“No service”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We sat for twenty minutes while a waiter laid empty tables and the proprietors enjoyed what seemed to be a very late lunch or early supper (we'd arrived at about 18:00, hoping for a carafe of wine). Eventually we got the message - no one wanted to serve us - and left.

“Fish.......... good, good, good”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Wonderful place to sit and enjoy. Service good. Portions enormous, one usually enough for two. You have to like fish then everything is heaven. Bread and olives to start, fruit and raki to finish - wonderful. We ordered Stifado a day in advance and it would fantastic - so meat is possible too.

“Lovely”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The view from Kanali is spectacular, the food, similarly, is delicious. Although I had no main course, the Dolmades, although different from the majority of others I've tried, stood out as being original and delicious. Highly recommend.

“Shirley Valentine would live HERE”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Just about the most wonderful location for any Taverna anywhere. Set across a little 'fairy bridge' from Elounda Village on a protected island this gem of a Taverna steals your heart. The meze food is amazing (just eat the Sardines, the fried courgette, the greek salads) and devour the mussels (best ever tasted). Fish is outstanding - be sure, however, to check the cost of the fish you select.... you could end up with a larger bill than you want.
The tables are set overlooking the small fishing inlet and link through to the main sea outlet past Spinalonga. Sitting either on the sofas or at any of the tables is a joy. To watch day turn to night whilst eating and partaking of the rather excellent Cretan white wines is a perfect end to any day.
Sunday lunch is a must here. The atmosphere is wonderful at all times and it is a joy to people watch.

“very good”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Atmosphere and location second to none. Very good food. Portions are large, don't order too much. Outside space for children to hang out. Entrees were better than main courses.
