This truly was the most amazing meal we had in Elounda. We were staying all inclusive but wanted to eat local as well and wow what a find. The service, the amazing meal, dessert, view this restaurant has the whole package.

Best meal we had all holiday and a very friendly welcome from owners and staff. Great location on the waterside.
DO NOT leave Crete until you have eaten here at least once!

The food and service here is excellent. Yiannis and Fortuni provide a very attentive service. Our Polish dining companion Magda ordered the Calamari Romana and although I was more than happy with my Village Chicken I must admit I was looking longingly at her dish which she said was cooked to perfection. This is a rarity as chefs invariably overcook it. I can recommend this place highly. The tranquil view across Elounda Bay with the fishing boat in the foreground makes this restaurant well worth a visit.

What a fantastic restaurant! We received the warmest of Greek welcomes and the staff were so polite and attentive throughout the evening without overdoing it. We were simply left to enjoy our meal but they were always ready in the background to respond to further orders for drinks etc..
We had ordered the Leg Of Lamb 24 hours earlier, as requested on the menu displayed outside the restaurant, and when it arrived at our table we couldn't believe our eyes. A whole leg of lamb served with Cretan-style oven potatoes priced at 63 euros for four people - incredible value. Yannis, the owner, carved the meat for us and it simply fell away from the bone. So tender, cooked to perfection and incredibly tasty!
The setting was perfect, next to the sea with fabulous views of the bay. Can't wait to return next year and try other things on the menu. We could easily find ourselves eating there every evening!

My wife had the Lamb Chops...this came with a heap of salad leaves...no dressing...and nothing else. We have eaten here 6 years ago and a couple of times this trip. Generally the food is still good (I had a nice sea bass for 13 Euros) but the staff and presentation are not as crisp as they used to be...we were looking forward to returning, especially to try the Lambuka fish again but the experience was just ok this time....shame.
