Olondi Restaurant is directly on the waterfront of the small town of Elounda in Southwestern Crete. We visited on the shoulder season in early May and the town was a little quiet. Don’t let that discourage you, it’s worth the visit. We took a taxi for an eight minute ride from the Porto Elounda... read more

The difficulty with reviews is that it is always subject to opinion, as are most things in life. This was our first visit to Olondi, a very pleasant waterfront location. After complimentary olives we had cheese pies and stuffed vine leaves as staters. The cheese pies were pleasant enough but the vine leaves were very tough and well down in... More

On a recent holiday in Elounda, we walked past this restaurant and saw the advertisement board for their "Fish Fantasia" for two people. We decided to try it that evening. It was a wonderful selection of mixed fish and seafood and it was simply out of this world! We enjoyed it so much that we dined there a couple of... More

After reading all the good reviews went here, the food was average. The service was very poor . The location on the water was all that was good.

Overlooking the bay, Olondi is one of the most attractive of many restaurants in Elounda, & the perfect place to have a long lunch or romantic dinner. The staff are very welcoming & entertaining, whilst also being efficient. We had the freshest grilled sea bream & a big plate of olive oil marinated vegetables washed down with a carafe of... More

We had a week in Elounda, and after going to the Olondi on the first night we went back several times for lunches and dinners. Every time the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and very attentive. There was great variety on the menu, but we especially loved trying the traditional greek food. The servings were generous and... More

We have been going to Elouda for quite a few years now and already have particular restaurants we dine in. Last year we decided to try others and this was one of them. We only went a couple of times but will be going back on our next visit. The food is lovely and the staff are very accommodating and... More
