“Food was excellent - the lamb was fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Food was excellent - the lamb was fantastic!! A wonderful place, great landscape, with a fantastic view, the owners really lovely; it's what we hoped to find when we looked for a romantic restaurant. The setting was amazing as we sat near the water overlooking on to Spinaloga island.
The Owner Akis (quite a character!) and his family could not do enough for us. Would definitely recommend dinning here again and hope to return in the near future.

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We made a reservation at the Ferryman a couple of days before we ate there to ensure we had a seat right at the water. The staff were lovely. We ordered Cretan food for our starters and mains, all of which were delicious. We had wine and water with our meal and coffees at the end. The whole meal came to approx 70euro which we considered excellent value for the experience, food and service we received. We would have spent at least another 30euro having the same meal in our hotel!

Our first vist to the Ferryman. It has a well deserved reputation for food and a fantastic setting right on the waters edge. The night we visited it was extremely busy and we had a long wait for our food but cant fault the quality of our dinner. fesh and delicious !!
