We had lunch here and it was lovely - the food appeared to be home cooked and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was very reasonably priced and we were given free dessert which was some Cretan orange cake which was absolutely delicious - a really nice touch.

We ate here on our last day in Elounda and wished we had visited previously. We were staying next door at the lovely Akti Oulous so we tended to walk our for our evening meal rather than visit a restaurant on the doorstep. However on our last day we wanted to eat in our hotel restaurant The BlueSea as we... More

I am lucky enough to live in Elounda but this is one of our favourite restaurants, tourist season or not. The food is amazing and always something a little different on the menu. I'm not going to tell anyone my favourite as it may sell out next time I want it :-). The kleftiko is the best around

Fabulous choice and cooked beautifully . We ate here 4times and you could not fault anything at all . The service and people are great and we particularly enjoyed the courgette flowers ,octopus and kleftico but everything was good. The view is wonderful . Go with a good appetite as the portions are big .

We had dinner here twice during our week's stay. Plenty of choice on the menu, food was plentiful and a very high standard. The owners were particularly friendly / helpful and nothing was too much trouble. With a picture postcard setting...I would not hesitate to recommend.

We visited this restaurant in May 14 and October 13. The owner is a friend of my family from many years ago as we visited Elounda on a regular basis for our annual summer holiday. The food is fantastic quality for the price and our meal here was a welcome change from our all inclusive hotel. Recommend the prawns!

On a jetty over the sea with great views. The service was prompt and efficient and the food was very good. We'll worth a visit.
