I feel somewhat bad that there have been so many great reviews about this restaurant and I am about to disagree but so be it as it is how I feel. Maybe it is because we live near the sea in SW England and so are a little spoiled about fresh fish. We booked via our wonderful hotel 'Elounda Garden... More

We stayed for a week in Elounda and I think we ate at this restaurant maybe 6 times. Every meal was spectacular, from the garlic prawns, mussels, seafood risotto to the grilled sea bass, sardines...I could go on. The owner,Tassos, was charming and welcoming, the service and staff were excellent and the setting, unbeatable. Looking out onto natural beach and... More

I'm so thankful we stumbled across this place as it is off the beaten track. My husband and I are crazy for fish (thankfully Elounda is full of the delicious creatures!) but this place is truly incredible. We first stopped off for a drink because the location is so beautiful, I was thrilled to see they sold prosecco (at only... More

My husband and I have been enjoying holidays in Elounda for the past seven years, and always walk out to The Causeway at least once during our stay, and we have stopped off in previous years for drinks and a light lunch. Its in a beautiful setting, and perfect to sit and watch the boats go by, but I think... More

We were stopping down the road from this waterside restaurant and were told a lot of people don't go here because it too expensive but if your on holiday treat yourself, the good things in life cost money. The food was lovely and the place was spotlessly clean, the waiters were impeccably dressed and knew their stuff. The picture is... More

Kanali restaurant was beautiful, with wonderful food. We ate there twice during our 10 day stay at Elounda Island Villas a very short walk away and were made to feel very welcome both times. The food was amazing and the whole evening deliciously elegant and romantic.

The location is a little off the beaten path, but the scenery is breath taking. The service was friendly and quick. And the food...OMG! My bf and I had to go back twice, simply to have the steamed mussels again. I am from Boston, where I have had a lot of great seafood, but let me tell you, the mussels... More

I think this is a place you must visit if you're spending your vacation in Elounda. The location is perfect, just right to the sea. The service is gentle, friendly and discrete. The restaurant could look a bit too rough from far away but it's actually very elegant with its simplicity. The top is definitely the food quality. The best... More
