Seats outside are right on the waters edge (and I mean right one the waters edge!) but the night we were eating it was very windy so they reserved us a table upstairs on their balcony. Romantic with gorgeous views. Food was excellent and a complimentary taste of olives, local cheese and cheese pies with honey was appreciated. Good musicians... More

The rating for the Restauarnt is a little unfair, it should be at least in the top 5. We ate at Ergospasio on two occasions. The restaurant, is a little away from the main Restaurant area of the town and as such can be a little quite. Once you've found it but I'm sure like us you"ll be back. Service... More

Could only pay by cash. The food was very good and we did not mind the time in between courses. We arrived early evening and had no problem getting a table. The amuse bouche was a nice touch.

The service is so slow, you place your order and only half turns up first time. And have fun trying to catch the waiters attention you could be in for a long wait plus the prices are a bit high for what you get. I don't normally complain but this is a nono for us.

We had an amazing night full of wonderful tastes and aromas. Everything is freshly made, the service is very good and the spot just in front of the water of the gulf of Elounda is brilliant. Located in a beautiful former carob processing plant of Elounda in an amazing stone made building, a remarkable example of cretan folk architecture the... More

Excellent food, we both had the sea bass. We began with traditional Greek starters, but the meal effectively came as a package with lots of really nice extras very elegantly presented. We settled for the local house wine and it was very acceptable. The whole meal was exceptional value for money. A lot of people like the balcony seating we... More

Excellent menu, varied with good choice of meat and fish dishes. Real attention to detail, such as fish knives, pasta forks and beautiful wine glasses that accompanied an excellent wine list. We had very attentive service from someone who took great pride in every aspect of what they did. We sat out on the upstairs terrace and moved downstairs to... More

We liked it so much we came back 3 times during our week's holiday. We ate down by the water's edge twice (very romantic) and upstairs on the covered balcony. Yes, it is more expensive but the meals are a cut above the other waterside restaurants in Elounda. We particularly enjoyed: mushroom and chicken risotto (flavoured with ouzo?), pork fillet... More

Being frequent visitors to Elounda we have watched this restaurant over the years and finally tried it this year. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. I do blame myself in part as I should have read the menu properly first before entering. I am allergic to shell fish and, if this is the case for you, there is very little else... More
