The best food in Eolunda

I have been here so many times over the years, and I have never been disappointed. Fantastic prices, amazing fresh seafood and great variety. The owners are fantastic and incredibly friendly. Would recommend highly

We ate here after pestering from the guy outside. The fresh fish looked good, so we thought we'd give it a bash. I had the scorpion fish (quite unusual) and my wife had the bream...both were well cooked but the meal came to nearly 85 euros. I felt we were hoodwinked a little with the price of the fresh fish...

We came here every day during our week in elounda. Our table was right on the edge next to the sea. It was fantastic to sit with a nice cold beer or a cocktail chatting and listening to the sea and looking at the amazing view. The staff were lovely and friendly and we were greeted like friends. The food... More

Whilst staying all inclusive at Elounda Blu we ventured in to Elounda Harbour and visited Poulis as a result of a recommendation in a DK Guide. Couldn't have been happier with the decision as from start to finish the hospitality of staff was first rate and the food was excellent. We spent all evening here taking courses at our leisure...

We ate at 'poulis' most days , the food is wonderful and cheap. Arris was the perfect host. Informative about the menu and chatty. Both he and the others serving were friendly and professional and it was apparent they enjoyed their work. We highly recommend visiting poulis when on your trip to elounda. We will be back

The location was lovely, by the waterfront. Service from Haris and other staffs was excellent. Food was lovely and fresh, especially the Calamari for starter was so fresh. Main courses were good as well. Good portion size. A very good meal.

Having been to Elounda a couple of years before, and having eaten in Poulis on three occasions, we knew exactly where we wanted to have our wedding meal, having got married overlooking Spinalonga at Domes of Elounda. We spoke with the owner Haris and explained that we wanted our guests to have a real Greek experience throughout the menu. He... More

The kleftico was microwaved and was still cold when served... they took it away to nuke it a bit more. Irritating because I asked the waiter before I ordered if it was cooked traditionally in a clay oven, so he obviously lied. Stay away if you don't want food cooked in a microwave.
