The setting is lovely and it's very off the beaten track. The fish we had was the worst we had in Elounda/Plaka, but I have a feeling we chose badly.

The location is worth 5 stars even without food! Its a lovely little drive. If you want to sit right beside the water be sure to make a reservation. We had a mix meze, garlic prawns and a fresh sea brass in salt fileted in front if us with fresh veggies. Its was delicious and an adventure for our kids... More

We have been here before but only for a drink after we have come off the beach and fancied a little walk. Situated a short walk across the causeway in a beautiful setting by the canal. We decided to stay for a light lunch this time and were not disappointed. The food was fabulous. Myself, husband, DS & DD chose... More

We were almost the only people at 12 ish. Perhaps this is why they did not mind serving us some appetizers. Other people have mentioned that they are only interested in big spenders and I have got this impression on previous visits when we just wanted a drink. Anyway, food was very nice and there was enough for all 4... More

We turned up with no reservation - not a problem, table made up inside in minutes. Ordered octopus & prawns in garlic, superb. Then salt baked sea bass which was succulent, perfectly cooked & served at our table. Wine was lovely & recommended by staff & not the most expensive on the menu. Lovely atmosphere & situation. Can only recommend.

The restaurant Kanali is situated in the most picturesque location facing the Elounda bay, where you can enjoy the delicious plates they have with an amazing and relaxing view. The restaurant has simple decoration, white colors, which fits perfectly the sea view. It is very clean and well preserved. We use to come here every time we visit Elounda because... More

It does take a little effort to find this restaurant but many of the locals recommend it for seafood and understandably so. Reservations are needed in peak season. Parking is available on site and we drove from the nearby town of Agios Nikolaos - it took 10 minutes. The welcome and service are very good. The menu, as expected, is... More

The setting is beautiful! With our first dinner we were lucky to get a table at last minute. We really enjoyed our dinner so much just to go back the next day to book a table for the following Saturday, this time specifically asking for a table at the window/water's edge. We were the first table to be booked in... More

We love this restaurant. Great to return this year and the food is still good. Superb location right on the canal with no other restaurants nearby. The food was amazing, the staff are friendly. Our favourite restaurant in the area, lunch time or evening, arriving by car or boat! Can't wait to visit next time!
