“Best Local Restaurant in Elounda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

There is much to be said but the "juice" is that Ferryman is the best choice of non-hotel restaurants in Elounda. Superb location, fine decor, excellent service, very good wine selection and, mainly, great food. The food is from A to Z perfectly cared for: fresh choice materials, variety of items, inspired cooking and presentation, all not distant from the Greek and Cretan tradition of superb cuisine. Akis and his family add a very distinct "soul", offering an overall great experience urging you to return. Keep it up!

“Excellent food and fabulous service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Myself, my boyfriend and my parents visited the Ferryman on 2 consecutive nights. The food was outstanding and Akis (the manager) went above and beyond to ensure you found something you liked on the menu and even tailored dishes to suit. We were even given extra side dishes at no extra cost and complementary drinks at the end of our meal! Would highly reccomend and would return in a heart beat!
Thank you Akis!

“Exceptional dinning experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Ferryman Taverna is a culinary experience that should be enjoyed many times. We ate there two nights in a row and will return. The view of the harbor with the robins egg blue skiff is memorable. The food is local produce freshly prepared. The braised lamb should be enjoyed and savored. The personal attention to each table is unique and the service superior. We would highly recommend this taverna.

“Perfect place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had a modest little lunch at this taverna. It was the location of a TV programme many years ago that I remember well. The family still own the taverna, and the lovely lady (very pregnant) showed us some of the photographs from that time. Such kind welcoming people, and such a beautiful location.
