My wife and I stayed at a nearby resort and had been informed by friends to visit this place . What a great recommendation !!! We did lunch the first day and came back for dinner the following day . The food is fresh , innovative and just delicious . The mussels with feta and olive oil - beautiful . The catch of the day on moth occasions was delicious . Desserts are amazing - save space for it. The staff were unbelievable , from the main guy who runs this place to the support staff who were preparing the fish at the edge of the bay . They really made us feel welcome . I would revisit Elounda just for this restaurant .

Thank Gary D

Fabulous meal....home made bread and the best taramasalata I have ever tasted. Plus the halloumi baked with fig jam was amazing. Lovely service and try and book a table on the water's edge. Just lovely.

The Ferryman Taverna couldn't have been more hospitable and the food more delicious. The setting on the blue water of the Aegean relieves stress. The staff was attentive but not overbearing. The proprietor, Akis, and the stellar chef, Yiannis, graciously greeted our party and served a bouquet of the following tastes: silky smoked eggplant spread with crunchy Cretan bread; fried haloumi cheese with fig jam and fresh mint (what a combination!); arugula salad with beet greens, tomatoes, and black eyed peas; the most perfectly cooked octopus with fava bean dip; and the piece de resistance, grilled shrimp with fish roe and tomato sauce. Each dish was perfectly balanced in flavor and distinct from the others. The repast finished with a dessert of homemade phyllo and vanilla ice cream garnished with dried fruits and nuts mixed with honey and cinnamon. For lunch or dinner, The Ferryman never disappoints.
