Great view but the service wasn't great

We rented a room at the Panorama hotel for 1 night. The room was clean and fine, nothing special though. The restaurant has a great view and the food is fine. We weren't to happy about the service though. We think the prices are too high for what you get, if you compare it to other places in Crete.

I seem to have a very different experience to most people here. I popped in the restaurant for a drink and a cake, I was served immediately. The waitress were polite and kind and allowed me to keep my backpack there for the day, which was a huge relief . Later I was approached by another staff member if I... More

The only thing going for this 'restaurant' (if it can even be called that) was the view and locality to the fabulous elafonissi beach! We took a seat, were given a very limited menu of possibly ten dishes to be told that only 2 of which were available: the tzatziki and the goats cheese. I chose the tzatziki and can... More

We chose the restaurant because near the beach. it is a tourist place, so we waited for the waiter. We eated two moussakas. Big portion but few flavour. The place in my opinion is ok for a beer, just for a beer.

We stayed one night at the hotel here which was ok and not too badly priced really. On arrival we were told that because of the strong winds that the credit card option for paying was down, I thought ok, we will pay in the morning, after we checked into our room my wife told me that the staff demanded...

We popped in to Panorama on our way to an afternoon on Elafonissi beach and enjoyed a delicious lunch with very friendly service. The menu came, but the waiter recommended the day's special - the seafood plate (for 2 to share), which sounded right up our street. We added a Greek salad to the order and were hugely satisfied with... More

We stopped for lunch on the way back from Elafonisi Beach. We might as well have eaten at the beach. The pastitsio was presented is a traditional clay pot - very cute - and tasted like dirt without any bechamel sauce but with burnt cheese on top. My biftekia were dry and tasteless but after a bit of coaching my... More

Very nice setting, great view, and Unlike the other reviews we had great food experience The see food was excellent, the grilled octopus especially. Bit slow service when it got full, but nothing to get mad about. Definitely recommended if you wanna escape the heat from Elafonisi and grab a lunch.

The taverna has a ponaromic view of elafonisi . The food is fresh and the portion big enough. Taste the cooked meals! The service is excellent, kostas the owner of the taverna is very helpful. The view is amazing and the prices are reasonable. I reccommend it. It is the best taverna in elafonisi.

After spending an afternoon walking the beautiful pink sands of the Elafonisi Beach, the Panaroma Restaurant offers a breezy place to cool down while overlooking the beaches. The roasted pork and the grilled fish were excellent.
