we were recommended to visit by our hotel, and were not disappointed. We chose a variety of dishes to share between the 4 of us, and they were all amazing. I especially liked the grilled octopus, but everything was superb, including the very modestly priced...More

This is my second review of this most idyllic of settings. The attention of the waiters makes you feel relaxed straight away and the food is still excellent. We ate there several times during our week long holiday but at no time did they have...More

What a find. An upmarket fish shack by the water which sends a boat to pick you up and drop you back. The food is excellent. We dined on anchovies, calamari, octopus, sardines and prawns. All fresh and all delicious. Washed down with local beer...More

A lovely restaurant away from the centre of Elounda but only a few minutes walk over the causeway or by car from Agios Nikolaos or Plaka. It is set in a unique location on the small canal which goes under the causeway. I have to...More

We ate here on a Sunday night and the place was packed with Greek families as well as tourists. Food was a good quality and house wine was average. The quality of food and service was very good. The menu is mainly fish.

Brilliant meal as always - gorgeous octopus, and salt baked sea bass in such an idyllic setting. Every time we are in Elounda we have to come here at least once and we have never been disappointed. Great service, attentive but not intrusive. Love it.

The location of Kanali is special. On the water. However, we were there on a very windy night. They put up heavy plastic “windows” which totally obliterates the view (part of why we went there) The fish was way overpriced. 60 euroes for a small...More

This place was recommended to us by hotel staff. After finally finding our way there, what a treat. Across a small causeway that used to be part of local salt flats, we came across this restaurant. Right on the edge of the water with an...More

This unique spot is located on a strip of land stretching into the Elounda bay, so you feel like your floating on the water opposite the town and hotels light on the shore. View is amazing and the atmosphere is very romantic. That doesn’t mean...More
