Love this restaurant, have eaten here several times during our stay in Elounda, the staff are always welcoming and the service is efficient. The food is delicious, including fresh seafood and a selection of mezze dishes. The best thing about this place has to be the stunning location, sitting right out on the ocean it's so peaceful and has such... More

We had two wonderful meals at Melissos. We stumbled in for lunch and we were lured back for dinner by the delicious food, stunning food and Tasso's would wonderful hospitality. Highly recommended the beetroot with garlic purée and the salt baked sea bass! A truly charming spot!

We booked a table & arrived on time. We ordered drinks then our food which was mostly fish. We waited... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance as we headed off for a boat trip. Our taxi driver recommended and we wandered in for a spot of lunch. We were made to feel very welcome. The food was very fresh - a lunch of octopus, squid, Greek salad and fried zucchini washed down with half a liter of white wine.... More

The best restaurant on the Bay of Elounda without doubt. The most amazing fish dishes, friendly staff, knowledgeable chef, a perfect Greek experience. Amazing setting on the waterfront with the sea lapping at your side. Bliss

It was our last afternoon and we were killing time and having one last meal, so decided to drop into the first restaurant from where we were staying, at first glance of the menu it looked a little more expensive than I had planned on but it was such a nice location it was understandable... With our drinks ordered My... More

This is a restaurant that we have visited before and enjoyed very much but it has changed. Menu is different and very much seafood based and the old favourites that we liked are no longer available. It is also more expensive than it used to be and on the night we visited the service was terrible. My wife and I... More
