We ate here on our last day in Elounda and wished we had visited previously. We were staying next door at the lovely Akti Oulous so we tended to walk our for our evening meal rather than visit a restaurant on the doorstep. However on our last day we wanted to eat in our hotel restaurant The BlueSea as we had previously eaten there and enjoyed the meal but they hadn't got what we wantedcon the menu so went next door to Melissos. The service was quick and the food delicious with huge portions. They were a family run restaurant and it was nice to see the owners and their family and friends enjoying lunch together.we were given a hugh complimentary plate of water melon. We noticed another couple dining had a hugh fish, when we enquired about it they took the trouble to tell us what it was and how much it cost and when the couple struggled to finish it the waitresses kindly brought a box in which to put it so they could take it home. Will definitely return when I visit again.

I am lucky enough to live in Elounda but this is one of our favourite restaurants, tourist season or not. The food is amazing and always something a little different on the menu. I'm not going to tell anyone my favourite as it may sell out next time I want it :-). The kleftiko is the best around

Fabulous choice and cooked beautifully . We ate here 4times and you could not fault anything at all . The service and people are great and we particularly enjoyed the courgette flowers ,octopus and kleftico but everything was good. The view is wonderful . Go with a good appetite as the portions are big .

Loads of restaurants to choose from in Elounda but we always make our way back here a few times at least . Last came here 5 years ago and we were instantly recognised by the family that owns it a couple of compliments that we hadn't aged went down well too ,true or not it certainly put us in a mood to dine well and we did .

Having ate there several times the mezos to share and the lamb kleftiko can be particularly recommended although you can pick anything on the menu really and have an excellent meal . Retsina and a dessert are always thrown in being the usual Cretan hospitality and not just a marketing tool.Lydia the new waitress is a welcome addition to the staff .

Locals dine here on special occasions which says it all really .

We had dinner here twice during our week's stay. Plenty of choice on the menu, food was plentiful and a very high standard. The owners were particularly friendly / helpful and nothing was too much trouble. With a picture postcard setting...I would not hesitate to recommend.
