This restaurant made our stay at the hotel! Whilst the hotel was fantastic, the food made it excellent! Special thanks go to the staff, Kosmas, Akis and the chef, Vaggelis, who was so good at adapting the menu for my allergy requirements, were professional, attentive and friendly at all times and they went above and beyond to ensure that my dairy allergy was adhered too throughout our stay. The food was incredible and we were excited to eat their for both lunch and dinner, knowing it would be freshly prepared and adapted for me and I felt safe to eat there at all times. I’ll let my photo’s speak for themselves regarding the food. 5* and then some! So good we have just booked to return in 5 weeks time and cannot wait! 😍

My friends and I had called the restaurant in prior. They assured us that they could make gluten-free meals. We also had it confirmed by our waiter at the restaurant that the meal my friend would get was gluten free, since he is very allergic. Cut to one spaghetti aglio olio and a few hours later, we are in the hospital with our friend on his birthday because of gluten poisoning. When we contacted the restaurant and they refused to have a part of the scandal, although they offered of free cocktails as compensation. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy, and I advice other guest to eat elsewhere on your stay in Malia.

Very nice seafront location. Food good although disappointing that a lot was missing off the menu. They get 4 stars though because the food was very nice and cosmos the waiter is absolutely fabulous and his job comes naturally to him. Very pleasant and caring man and couldn’t do enough for us.

We walked along the coastal path from our hotel in Sissi to Malia beach and in need of refreshment stopped at Elia for a drink. Elia is a lovely cafe/restaurant situated on the seafront opposite a small island. We were served delicious freshly squeezed orange juice. Friendly staff and good location.

We had a full English breakfast here which was very nice and included a glass of fresh orange that was delicious. It certainly wasn’t the cheapest breakfast we had but it was lovely We also have takeaway pizzas one night and they were very expensive and didn’t have very much topping on them apart from lots of cheese. Bit disappointed after our lovely breakfast

We walked to Elia’s which was almost a mile from our resort, but definitely worth the walk. We requested a table upstairs which gave us a beautiful view of the sea and the sunset over the mountain to our left. We shared orders of their saganaki and zucchini balls. Both were really good. My wife got the sea bass and I got the vegetable risotto, again YUM. We had a half liter of their house white wine, just okay. They didn’t ask us about dessert of coffee. I’m thinking that you have to order it with your meal. Anyway our server brought us some Rakomelo which is Raki with honey, really quite good. This meal was not only totally YUM, but also very reasonably priced. A definite 👍
