We were really looked after at Ferryman, even though we didn't have a booking we were immediately given a table with wine and meze while we waited to be then given a beautiful table right by the waters edge. Food was all of a really high standard, so even my picky partner who is a chef loved every mouthful. Especially... More

All of the tables on the sea front were taken but we got a table on its own in front of the kitchen which was a great seat as you could see everything happening in front of you across the road. Sounds and smells from the outdoor kitchen were amazing. Food was outstanding. Mountain goat was beautiful. Slightly more expensive... More

Recommended by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. Had a wonderful relaxed lunch with food which really has an edge. The Haloumi with fig jam was delicious as was the Tsatsiki and the home baked bread was first class. We then had a wonderful Moussaka and the chicken salad with Purslane in Yogurt with fruit. Loved it. Don't go if... More

We have just returned after our 5th holiday in Elounda over the last 10 years. On each holiday we have eaten at the Ferryman, as well as other Tavernas in Elounda. The quality of the food at the Ferryman (and other Tavernas) has improved over the years. But this year the Ferryman was a clear winner in terms of consistently... More

Bit disappointing after all the hype. Did not meet expectations. Food not out of the ordinary and service a bit offhand.
