The restaurant is a hidden at the Spinalonga Penisula just in front of Elounda (not to be confused with the much more famous Spinalonga Island nearby). The setting is absolutely gorgeous and very romatic. It is a seafood restaurant and is rater expensive – but IMO it is totally worth the money.
To get to the penisula you can either walk along the Elounda waterfront to the south and cross over at the embankment (about 1.5 km from the city center). Or you can go by car, like we did, look carefully at a map first because the road is a bit tricky (at least it was when we went). Coming from the main road in Elounda the road Akti Olountos, which run along the coast is very narrow and only one car can pass at a time. It was not possible to go via the other road shown on google maps though.

At the end of the embankment we had to cross this old narrow bridge.
After our meal, though it was hard to detach from the stunning view, we went to explore the sorroundings.
