Very disappointed that Periyali is closed this year due to unexpected family illness but have been assured that will reopen next year so look forward to eating here again

We tried a variety of meat, lamp chops, pork and veal steaks were amazing. At the end they offered a nice local desert yogurt with house made... More

Traditional Cretan food at very reasonable prices. The chap here apparently owns a local butchers so you only get great quality meat. Yes , that exactly what we had had - lovely food - you are sat overlooking the sea and Elounda bay and the variety of food is excellent, we even tried snails .. not everyone's cup of tea... More

This was our second successive visit to Elounda and this time round we tried to mostly visit tavernas that we didn't try last year, which obviously included this one. I'm glad we did as it was very good, more authentic and dare I say more basic than most, but it was definitely none the worst for it. When I say... More

We were recommended Perigiali by a local, so I carried out a preliminary check. I was welcomed with a large Mythos and meze, just for going in to find out more about the place. We returned the following evening at 8.30 pm to find we were the only guests - that soon changed as it got later in the evening.... More
