,,,so no need for me to repeat.
It took us some months to finally make it here for a meal having had the place recommended to us a year ago but it was well worth it in the end.......
V popular in high season so best for us to shelve till winter once more and we can get a seat in edgeways.

Without the help of TA we would never have stumbled across this fantastic restaurant. High in the hills we walked hoping it would be worth it and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by the very friendly owner who told us about the day's specials and then left us to take in the breathtaking views high above Elounda. We chose a selection of Meze dishes which were delicious. This is a charming authentic Greek restaurant with friendly owners which really shouldn't be missed.

Please don't tell everyone where this is, we want to keep this little gem hidden!
Friendly service what ever time of day you go. They always have a special of the day or two that have always melted in your mouth, (yes in 10 days we went 3 times!)
The view from the top of the hill overlooking Elounda is stunning, hopefully the walk up cardiac hill will keep this place exclusive.

We went for an early dinner at this lovely little restaurant, that has such a history. Any later and we would have had to eat elsewhere! Within an hour, hungry folk were waiting for a spare table or reluctantly leaving to find somewhere else to eat. Always a good sign that many local people (local Cretians and ex pats) choose to eat and socialise there. The hosts could not be more welcoming and gave a very personal service even when really pushed by the number of diners. Our order was taken when we were ready, not rushed, and the food was superb - good varied choices and some specials. We accidentally knocked over a bottle of beer and this was cleared up with a smile and a new bottle brought immediately. We drove to The Hope (and you need to be confident in driving on the right and manoevouring between tight spaces) and there is parking near but you may find it difficult bringing a large car - this is a very old village setting and small roads are to be expected. Would recommend The Hope to all.

Brilliant restaurant, tucked away in local residential road. Easily serving some of the best Creation food around.
