We have just returned to Elounda for the third year running, and came here on our first night because it is simply the best restaurant. Incredibly good food and service, in a wonderful setting.

Visited for dinner on our last night. The staff were accommodating and the food was very very good. It was on par price wise with other restaurants in Elounda.

Tasty food at a very nice place; good and quick service; the burger (mpifteki) and their melissos salad were great!

Came here for an evening meal. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the setting is lovely. I chose to have moussaka for my meal and was slightly disappointed as when the plate was set down in front of me, it was a plate with a square of moussaka in the middle of it. Now I'm not that fussy but... More

Lovely view etc. They all have this though. Anyway food was tasty but a bit short on portion size. Great service and "free raki". But why do owners allow the guy with the bag of tat ie. cigarette lighters, squirting toilet shaped water pistols etc come into the restaurant to bother you? Do they get a percentage or do they...

After checking into our apartment fairly late, we went straight out for something to eat and the Melissos restaurant was the first we came to. Minutes later we were sitting at an idyllic table overlooking the water and enjoying our first beautifully cooked meal of the holiday. We visited another four times during our stay as we liked it so... More

This is a nice place to site, with great views, and comfortable chairs. The food was mixed. Seafood pasta had good fresh seafood on top, but horrible overcooked and/or frozen mixed in. Cheese pies were clearly frozen (but still nice). Souvlaki was tough and dry, but it usually is. Generous free puddings and raki.

Ate here twice during our holiday in Elounda last August. Although staying close to this restaurant we passed here every night when we went out to dinner but we were very tired one night and didn't want to go far. How glad we were. The kleftico was the best we had tasted. Service was excellent and to top it all... More
