“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

If you visit Elounda then you have to go the Arodamos. Away from the main square the courtyard tables under the olive trees are very relaxing. The food includes traditional BBQ style food fresh from the spit every day, along with traditional Cretan dishes including lamb from the oven with potatoes are delish.
The homemade deserts given as a freebie and more raki then I care to remember made it a fantastic night. Plenty more visits on our trips are on the cards.

“An excellent night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Arodamos provides the customers with not only excellent food but also a great atmosphere. The restaurant is set in an olive grove and has small lights hanging from the trees. We arrived a little after 8pm and had a wonderful evening, the food is freshly prepared for you and the spit roast is in plain view. We went twice, first on a bouzouki evening when we dined and then listened to the musicians, then a second time when there were two bouzoukis, a guitar and a lyre (?). Please book a table as people were being turned away on one of the nights we were there! This is not fast food, the family work hard to provide an excellent evening, we ate then sat listening to the music,some of the locals got up to dance, absolutely heavenly ....... there are probably no more than twelve tables, make sure that you get to reserve one of them!
It's not big and brash, it's up a side street and it's worth finding.Two minutes walk from the harbour behind the Olive Grove Apartments .... check it out, I'm sure that you will be glad that you did!

“hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We ate here the other night and had a marvellous time! the seating is pleasant and the food super!
Service was good and informative and the traditional Mesi food was well prepared and served. An excellent glass of wine washed down the lamb and potatoes from the oven, although we missed out by not ordering some of the amazing salads available!
A definite recommend for a lovely place to while away the evening...say hello to Ron for me :)
