its a shame. We wont be back.
