“Best restaurant on the seafront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

The quality of the food was very high, the only restaurant we went to that really applied some originality to the classic fare available in every taverna in Crete. Not the cheapest place but the upstairs terrace was a great place for a special dinner.

“Excellent tagliatelle!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is very well organised and, if a little too cool an evening, they have a windowed-restaurant overlooking the bay. The service was second to none and my tagliatelle was as good as in Italy. I was given a covered container of Parmesan so I could help myself - that was a treat! We dined there twice during the week - we like to spread our money between as many restaurants as we can - and they always treated us with "extras" such as a delicious pannacotta or liqueur. Excellent!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Having lived on Crete for some 7 years, and having eaten all over the island I have only good things to say about the Ergospasio. Clearly some of the reviewers don't understand that variety is the spice of life and that finding good, different recipes, based on Cretan cuisine is not easily found on Crete. Most tavernas provide wonderful, basic dishes which tourists enjoy immensely but finding something a bit different is not to be dismissed. Try going for a salad with 2 or 3 appetisers as we did did and enjoy food with subtle spices, superb fish and fresh crispy vegetables. This restaurant is a treat. Make sure you book. House white was delicious. My number 1 by a short head - having eaten at The Lotus Eaters the previous evening.

“A very welcoming restaurant with great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We had drinks and lunch here a couple of times, and the waiters were very helpful. Nothing too much trouble, and lots of little extras appeared at no request, and no extra cost. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, atmospheric restaurant (you can also sit by the sea). Lovely place on the prom. We shall definitely visit again when we return to Elounda.

“Not our ideal place to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

The food was good and plentiful, but we felt that the service was pretentious. They were trying to be a high end restaurant in the middle of a Greek village and if it weren't for the view you could have been back in the UK.

Maybe trying too hard.
