We stayed at the Elounda Mare and visited the restaurant once. Lovely meal and great views and service. Definitely an alternative to the tavernas in the area.

The food, apart from the fact that is well overpiced it is not worth trying. I dont know maybe we were at the end if... More

This is a restaurant in the sister hotel to where we stayed. It was where we had our first meal in Greece and it was one of the best. It definitely set the bar very high. The Sommelier was very knowledgable and the service was top notch. Did I mention how amazing the food was??? The view was very nice... More

The Old Mill offers setting, service and excellent food. The wine list offers mainly Cretan wines and the sommelier makes sure yo get the best of the best. Like most of the restaurants in this hotel's group the prices are astronomical and unrealistic for most diners unless you are staying dine around.

The Old Mill in the Elounda Mare Hotel Crete is always a delight to visit. The food and service are excellent, it can be a bit pricey but when on holiday you deserve to spoil yourself occassonally.
