Was recommended by local business. Worth the walk up the hill on outskirts of Elounda in Mavrikiano area.
Apparently has just reopened and with original family again.
Excellent views.
Run by husband and wife.
Excellent food, traditional menu. Chicken was excellent. Shepherds salad was fantastic, very large portion.
House wine was excellent.
Given feta cheese pie with honey as complimentary desert, sounds strange but was fantastic.
Trying hard to please, nothing too much trouble.
Only on holiday for 1 week wish we had found it sooner as would visit again.

Last night we were taken by friends to this place....and we were amazed!

Kantouni has been in Mavrikiano for quite a few years, but has just recently gone back under the ownership of the original family. They have spent a great deal of money to make the a great space and a modern working area, without losing the traditional feel of the place.

The food is very traditional Cretan, and we had mezi with a large bowl of salad (Shepherd's salad - a MUST!) also 2 large carafes of wine...the bill was less than 40.00 euros! What value!!

The views are outstanding, because of the location - about 50 meters uphill from the main road to Plaka - but it is so worth the walk! As a newly re-opened busiess, this couple are just getting their reputation for all their hard work, and we think this place really deserves to be on anyones' must do list while in Elounda or Plaka.

Bravo guys - we'll be back next time we close early on sundays!

Kantouni traditional restaurant in Mavrikiano, elounda has reopened and is better than ever. The food, the view, the welcome and value are all still there with the original family owners now welcoming you. The courgettes and stuffed peppers are supplemented by tasty meat or fish dishes. A restaurant well worth seeking out, only a short walk from the resort on the road to Plaka.

The Kantouni is the best restaurant in Elounda, lovely food and wonderful service by the new owner and waiter (the rose)! We have been visiting for some years now and even with changing ownership the Kantouni has a lovely atmosphere and traditional food along with stunning views. We can't wait to return again in June. It is difficult to go to another restaurant when you know this one.
