Visited olondi on a few occasions in September and October. Everything on the menu is delicious. The wine is amazing and you are always made very welcome. Prices are reasonable and big portions. The views are to die for and remember to book aug and sept as they do get busy. Love this place see you all in April!

Having a passion for Crete, Elounda and the Creten locals, and also having lived in this beautiful part of Crete some may call me biased, and maybe I am but I couldn't be a member on trip advisor without reviewing The Olondi Restaurant in Elounda, sitting only inches from the warm Crystal clear waters of the Mirabello Bay. After a... More

We used to walk past this restaurant every day on holiday and thought we'd try it for a special anniversary meal. What a good choice! The fish platter was excellent. Iannis, Kostas and the rest of the staff all brilliant and we went back several times during the rest of the holiday. Highly recommended and make sure to try the... More

The owner is friendly and has a wealth of local knowledge, ask him about the various interesting photos he has on the walls. All depicting family members and historical occasions. The restauraunt is on the... More

We walked along the small strip of restaurants in Elounda one lunchtime whilst holidaying at the Domes just up the road..and then came by the Olondi. You look at the Olondi and it has a very welcoming inviting feel. We were welcomed by a waiter named Costa and we could choose our own table. The view from the table over... More

This truly was the most amazing meal we had in Elounda. We were staying all inclusive but wanted to eat local as well and wow what a find. The service, the amazing meal, dessert, view this restaurant has the whole package.

Best meal we had all holiday and a very friendly welcome from owners and staff. Great location on the waterside. DO NOT leave Crete until you have eaten here at least once!

The food and service here is excellent. Yiannis and Fortuni provide a very attentive service. Our Polish dining companion Magda ordered the Calamari Romana and although I was more than happy with my Village Chicken I must admit I was looking longingly at her dish which she said was cooked to perfection. This is a rarity as chefs invariably overcook... More

What a fantastic restaurant! We received the warmest of Greek welcomes and the staff were so polite and attentive throughout the evening without overdoing it. We were simply left to enjoy our meal but they were always ready in the background to respond to further orders for drinks etc.. We had ordered the Leg Of Lamb 24 hours earlier, as... More
