A very pleasant and tasty meal with stunning views across the bay to the island of Spinalonga a must visit, Elounda is a small coastal town with plenty to see, many eateries to suit most.

Lovely location and great food. What made it stand out for us was the staff. Kostas is a first class waiter and very personable. His moustached colleague is happy and efficient. The owner came over to us for a chat, we were his last customers of the season. Our daughters aged 8 & 6 asked to go back for our... More

Next to the harbour in Elounda. Lovely home baked food - mamma's meatballs were fab and the prawns. Fish directly fished each day by the owner.

Like many restaurants in Elounda The Olondi is situated next to the sea so perfect setting in which to enjoy some good Greek food. Friendly owner who chatted to us as we were passing at lunch time and remembered us when we returned in the evening. Very refreshing too that in Elounda nobody 'hounds' you to eat at their establishment... More

We were driving through Elounda after a boat trip to Spinalonga. There were lots of places to pick and many were busier than this restaurant but we were drawn to this restaurant - what an excellent choice! We went for a traditional Greek dish and the fish platter - absolutely delicious. If we hadn't been staying an hours drive away... More
