Great food, service and views

We visited Olondi during a day trip to Elounda. Amazing food, polite and happy owner / waiters. Beautiful views of the sea and village. A great experience. My Moussaka was the best I have ever tasted !!! Family note, toilets very clean :) my wife and I plus two young girls loved it here. Thanks !

Eating here was not a culinary experience. The waiters, all old school were charming and pleasant but the food was reminiscent of Greece in the 1980's. Kleftiko, in a bag, greasy with over cooked tasteless veg, moussaka so solid just a few mouthfuls fills you up completely. I think we ve been spoilt by the small independents who care about... More

This has to be in my top three restaurants in Elounda. I can't fault it. The food, service and staff are impeccable. I like how they remember us year after year too.

The waiters made a fuss of our 2 daughters and the menu was a solid all round traditional Cretan/Greek fare. We enjoyed what we ordered, the stuffed courgette flower was a highlight, as we'd not had those before. We didn't manage to finish everything because we had ordered too much food, perhaps the waiter could have given us a little... More

So many restaurants to choice from in the small town of elounda, and the reviews are so mixed we decided after much debate and viewing many menus to stop at the olondi restaurant on the harbour front. A good decision it turned out, the menu has something for everyone even the most picky child can be satisfied. We started with... More

The setting is really good by the harbour and the staff were very good, efficient and friendly especially to the children who loved this restaurant. Food was good without being outstanding but well worth a visit.

There are a number of excellent restaurants and tavernas in Elounda, enough to satisfy everyone's needs, but the Olondi Restaurant was simply the best for us! We ate there five out of seven nights and every time was simply superb! I am a very fussy eater, no red meats for me, but nothing was too much trouble for who I... More

So many times we have visited The Olondi, and every time again, we're professionaly served delicious dishes. Today we had the snails, octopus with potatoes, mussels and clams. Raki, ouzo and local rose wine. Just for lunch. What a heavenly experience it was. Kostas, Achilles and Yannis (owner) are never pushy, give you the best advice and make sure you... More
