The food here was excellent as was the service. Try the sword fish and lamb souvlaki and you won't be disappointed. With tzatziki to start and some wine it came to 42.5 euros.

For 60 euros you do get a great value from the seafood platter but you really are pushing yourself to finish it. Wish we had at least two others to help us! Staff are super attentive, the food taste great, and setting is right on the water what more do you want.

Our first night in Elounda we just landed and were starving so we headed into town and come across this amazing restaurant and reasonably cheap too. The owner approached us and showed us the menu but didn't push us into coming in which is always nice. We had a table right on the edge about 30cm away from the sea.... More

Poulis offers a lovely setting, friendly, attentive service and wonderful food. Prices are extremely reasonable for the value. Great grilled fresh fish served with ample sides. We ate here twice and plan to return!!!

Mussels had bad smell and looked not fresh. The bread, which we did not order, was also not fresh and was included in check. The taste of white wine in carafe was awful. The waiters weren't going to return change. Strongly not recommend.

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to fillet steak. While the price matched that usually charged for fillet, the steak certainly didn't. It was gristly and very poor quality. Needless to say we haven't been back!

Great location that didn't follow through with the food. We had a recommendation for this restaurant from a taxi driver. An avocado salad to start that was good. The main courses were disappointing. A dry pork steak and a local beef stew (stamna) was not as infused with tastes that had been described by the waiter. When we commented on... More
