By far the most beautiful restaurant in Elounda. We went here 2 years ago and are going back in June 2015. We hired a boat for the day and discovered Kanali, so moored up and went in for lunch. We then walked back one evening and had a huge salt baked seabass. They set it alight on our table before... More

The first 3 visits we made to Kanali about 3 and 4 years ago we had a lovely meal and felt really welcome and relaxed. Now it has changed to a fish restaurant and stipulate they only sell fish dishes it seems as though its just looking for up market custom. The meal we had was nice enough but a... More

I went for a walk over the causeway and discovered this by chance. We went that night and enjoyed our meal. It's a little walk away - maybe 10-15 mins. The restaurant was in a lovely location with the sea lapping beside us. The staff were very attentive and the restaurant was pretty full. The dishes are all fish -... More

This is the second year that we have been back to Kanali, and it is still excellent for lunch. We have intended to try it out in the evening, but its always fully booked, which undoubtedly speaks for itself. The staff are as attentive as ever, the location is wonderfully relaxing, and the best bit is watching the boats trying... More

Kanali is beautifully situated resturant by the narrow canal between the bay of Elounda and the sea. It is a bright, well presented restaurant where the service is good and the atmosphere is warm and tranquil, even though it is only 1 kilometer from the busy town of Elounda. We were a party of 8, but the staff coped very... More

Lovely views and being a bit further away from the rest of the waterfront makes it a more peaceful setting. The food is good though a bit more pricey than some places. They have a few dishes cooked at the table to add a bit excitement with flaming salt crusts. The fish platter was good with generous portions.
