walked along the harbour and selected this place as the food looked great and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the selection was great, a nice mix of traditional and local dishes. We had some very nice prosecco and a great meal and the bill was very reasonable, the staff were very friendly and helpful and didn't... More

This place was fantastic. I was recommended this by another Brit where we were staying, I passed it on to the family. We turned up a couple of days later to peruse the menu and perhaps consider a booking - we were greeted with the lovely lady of the house that gave us a wonderfully honest review of the entire...

My family and I decided to try Megaro for lunch and were so pleased that we returned two more times in a single week! Each time we ordered a large lavrak (seabass) and barbounia platter (red mullet). The fish were expertly prepared and were full of flavor. Each time we also received a different small dish on the house such... More

The restaurant is in a lovely location next to the waterfront. As is the case in Elounda, you do tend to pay a bit more for the waterfront restaurants. The menu was extensive with something to satisfy most tastes. Service was generally good and portion sizes ample. A very enjoyable meal.

The first time we called in at Megaro was for a drink. We were warmly greeted by Nicki who we had met the day before. We decided to go for a meal two days later and were greeted as though we were part of the family and were introduced to Nicki's husband Dimitris. As we were choosing our starter Dimitris... More

We ate at this restaurant in Elounda on our last night in Crete .It was the worst meal i had there. It's by the sea but doesn't really have a view. We had snails and shrimps as starters . The snails weren't good but the shrimp was very nice . As main dish we had veal stuffed aubergines and lamb... More

A perfect setting and whilst the service and the menu choices were good the offerings were extremely disappointing. The cretan salad starter was acceptable, but inferior to any of the other restaurants we ate in. We both had a fish main course and found the quality much poorer than we had enjoyed elsewhere in Elounda, not to mention the size.

Stopped by after a boat trip to spinalonga. Perfect location on the edge of the harbour, we were enticed in. The food and service were both good and at 39 euros for wine, water and a Greek meze for two, with complimentary dessert, it was good value too.

Ordered the fish platter for two and it certainly didn't disappoint. We started off with fried halloumi and aubergine between two, and although quite a small portion, it packed plenty of flavour and set us up for our main course. The octopus, calamari and muscles were a great prelude to the sea bream & shrimp (see photo); the taste equally... More
