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.
