Have been there quite a few times and have enjoyed each time. The food is excellent and like most restaurants in Elounda very reasonably priced. It’s setting is lovely and looks very magical at night. The fish dishes in particular are lovely.

The food in Kanali taverna is excellent. They have great service and amazing view when the sun goes down! You can take a taxi to go there or you can walk 30’ from Elounda centre.
