In general, we have never had a bad meal in Elounda. What we liked most about Olondi, was in addition to a good Greek menu, they had a good selection of international dishes as well, for ones that are looking for one of there fav`s, or just to be different. We enjoyed the good food, the view, and the service,... More

Came here on a day excursion to Elounda from Ag. Nikolaus and stumbled across this lovely restaurant after a long hike out to the Venetian saltpans. Service was phenomenal (especially for a solo traveler), food was delicious, and the view was peaceful.

Once more, we were impressed by the personal service of the most friendly staff. The view is great and food is also very good, especially local dishes (snails, lamb with artichokes or beef with aubergines and cheese). A highlight were the freshly cooked dolmadakia, some with wine leafs and some with zuchetti blossoms. Simply the beat we ever had!

We had lunch and dinner here on numerous occasions and were never disappointed. The food is to die for and view of the coast line is breath taking. We were particularly pleased that although the staff were very friendly “Hello Costas” they weren’t overly friendly as they can be in some other places we ate at. We’ve already booked our... More

Great food and great views. I had the lamb with artichokes and recommend it. It can get a bit breezy along the waterfront but Olundi is more sheltered than some of the other restaurants in this area.

Overlooking water and Spinalonga. Lovely fresh food, good service and a great stopping point on the walk back to our apartment. Try the Olondi omelette......

We had an excellent meal here, the sea bass was beautifully cooked, very good octopus, all round the food and wine was excellent. the service was slow, it was 15 minutes before we could order a drink, and a further half hour for the food. But the staff were nice, and like most of the restaurants we visited offered us... More

We dined here twice during a recent stay and it was a very enjoyable experience on both occasions. The outdoor dining area is under cover and offers a picturesque view across the bay at Elounda. Each time the service was excellent - very friendly and welcoming. The food was also very nice and the value for money was good -... More

We ate at Olondi on two occasions, the first we were given a great seat on a lovely old couch, the second time we were given a table, near the entrance, set for 4 but really two -3 at a push (hence they brought a side table). Gluten free food was generally understood. Being right on the sea the Fish/seafood... More
