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.

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.

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.

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.
