the location is definetly worth because it's the last house before the beach. the rooms are old and in need of some works, but the worst is the restaurant. the staff is not so cheerful, and so it's the food, expensive and nothing special. breakfast are very, very poor (two slices of old bread and a jam in plastic blister...

This place is adequate if you just need to get satisfied but not looking for something culinary (a k a the food is ready when you hear the "pling"). The settings saves this place from a "2".

If it weren't for the location I would be surprised if this restaurant survived on the market. Edible food, horrible service. Nice customers though! ;)

... but not much else. The service is not friendly. The food is average. Clearly they know they won't be short of customers because the view is great and the location is very convenient.

I asked with what it was served - the lady said with fries. I asked whether vegetables would be possible, she said she has no vegetables and that the fries are... More

I am a resident of Chania and have visited Elafonisi many times, considering it actually one of the most beautiful places in Greece. This time, we decided to stay and have a meal in Panorama restaurant, since we had never eaten there before and nothing else was nearby. The whole experience was so disappointing, that I am literally wondering why... More

Slowest service we never had in Greece. The blonde female "servicing" us was slow, rude and unpolite. We will not bother you again.

Others have mixed views of the Panorama but we had a great lunch here in a lovely setting. Jenny had the fresh swordfish which had been landed only a few minutes before (delicious I'm told) while I had a huge and really tasty boureki (vegetable bake with potatoes, courgettes, tomatoes and onions, topped with cottage cheese and baked in the...
