Very tasty revisited Cretan food. Honestly that was the best experience in Lassithi. Great and fresh shrimps, fantastic tasty Kebbab and excellent pasta for the kids.

Wonderful food and beautiful location. We enjoyed it so much we ate here twice over our holiday. Definitely a place to visit in Elounda, our favourite restaurant here!
Highly recommend trying the strawberry soup for dessert!

This is MUST have when dinning in Elounda !! we loved it so much we went twice. We arrived in the town with our list from trip advisor and found Ferryman. We spoke to the owner who informed us that they were very busy and we needed to make reservations in advance.but he said if we came back in about an hour he would have a table free. We left but went we came back the place was still packed. He set up a small table out front with a glass of wine on the house while we waited. WELL, was it ever worth the wait. The food is out of this world , the scenery was breathtaking but the thing i will remember most was the hospitality of the owner.This is a man who knows how to run a business and it was such a pleasure to dine in his 'kitchen' .

We tried a couple of restaurants in Elounda during our 1 week stay and the food at the Ferryman stands out by far. Exquisite cooking. The caper sauce with the calamari, the homemade bread and oils, halloumi with fig jam, beautiful grilled shrimps with green salad and bruschetta.

Such a lovely owner, who miraculously persuaded our 8 year old boy that he didn't really need tomato ketchup with his supper! He was right. He did him simple pan fried fish in lemon and oil and potatoes with herbs and he ate the lot!!! My fish was outstanding, on a bed of local herbs and greens, my husband had the slow cooked lamb with risotto.

Puddings were also good, as was the ambience and setting. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We have tried almost everything from the main courses and all was very tasty. Personal suggestion to try mussles, one of the best of I have tried (and I travel a lot). Definately 5/5.
