During our last visit to Elounda we did not pass-by Ferryman tavern. First we had a lunch there and just before our leaving Elounda we decided to have a good dinner. I should say we enjoyed both our visits.. Dakos, village salad, kleftiko and, of course, seafood and fish - everything was delicious. Akis and his team are real artists.... More

I never normally write reviews , however this was the best food we had in Elounda . We stumbled across the restaurant and thank goodness we did! Gorgeous starters especially the tomato balls , and the most wonderful sea bass. My husband is a vegetarian and said the chick pea dish was the most delicious dish of chickpeas he had... More

A table may need booking before you arrive at this restaurant, but it will be worth it. You will get reasonably priced, good food and it will be well presented. I would recommend this for service and food.

This restaurant was in a lovely location over looking the sea and the food which was served to us was very fresh. The atmosphere was great and it was very busy I would advise to get there around 7 to get a table or you may be disappointed.

We ate here twice in one week. The food was fabulous, the house wine the best we had all week, and we were provided with free dips, dessert and glass of wine. Owners were very nice without being over friendly. Would be the first restaurant I would return to if back in Elounda.

Ferryman serves heart warmingly delicious food. The restaurant is run by a charming family complete with rough around the edges but golden-hearted Akis and the charmingly beautiful Parisian wife. If you're lucky the kids will be there too for a little bit. The Place: Along the waters in Elounda, with the other restaurants in the area. Restaurant def feels nicer... More

This restaurant would be receiving an excellent rating following my first visit as I had a delicious meat stifado. We returned for a second visit and I recommended this to my husband and he was equally impressed. The meal I wanted wasn't available so the waitress suggested a lamb dish. However this was very rich and fatty and I dropped... More

We ate here for my husband's birthday. Took pot luck with this as our choice was closed for the winter. What luck! Starters included really crisp and succulent calamari, dolmades and bread with tomatoes and local cheese. Generous potions. Followed by moussaka for two of us and lamb falling off the bone. Good bottle of Sauvignon blanc, beer, raki and... More

Wonderful home made food prepared with care and thought - salad leaves picked from local farms of their friends'. Starters of fresh tzatziki, babaganoush, soft warm pittas, halloumi with mint leaves & fig jam were just the beginning of a really lovely supper. Whole family loved what they had ordered and the children very happy. Knowledgeable and charming service. It's... More
