Excellent family run restaurant

Great place for family's and couples of any age. Fantastic food and service, right on the sea so you can watch the sun go down on an evening over the harbor.

We went here for dinner the first night of our holiday. What a warm welcome we had, treated as old friends even though it was our first visit. We arrived very early evening and we were offered a lovely table by the waiter. Had a great leisurely meal, enjoying the views as darkness fell. Starters of vine leaves and village... More

Lovely setting, right on the seafront. Friendly and helpful staff. A selection of veggie main courses, including gemistas and briam, as well as the usual meze. We had the plate of mixed vegetables which was really delicious with half a dozen different dishes to try. The wine was good and the free dessert and raki were excellent. Highly recommended for...

After a visit to Spinalonga island we stopped off in Elounda on our way back to Aghios Nikolaos to have a walk around and, hopefully, lunch. We chose this restaurant as it was away from the crowds and its position out onto the sea was lovely. My husband chose the beef stifado and myself, the lamb kleftiko - absolutely wonderful.... More

Lovely sea-view restaurant. Each time we go to this restaurant we are not disappointed. We have been to Elounda 4 times and each time we spend at least one night at this restaurant. My favourite meal is the Stamna, delicious. Booked again for next year and we will be visiting Poulis once again.

Visited for lunch and had the Chef's salad and homous. The salad was less than good and the service from the older waiter left a lot to be desired. The younger waiter was attentive and pleasant though. Not much to go on food wise but with so many good restaurants around we won't be going back.

One of the many seafront restaurants on the way into Elounda. We had the Souvlaki and Greek stew. Food was ok and the service was ok but nothing to get excited about.They forgot to bring a drink we had ordered and their response was slow to our repeated request. With such a large choice in Elounda would not go back.

Have been coming to Elounda for a few years and each time look forward to returning to this restaurant. Harris is always very friendly and welcoming and always ensures each visit is enjoyable. There's no better location in Elounda for a romantic meal!

We just wanted a simple fish lunch by the waterside and couldn't have chosen better. Wonderful location - literally right by the water -friendly owner, relaxed ambience, lovely fresh food and good local wine. Highly recommended
