We received a lovely warm welcome from the owner of Olondi the atmosphere and food was fantastic. We got a bonus night due to a cancelled flight so chose to return to Olondi as we enjoyed it so much.

Recommended to us by our parents. What a fantastic restaurant!! The food was AMAZING! Staff were very friendly and the owner was so lovely. He remembered our parents from their previous visits and took time to chat to us and recommend meals from the menu. The dessert he recommended was divine! Be prepared though...they do like to offer you Raki... More

We have visited Olondi several times and every dish we have ordered has been delicious, whether we have had a full meal of the fish platter or meze with wine. Ideal for a special occassion as the setting, looking out over the bay towards Spinalonga, is wonderful and the food, wine and service excellent.

This restaurant is really worth visiting :) Food is yummy, especially seafood! You also get an appetizer before eating and some fruits after which is free. We really enjoyed this lunch we had. I recommend this place if you are starving for good food :)

Great spot on the harbour away from crowds. Really good food cooked to order by the women of the family. Would go there again no problem.

This is a very good quality fish restaurant right on the sea front. Our sea-bass was beautifully cooked & presented ... & then expertly served (filleting the fish for us ... or 'opening' it, as I think it translates in Greek). Other food we were served, including one or two items 'from us', a generous touch, was also delicious. Can... More

There is just something about this place which makes it stand out from the others. Possibly the homeliness of the embroidered red tablecloths and the neatness of the set up, I don't know but I am certainly glad we went in as the food was fantastic. I had the garlic prawns and it was amazingly! Try it. The waiter we... More

Very personable and helpful service. We said what sort of food we were looking for and were expertly guided. Lovely complimentary mezzes before the meal arrived with good bread. Have tried the local shrimp dish - saganaki? and the huge rocket and parmesan salad which contained lots of delightful ingredients such as figs... Next time the stiffado (husband) and Dakos... More
