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.

Being brought up on the coast makes me realise fish tastes its best when eaten there. I heard that the Kanali restaurant specialised in fish dishes. This is a place that bay easily be missed.

This wonderful restaurant is located at the end of the salt flat road, just past the three windmills on the right as you head towards the little church on the headland of Kolykithia. It will take about ten minutes to walk from the main road junction by the Hargospatio restaurant, but there is ample parking if you are driving. The... More

We visited this restaurant on 3 occasions during our recent stay in Elounda, once for lunch and twice for Dinner and all were fabulous. It is situated at the end of the causeway from Elounda to Kolokathi so is a nice stroll each way. It looks so romantic and authentic set on it's own almost in the ocean. The choice... More

Worth the effort to find. Open air site on the end of the causeway perhaps best in fine weather. Very fresh local fish cooked to perfection and served with local vegetables. Not like your average taverna in the town.
