Regrettably, The Elongata taverna on the beach closed down in September 2006. Maria had left in late 2005 to have her baby, the taverna was taken over by an Italian family and I'm afraid the food was not up to much at all. On top of that they had the worst behaved young boy who annoyed the customers with his whistle blowing every moment of the day. I think they had bought it to stop his constant crying and shouting. When Maria and her husband ran it we had lunch there every day and a few evening meals as well. We don't know if Maria will be back there but we hope and pray that she will be. The meals we had then were great and the views of the sun-sets were a magnificent sight. I will give an update when we return after our June holiday. Peter Pan of Acharavi.
Elongata is a Taverna / Beach bar on Acharavi Beach, open from early morning the restaurant serves meals throughout the day and into the night. The menu is varied featuring a number of Greek specialties hard to find elsewhere.
An ideal location for a cool drink in the shade or an evening meal with great sunset views and of course Maria's cactus garden which gives the restaurant it's name.
