Let's start by saying, if I were to come back to Crete, this place would be first on my list to revisit. I'll recount the preceding lunches of my holiday so far... 1) A fifty euro uninspired tourist trap serving mediocre fish 2) a €1.20...More

Popped in for lunch and to enjoy the views from the rear balcony overlooking the bay. It’s a nice spot and whilst it doesn’t look much from the outside it’s nicely decorated and has a surprisingly large menu at reasonable prices. It’s a trek up...More

Excellent view, great food and friendly service - but not good if you are allergic to cats! Recommend to get here to see the sunset, but great views over Elounda at night. Food is great and plenty of it at a very reasonable price.

This little eatery is off the beaten track... a family run establishment. The food is very good and very reasonable. You are also blessed with an amazing view. Get a taxi to The Hope, as it is up quite a steep hill or two.

We had a long walk to this place, the dishes were good although there was no butter and no vinegar, a beautiful view and staff friendly!

The Hope is not somewhere you stumble across. It's off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Very homely. Helpful, friendly staff. Lovely home cooked food which tastes of the fresh ingredients it's made from.

There is a car park a short walk from the restaurant. It is signposted. If you drive through Elounda towards Plaka there is a road that leads directly to this or I think there is a road from the centre of Elounda that goes... More
