After checking into our apartment fairly late, we went straight out for something to eat and the Melissos restaurant was the first we came to. Minutes later we were sitting at an idyllic table overlooking the water and enjoying our first beautifully cooked meal of the holiday. We visited another four times during our stay as we liked it so much. We were always given free pudding or fruit and raki and prices were very reasonable. The staff are warm and friendly but not too intrusive and we always felt welcome. We sampled quite a few different dishes and none were disappointing. We can’t wait to return.

This is a nice place to site, with great views, and comfortable chairs. The food was mixed. Seafood pasta had good fresh seafood on top, but horrible overcooked and/or frozen mixed in. Cheese pies were clearly frozen (but still nice). Souvlaki was tough and dry, but it usually is. Generous free puddings and raki.

Ate here twice during our holiday in Elounda last August. Although staying close to this restaurant we passed here every night when we went out to dinner but we were very tired one night and didn't want to go far. How glad we were. The kleftico was the best we had tasted. Service was excellent and to top it all off, the views were awesome. Loved it so much we returned again on our last night. Very unusual for us as so many restaurants to choose from in Elounda. Will definitely return.

Very friendly initially and had a great first experience. Fantastic fried anchovies as a starter. Huge portion so we took some home and ate as a cold lunch the next day. We did have the odd meals that weren't great. We found that friendliness waned once they saw us as regulars
