Had great evening meal here. Atmosphere was friendly and great service. Whitebait for starters was very good, then kleftico, bekri mezi, both excellent. Could not fault anything.

We found Nico (Ex Katafygio Boss) at Poulis .. Now we have another favourite restaurant. Food is lovely , service is brilliant. And we loved the views at our midday drink time Sitting along side the sea. Arris the boss, full on attentive. And his special treats. Could not ask for more!!

On the front at Elounda. This restaurant is small enough to offer personal attention and a high standard of food. This taverna serves traditional Cretan food.

Persuaded to eat here on the second night of our holiday by the ubiquitous smooth talking chap by the menu but we weren't disappointed. Food was good and the free dessert platter very tasty indeed! We were sat beside the water so able to enjoy the best of the setting.

Restaurant on set on seafront and on pontilla. Quite large. Food adequate but nothing special. Pay for its position.

We had two meals at Poulis during our week long stay in Elounda - one lunch and one evening meal. Both were excellent. The setting is breathtaking - right on the harbours side with a great view of Spinalonga in the distance.

My girlfriend and I visited here as our splash out night on our holiday and had our best meal of the week. Set right on the water at Elounda harbour we were quickly seated right at the water. As I mentioned we had our splash out night but there is plenty of great value to be had if you're looking... More

We were slightly nervous when the village wine came in a bottle rather than a jug, but the whole experience was delightful, the service attentive and the food excellent. The Saganaki was great as was the stuffed aubergine and courgette balls. Recommend a visit.
