“Port side pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We started by having a drink at the cafe del mar next door, also run by the same family, unpretentious but great value with an amazing 5 star loo!

Then on to the main feature, the restaurant. Despite it being mid October, and all they really want to do is close and rest, the service was first class. We only had a light lunch, the meze plate for two which was almost authentic, but why CHIPS, not pitta bread!!!

Told to have the Demi carafe rather than glasses is wine, we sat by the sea and had a wonderful relaxed meal.

Prices reflected the ambience, but the food was first class.

“What a lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Sitting right by the water having lunch or an evening meal with the most magnificent views are the things we dream of during a cold long winter in the UK. This was in Elounda, Crete. This family run Restaurant run by Harrylouse and his wife was a dream come true. We used the tables along the road at lunch time, run by Harrylouse's wife, and in the evening we sat right out by the sea on Harrylouse's Poulis Jetty restaurant. The mixed fish dish caught locally, and the wine has made us want to return there next year. The staff of the restaurant were very attentive and Harrylouse himself was very knowledgeable about the fish he was serving. All that, coupled with the island of Spinalonga in the far distance at the end of the bay, what more can you wish for.

“A great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We went to Restaurant Poulis after a trip out to Spinlonga island. The restaurant has a jetty out into the sea and we sat at the end on a beautiful day looking our across the bay. The service was excellent and we had the sea food platter for two, with lobster, prawns, octopus, calamari, sardines, whitebait and sea bream, all cooked perfectly, wasked down with the house wine. We really enjoyed the setting and the food and would go there again.
