Great atmosphere, good music, amazing service and really special food! Try the lamb chops with traditional vegetables! And maybe you are lucky to find Giorgios!
Fatnastic!

There are lots and lots of restaurants along the marina in Elounda of course but this one was superb. The somewhat cheesy name of the place belies it's excellent quality. All of the staff were warm, friendly and professional and the food was full of taste in every course, well thought out and beautifully presented by an obviously ambitious kitchen. The crockery was classy too. We may even return here on another night this holiday as you can tell they'll be consistent and the price was less than a sub standard buffet (1st night arrival job) that we'd had at our otherwise beautiful 5 star hotel. Lovely view of the marina here too and you get the feeling that kalypso is actually succeeding at being a real restaurant rather than a money taking cafe exploiting holiday makers. Lovely.

we visited the Kalypso when we were on honeymoon this year in may. We were served by manos and George who were lovely. the food was of very standard and it tasted fabulous. I would recommend the fish sea bass and the sea bream. The waiters were fantastic. We told them that we came to the restaurant 3 years ago and my partner proposed to me and we decided to return for our honeymoon. and have a meal in the restaurant because of the memorable occasion.We are returning next year to elounda and will be coming back to the Kalypso for a meal.Hopefully we will be served by George and Manos

We visited here twice during our stay in Elounda. The first time was for a traditional Greek Meze and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed fresh beautifully cooked food and on the basis of this we were encouraged to return again later on the week for a special fish meal cooked especially for us. This was such a disappointment. Although we had booked and were shown to a reserved table the waiter knew nothing of our booking and the meal that we had been promised. We had to explain the situation to both waiters and in the end we gave up and just ordered off the menu. The service was slow even though only about six tables were occupied. The whole evening was a bit of a let down. At one point we actually discussed just paying for our wine and leaving. Such a shame as this restaurant is also owned by the same person who owns the complex that we stayed in.

Certainly one of the best meals we had during our stay. The menu was imaginative, food was beautifully presented...traditional Cretan but with a contemporary twist. I would definitely recommend the sea bass fillets. Giorgos our host /waiter for the evening was an absolute delight...nothing was too much trouble. Wine was a little pricey compared to other restaurants but overall was good value for money and we will definitely return here next time we visit.
