“the best restaurant in elounda!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

My boyfriend and I were staying in Elounda between the dates of 25/06/2013 and 06/07/2013. I have never been to Crete, though I visited Kefalonia in August 2011 and assumed that the food would be similar here: traditional Grecian. However, every restaurant we visited was very disappointing. That is, until we visited Porto Rino on our final night. There were a large variety of dishes to choose from, it was not over-priced and the dishes were absolutely huge, so you got a lot for your money! However, what made this restaurant our favourite and made us return for lunch on our final day was the staff. The owners were really friendly and polite and offered to change the dishes slightly to suit our tastes. They even remembered us upon our return and were very chatty. They even gave us our second round of drinks on the house on our final day which we really appreciated. Overall, a very personal feel to eating out, great atmosphere, value for money and tasty food! Laura and Alex.

“Pizza Perfect”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We have been visiting Elounda for 10 years and Porto Rinio is our favourite restuarant. You can watch Petros the pizza chef make all the pizzas by hand using the finest ingredients and cooked in the traditional stone pizza oven. They are the best pizza we have ever had. You can also sample freshly prepared local dishes and pasta. What ever you chose you will not be disappointed. Nothing is to much trouble for the staff, who are very friendly and able to adapt dishes to meet your needs. Porto Rino is a family run taverna over looking Elounda harbour with fabulous views of the mountains offering great value for money.

Visit today for a fantastic meal.

“Family friendly and a great place to eat”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Visited in May and had several lunches and dinners at Porto Rino. It is a lovely family friendly restaurant where nothing is too much trouble. You can watch the pizzas being made from your table and they have always been really tasty. I always find it difficult to choose from the menu as there are so many great dishes! You can choose from pasta, pizzas and local Greek dishes knowing that you won't be disappointed. Going back in July with my grandchildren andI know that the first meal that they order will start with garlic pizza, followed by souvlaki. Children's meal are very reasonably price and generous portions. If you don't feel like going out their take away service is ideal and you can choose anything on the restaurant menu!

“Wow”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

The food in this restaurant is amazing. We only went twice as we were actually staying all inclusive in a hotel, however we still wanted to visit a couple of restuarants. Great service with lovely staff and the food we tried was to die for! Definately reccommend the Grilled Holoumi cheese starter and then i had Fillet steak diane which was cooked to perfection. It actually melted in the mouth!! Please try this place :-)
