The reviews on Tripadvisor for this restaurant are generally positive, so I'm not sure whether we went on an off night or were just unlucky. It wasn't a particularly busy night when we ate at the Olondi, but we were squashed into a small and rickety table that wasn't really suitable for four (two adults and two teenagers) and made...

homely, casual. Not the tourist trap it looks like. I had beautiful sea bass and the side dish of vegetables included a yummy stuffed pepper that was clearly made with love.

We did not book a place, so chose Olondi just because it looked nice. We liked the service and location...and eventually had one of the best meals we had in Crete.
