This was a meal I will remember forever. Unbelievable food, setting and hospitality. The owner has been working there his entire life and knows how to make guests feel comfortable and looked after. The food was fresh and traditional, but elevated.

We were really impressed with the Ferryman, the food was lovely, the atmosphere great and the staff friendly and attentive. There are so many run of the mill, outdated and uninspiring restaurants in the area, all with the same tired menu and presentation from the 70's. The Ferryman was a welcome change and the best food we had whilst staying... More

We went to Elounda for our Honeymoon in June and we were recommended the Ferryman by several people staying at our resort. We told the staff we were on our honeymoon and they gave us the 'the most romantic table' and treated us like royalty! We were only on a short 5 night break but the food and the overall... More

From the beginning on the Ambiente and the service were awesome. We got very fast our starter and during the meal 3 greetingdishes from the kitchen for free. Everything was delicious from the homemadebread over the main course to the dessert. After this amazing dinner- no hunger for the next year anymore ;-) - I had to ask if they... More

Superb food with deep and surprising flavours. Pasta sublime. Slow food which is nice for a change, the staff aren't ignoring you! They are giving you space. A must visit and do not forget the dessert, fusion versions of local favourites OMG. Book for tables at the waters edge, or swing by a little later, there's no hurry.

An evening meal watching the full moon rise with attentive service and excellent food. More pricey than others but worth the money. The fired haloumi cheese was the best I've ever tasted.

Ferryman delivers on all levels: delicious food, fresh ingredients, great service and a beautiful setting (practically in the water). The grilled seabass and aromatic salad were some of the highlights.

This restaurant is in a different .3 Homemade bread to start before a twist on the usual greek starters in the best way. Any negative comments I would assume come from those that want the basic trad greek food. Service great from a husband and wife team .Halomoui with fig jam and fresh dolmades were a cut above the average... More

It was fine. Our chauffer to the hotel had pointed it out, and the hotel recomended it, BUT it was OK. Nothing wrong but not great. The menu was not fantastic. The booked table was right at the far end just hanging by the water edge (romantic) but not a position that the staff took any notice of. They spent... More

This restaurant is a lovely Taverna on the quayside with lovely views out to sea. We were warmly welcome, looked after well for the duration of the meal. When you order one of their specialities the actual chef who has cooked the dish brings it to the table himself which is a lovely touch
