We went to ferryman with a group of friends during our holidays in Crete. When we arrived there the owner had forgotten our booking and we didn't have a table. However he managed to accommodate us and although we had to wait a little bit he showcased his professionality by offering us for free all the starters and wine! The... More

There is nothing good to say about a restaurant when their front of house/owner/waiter is as rude and crass as this man. Initially the service was fine but after our main course we waited nearly an hour before I eventually went to complain that I had asked five different people for the dessert menu and still no-one came over. After... More

A bit pricier than other places in Elounda - but well worth it. An interesting menu with lots of thoughtful twists and additions to the typical Greek dishes. Beautiful views out to sea. I'd love to go back!

We thought we wouldn't have many dinning choices in Crete, however, little did we know! Quite a sophisticated menu in the unfussy town of Elounda. Just a few steps away from a busy main road we arrived at a little taverna over looking the lovely lake like Aegean Sea. The heavy breeze didn't deter our lovely evening dinning experience. The...

A brilliant setting, right on the edge of the sea, looking out towards spinalonga. Chose from the Cretan menu and went for mountain goat and rabbit. Both meals delicious and worth a try. Lovely starters of home Made bread and tsatsiki with fries courgettes. Delish!

What an experience, the food was exceptional and all staff, there were plenty of them, were friendly. The Chef is visible and it is entertaining watching him. The only disappointment was not all the menu was available, including some of the so called daily specials, but don't let that put you off, it is worthy of a visit.
