A great place to eat, excellent food and views! With the addition of BeeRaki next door serving great beer it’s a perfect afternoon/evening.

We had read the reviews and we certainly were not disappointed. Location, staff and food were perfect. We ate here twice and could not fault the place. We chose the house specials first visit lamb ribs and chops second visit beef stifano.

Excellent view, great food and friendly service - but not good if you are allergic to cats! Recommend to get here to see the sunset, but great views over Elounda at night. Food is great and plenty of it at a very reasonable price.

We visited The Hope at the end of our 2 week holiday and were completely blown away by the experience. No frills or fancy stuff here, just fantastic, traditional food and a host who wants to ensure your meal is the best. It's in a...More

Going up here for the view alone is worth it, but this is the first time in 3.5 years that my wife and I have visited the same restaurant twice. The food was delightful, the staff friendly, the restaurant authentic, the view stupendous. On our...More

There is a car park a short walk from the restaurant. It is signposted. If you drive through Elounda towards Plaka there is a road that leads directly to this or I think there is a road from the centre of Elounda that goes... More
