The Ferryman offers terrific food in a beautiful setting. We had a lovely long dinner here- rushing through a meal is definitely not allowed here! The host is a vivacious man who enjoys an audience. The hostess is personable and keeps things running smoothly. The...More

If you are looking for a culinary heaven: Ferryman brings you there. The moment even an atheist becomes religous! Goat, lamb, veal, seafood, salads and greek starters - the chef is composing and celebrating his own advanced style on a traditional basis. Don't miss it!

Whilst visiting the fisherman village Elounda in East Crete, found this hidden Gem... Amazing spot, next from the Sea, and the food is so delicious. Greek cuisine on it's very best, i would say. Can't wait to get back again. Had a lovely night!

We did not pre-book a table, but perhaps we were fortunate. It's a small venue and pre-booking would be wise.
