The staff at the restaraunt (the owner included in the face of Russian-speaking woman) is unprofessional, rude, and possibly bias towards customers from other nations. The tables are poorly served, we waited for a long time while she was arguing with someone at the counter. The argument was about a man asking politely to use a restroom while the owner... More

This cafe has amazing views but sadly lacks atmosphere and friendliness. Stopped here for a light lunch whilst sightseeing. The views were breathtaking but the service and food distinctly average. My salad was very small and contained one olive. It was as though we were a nuisance, suppose they have a captive audience and take it for granted.

We turned up about 5 pm after a day on Elafonnissi beach and stopped for a cool drink and had some salad and snacks. A coach party had just left so it was peacefully quiet. Not sure what the food is like in general but the views were worth the stop. We were literally above the clouds. Heavenly!

Rep. I visited two or three times. Each time the food was disappointing and the service quite slow. I and a colleague waited up to half an hour for each course and even longer for a drink refresher. The portions are huge, the food was quite nice but average and the seating is cramped and noisy. It is such a... More

We stayed at Amigdokefali during 8 days and moved a lot around the western coast. Meltemi is a genuine cretan restaurant for those who know to appreciate simplicity. The view is spectacular, the kindness of the owners is real and the food marvelous. This restaurant deserves to be tested, and not only as a stop to Elafonisi but also as... More

On your return from Elafonisi you should stop at this Cafe-Restaurant either to eat or have a coffee enjoying the stunning view.. the owner of the restaurant, Natalya, is from Ukraine but she cooks perfectly the Cretan dishes as she is married to a local.. actually if you eat there it feels like eating at home.. all the products are...

The spot at the restaurant has a very scenic view and it is much better to view it from the restaurant. So you might expect a typical tourist restaurant there, which you may have seen in many different places. But the people there are nice, they serve you good home-made food and drinks. So it is a recommendable place for... More
