“Just delightfull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We kept passing by this restaurant and thought no more about it...looked on the expensive side which is not a problem but we normally end up disappointed when the fixtures and fittings end up better than the food. This was not the case, four of us decided to take the plunge and sat down for a late dinner.

The service is not rushed and the food was superb, truly tasty and wholesome the chefs certainly take pride in what they do here. You can tell everything is as fresh as it can possibly be and that is borne out in the mouthwatering taste sensation that went on.

They make their own bread and in out team had a master baker who gave it a 10 out of 10 A Carob bread apparently. It is not cheap but good quality never is and we had no problem paying the asking price for what was a memorable meal...we will be back.

“Amazing food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We were in Crete for only one week and dined at the Ferryman twice in that time. Having found the food generally not that adventurous at our hotel and other restaurants that we had tried the Ferryman was a bit of a revelation and certainly not to be missed. Have never tasted fish like it, cooked with the most amazing mixture of fresh herbs and accompanied by the freshest roasted vegetables. A must for foodies!!

“Initimate, high quality experience for foodies. Amazing hosts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

This was a fantastic, high quality, authentic meal in a wonderful setting. The hosts were very warm, funny and helpful. In addition they were also very knowledgeable and gave us great advice on the menu. All ingredients were fresh and specially selected from the local area. Another plus is the open inviting kitchen. Not to be missed if you appreciate high quality food with a focused menu. We have been to restaurants all over the world and this one ranks very high on the list. We will be back!

“Amazing good, fantastic location and brilliantly run :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice over the period of 2 weeks while on holiday in Elounda. By far the best restaurant we ate at on the island. The whole feel of the restaurant is brilliant and they are so welcoming. Such varied dishes to try and they only use local product which is brilliant. A must visit restaurant.
