“Guy who said Blue Sea not the best must be from another planet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We ate at the Blue Sea every night, sat at the end and fed the huge fish with bread when it went dark and they shone the lights into the water, it was a magic experience. The food was amazing, the staff very very helpful . Just thinking about our time there makes me happy, four years later.

“Best food in Elounda from the Barker family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a 2 week stay in the hotel Atki Olous usually we don't eat at the hotel restaurant but we did twice, the staff were amazing very friendly and so caring, we ate at ergospasio, ferryman, olondi, melissos and many more but none compared to the blue sea the food was fantastic the service was top notch too, Viktoria, Viviene and Elisca were wonderful so friendly and very helpful, It was so romantic the restaurant goes out into the sea (bay of Elounda) you would struggle to find a more romantic place. The price was very reasonable too, starter 1-7 euro, main upto 14 euro and dessert about 4-5 euro white wine per 500ml 5 euro try the Greek special mix, the mixed grill was also superb and the desserts are delicious we can't say enough about the super staff or the amazing food, so if you do go to Elounda you have to eat at the Blue Sea Restaurant.

“Best place to eat along the harbour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

When I decide on my holidays I spent the couple of months before planning and researching. One of the things I research are taverna's. I compiled a little list of those I wanted to visit, Blue Sea wasn't on it and we discovered it walking along the harbour. What a find! It is the restaurant that also feeds the guests from the Akti Olous Hotel. The service and friendliness displayed by the staff is refreshing and enticing. they know what and how to say things! They make you feel a valued guest that some other nearby places need to learn! The ambience is great for couples, young and old, as well as families. The kleftiko is fantastic. In fact we dined 3 times there especially the last night and each time was a joy to dine and also very reasonably priced.

“we had really lovely meal :))”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We found this restaurant walking on the sea side and decide to have evening meal over there. We had a really lovely food, superb service and moon above us giving silver light on water- that was the most romantic meal during our stay in Elounda! Reasonable prices for us as a young couple made us be back few times.
We had try Greek cuisine (I really enjoy it), chicken and fish and we weren’t disappointed. Each dish not only looks tasty- it was tasty!!
