We wondered where we were going to as the taxi took us out of the town towards Kanali. We need not have worried. Excellent food and friendly staff. Could happily have eaten here every night during our holiday in Elounda.

Book in advance and you won't be disappointed. We stayed and and at in the Elounda for a week and this is the best foodie place in the area. The fish and pasta dishes were superb. The setting is beautiful and they will pull the seafood right from the holding area in the river.

This was our favourite restaurant on our recent trip to Elounda. It's not so easy to find as it's out on the causeway, but well worth it when you do find it. The food is excellent - large portions, very fresh fish, just what you would be hoping for at a Greek restaurant, The location is amazing - beautifully situated... More

Fantastic location with really nice scenic views. Food is very good. Its a bit of the beaten track but the walk is pleasant. Plenty of seafood on the menu but if you don't see anything you like they will try to accommodate you so I've been told. The menu is great so I found something appetizing for me. You may... More

We stopped here for a late lunch on our way back from Kolokithia Beach. The setting is very picturesque and offers stunning views. I can understand why this restaurant is so popular as it has an extensive sea food menu and from the dishes being brought to other tables we could see that food was fresh and beautifully presented.

Loved this place, we visited after a staff member at our hotel recommended it. We shared a really large fish between 4 and it was lovely. We sat right by the water too and it was all very beautiful. Great choice of seafood and traditional dishes. Pleasant staff, couldn't have asked for more really!

We knew this to be a good seafood restaurant but went to check it out anyway. Food was excellent and staff was friendly. Recommended not just for their seafood that I have heard is excellent.
