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.

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.

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.

There is only one reason to eat here and that is the view. Food is nothing special (a lot more is expected in Crete), meals are medium-sized and a bit overpriced. Service is ok.

Adjacent to the Elafonisi village accommodation, this taverna offers probably the best scenic view of the Elafonisi coast. We visited this taverna for lunch, dinner and breakfast. Overall, the food quality and quantity was from moderate to good and we left with a positive feeling about the place. Regarding the standard Greek dishes, the Panorama was slightly more expensive than... More

When nature is extraordinary and someone has the chance to open the only bar restaurant on this view, don't expect quality on food so better to have a drink and use your camera or telephone to send photos to people at home.

First of all the view is breathtaking, From the first look it seemed like a tourist tavern, and nothing more to expect. I have to say that the food was very good, freshly prepared and delicious. Decent size of portions, of a pork stake, Souvlaki and very fresh fish. The horiatiki salad had a soft Cretan cheeze, not feta, which... More

We had our lunch here because it was lunch time and we were having a great time at the beach (that is probably the reason why most people have lunch or dinner here). The menu was very short and all the food was ready made. It was ok, but surely what we were used to on Crete. The view though... More

Came for 1 day and stayed 3! That says it all. We stayed in Chania, Falisarna then drove down to Elafonissi to see the beach. Wow! Fantastic. Liked it so much that we stayed 3 days! Ate in the Panorama Restaurant for breakfast and dinner for 3 days. No complaints, good fresh food and traditional Greek, which was great as... More
