Lovely restaurant

This review is long overdue. We visited Olondi for the second time last summer and were not disappointed again. We had a warm welcome from the staff and the food did not disappoint either. There's a great atmosphere in the restaurant, it's clean and the service was good. Highly recommend!

We came here for lunch everyday we were in town (staying at the Elounda Bay Palace Hotel, a short way away). We got to know the owners/staff well and began to feel like family. The food (traditional Cretan food) and their house wines were excellent!! It was quite emootional when we had our last meal and had to say 'goodbye'.... More

We dined here twice during our stay at the beginning of October after eating here twice when we stayed in Elounda in 2013! It was just as good as we remembered! Can't recommend the garlic prawn starter enough we had it twice! The mousaka is to die for and one night I had a plate of little fish caught that... More

Came here by word of mouth and so happy to have been here, as they welcome you and do not rush you into your next course. When you're done with your food (or drink, as you don't have to eat to sit there) they will not harass you to leave and have other people sit there, enjoy the view, right... More

Went to this restaurant during a weeks holiday in Elounda at the end of September 2015. Tried a few other restaurants - but the food here was consistently better than anywhere else - and I would second a previous post that the Stifado is probably the best....! What made it even more memorable, was that we returned here on our... More

Unassuming looking place, well south of Elounda's centre, but order the 'mezes for two' or the stifado, and you will not regret it. Better still, starve yourself for a while then order both. Fantastic, yum yum, wish I was back there now.

This looked like a nice place to stop for lunch. It's a short stroll from the square to the right of the harbour on the waterfront and behind the shops on the main road through Elounda. Waiters are very friendly. We ordered a local selection for 2 to share, including meat balls (mama's recipe), aubergine salad, cheese balls (10 small... More
