The restaurant is situated right by the sea, far out from the main town which makes a lovely peaceful and remote setting. The food is almost only fish dishes and is so fresh and reasonably priced. Mum had the prawns which she said were perfect...More

You cannot visit Elounda without a trip to Kanali. A lovely walk across the causeway, to a fabulous restaurant on the canal. The food is superb and the staff are so friendly and polite. Highly recommended.

Would advise walking from elounda to this restaurant to increase your appetite as the food is outstanding, a bit pricey but still good value. Would definitely recommend the fish platter for 2 at 70 euros. Worth every penny ( or should I say euro )....More

If you like fish and want a meal away from the tourist spots, with great views and by the water - then this is for you. We came here 2 years ago and this was on our list to re-visit. Not disappointed and puzzled why...More
