This family-run taverna is hugely popular and never fails to offer warmth and hospitality. Antonis will often be seen grilling meat to perfection on the charcoal barbeque or if you prefer your meat slow cooked from the oven, try the mouth watering Pork in Coriander Sauce or «Despina» Special Chicken cooked with curry sauce, mushrooms, pepper and onions. Fish is also a big feature on the menu and there are a huge range of meze to choose from, including a children`s menu. The fresh green «Despina» salad is a delicious accompaniment to their fish dishes of Red Mullet and Seabream. You will be pleasantly surprised when you get your bill, this taverna offers plenty to satisfy all tastes without costing you a fortune. Despina has an elevated position overlooking the beautiful bay of Elounda. At lunchtime it offers a cool and relaxing atmosphere and in the evening watch the speckle of lights around the bay. When the moon is full, grab yourself a front row seat to watch it glide up from behind Kolokithia island. A beautiful site indeed!
