Fabulous experience

Faultless evening, fresh beautifully prepared food by friendly owners who clearly care about what they offer customers, I doubt there is any better in Elounda.

During our week in Elounda, we ate twice at the Ferryman and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service. The owners were very friendly and helpful in choosing what to order. The location is fantastic and I really recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

We ate here May 2015, the food and service were great, very tasty and fresh and easily the best meal we had in Crete. A decent wine list too and lovely to eat by the harbour. Would definitely go back if we were ever in Elounda again

One of the great delights of a Greek island holiday is a traditional evening meal on the harbour front, watching the fish in the clear waters and the hustle and bustle of the locals and visiting tourists all around you. All this to the accompaniment of street musicians and singers. Competition for your custom is intense, and the Ferryman continually... More

We first visited The Ferryman last summer, after reading very good reviews on this website. It did not disappoint. Every dish was superb. The food was excellent. The desserts exceptional. We returned this year and again was blown away by the quality of the food. All is right in the world again! Thank you Aki and family and the cooking... More

We had lunch here on local recommendation and it was absolutely delicious! Everything is fresh and made by hand. We had the grilled Fresh Fish of the day (sea bream) stuffed with herbs and it was to die for. By far, the best fish I've had. We also had the delicious souvlaki and the really amazing baklava with handmade ice... More

I had read a trip advisor review of The Ferryman and we saved it until our last night, and it was worth the wait! We sat outside looking over the sea watching all the fish. We asked the waitress (owner) to recommend our dishes and took her sound advice. The most delicious fish i have ever eaten! Well worth booking... More
