“Worth the trip - Cretan Snails”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Well worth a walk into Elounda this traditional Cretan taverna has much in its favour. Snails - the East Cretan style, a speciality of the house, bathed in rich oilive oil and rosemary this creepy crawlie cuisine is a true delight, even for the squeemish. Fantastic salads and octopus to accompany.

“good food and friendly”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

There are many restaurents in Elunda but this one was positioned by the sea with friendly staff and resonably priced full menu. Just right for a romantic evening.

“Great food and service, we went back!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Yannis and the team at the Olondi restaurant make the meals here far more memorable than others we experienced. They are on hand to provide advice about the different options on the well rounded menu. The portions are generous and contain lots of fresh great quality ingredients. We had amazing sea bream, HUGE prawns cooked with a basic dressing of garlic and lemon, no fuss, no nonsense they just let the great quality ingredients do the talking without adding lots of fuss that ruins it. We also had lobster, again not ruined with loads of cream, just a simple dressing that complimented the lobster perfectly! This restaurant was busy every time we went to it and is set on the sea front with a lovely garden theme to it, comfortable seating and candles on each table. The service is perfect, striking the balance between chatting to their guests and leaving them alone enough to enjoy their meal. We felt very relaxed eating here and not pressured to do so when we walked past which we had experienced at several restaurants on our walk along to Oldondi, something that puts us off straight away! Definitely worth a visit!
