On the front at Elounda. This restaurant is small enough to offer personal attention and a high standard of food. This taverna serves traditional Cretan food.

Persuaded to eat here on the second night of our holiday by the ubiquitous smooth talking chap by the menu but we weren't disappointed. Food was good and the free dessert platter very tasty indeed! We were sat beside the water so able to enjoy the best of the setting.

Restaurant on set on seafront and on pontilla. Quite large. Food adequate but nothing special. Pay for its position.

We had two meals at Poulis during our week long stay in Elounda - one lunch and one evening meal. Both were excellent. The setting is breathtaking - right on the harbours side with a great view of Spinalonga in the distance. The first time we visited was in the evening and candles were flickering all around the hotel -... More

My girlfriend and I visited here as our splash out night on our holiday and had our best meal of the week. Set right on the water at Elounda harbour we were quickly seated right at the water. As I mentioned we had our splash out night but there is plenty of great value to be had if you're looking... More

We were slightly nervous when the village wine came in a bottle rather than a jug, but the whole experience was delightful, the service attentive and the food excellent. The Saganaki was great as was the stuffed aubergine and courgette balls. Recommend a visit.

Came here on the second night of our holiday. We were promptly seated by the sea and had a lovely view. Atmosphere was lovely and had some lovely village wine. Food was nice but a bit disappointed that the prawns weren't de-veined. However this seems to be a common theme in Elounda. It did put me off a bit. Service... More
