First: do not check it up on google maps / tripadvisor's direction. It's not where it is shown, but rather ask your concierge for the correct direction. The view on Elounda beach, old wind mills and having an ancient basilica's mosaic floor next to the tavern make it a good place to visit. We had a variety of mezze and... More

We had been recommended this restaurant and popped along this afternoon to book our table. We were glad we had as otherwise we wouldn't have got in as all tables were reserved. The service was very good and the setting was to die for. The table settings were nice with quality tableware and napkins etc. the waiter recommended a mix... More

Locals had told us to visit here, which we did for a leisurely lunch. We walked there as we were staying locally and were welcomed and looked after efficiently. The restaurant sits on the edge of the bay next to the lost underwater city of Olos. We weren't overly hungry but wanted to try the seafood so we ordered a... More

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
