Glykeria restaurant was recommended by a local and we tried it on the way back from Elafonisi beach. Glad we did! We had the best taramosalata, Glykeria salad-a big and special green salad- and the slowly cooked pork shank which my husband totally loved. The french fries are also delicious and local Lyra beer is a must try for ale... More

I have no words to describe the culinary experience. We had dinner and lunch for 4 days consecutive after our first visit! Every dish felt like home made and we ended up our visit by getting extra Sfakianopites (with honey) to take away... It is simply a shame if you do not try the food if you are around.

Pork shank is the best dish we tried in this tavern, but greek spaghetti carbonara was very tasty as well..and very big portions in all dishes! Also, do not miss the special dakos (salad), The mousaka was not that good to our taste but they exchanged it with another dish without charge! The view over the bay especially during sunset...

The property is family run since 1970-s. Very good kitchen, nice atmosphere, good staff and superb view! We had a very good lunch there - soups, lamb and fish. All was very tasty! I DO recommend this place in Elafonissi over many others.

We chose Glykeria after reading the trip advisor reviews. Sadly, we weren't satisfied with the tastes that were far away from the Cretan quality. We ordered a Cretan salad that was nothing special (tomatoes at this time of the year are mature, red and sweet). I had a chicken with chilopites which was ok, nevertheless not even close to what...

Go in the evening to see the sunset- lovely. Book in August for a table on the right side. Food was good - service friendly if a bit slow. Not much fish choice but what they had was well cooked. Will go again.

It's near the Elafonisi beach. Very "Turistic place". Price a little bit high. Good quality. Stall very kind.Super Panorama. Not good in windy days.

Beautiful scenery and very good location for the sunset... traditional Cretan cuisine and affordable prices! Best place to eat after a long day in Elafonissi beach.

Glykeria is a small traditional taverna just 4,5klm from the famous beach of elafonissi, in the village of " Chrisoskalitissa".We offer the best of greek & cretan food since 1979......In conjunction with the sunset, an evening meal here is really an unforgetable moment..
