The setting is excellent and is literally on the bank of the canal. The food and the service are good but it is pricey compared to others. We ate here once and originally were going to go back on our last night but subsequently ate at Olondi which we much preferred. The starters here are very good and the fish... More

The usual place in Greece and Crete with a little bit better tastes in a majestic site, which stays only at this. Sincerely, it's one of the restaurants I know located at the best spot all over the island. However, with all these advantages they can disappoint you. First of all we went there with 3 kids at 7pm, 2... More

We read about this place on Trip Advisor and found it with some difficulty. It was worth the effort. We had a great night here with lovely food, great service and even sat next to a table of Americans which we had seen few of on this trip. We would recommend the Kanali.

Visited Elounda and stopped here for lunch. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. It was quite busy but the service was very good. It caters for most tastes. We shared a Greek salad and smoked salmon and avocado salad, very good and reasonable price.

So many people told us to go to Kanali before our short break to Crete that I almost didn't want to go for fear of being disappointed, but they were all absolutely right. One of the best bits is the journey as you drive along a little track over the sea to an almost uninhabited island where Kanali sits twinkling... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal here on our last night in Elounda. A touch on the expensive side but the food was of the highest quality and the location was ideal for a special treat.

This place isn't easy to find. Down a hidden track road, along a causeway over a bridge, sharp right at the canal, nestling next to sunken city! White chairs and tables and a polythene windbreak tell you you are here. And then you bless TripAdvisor for giving you this joy. And joy it is. All fresh seafood lovingly and expertly... More

Stopped off for a snack and didn't eat for the rest if the of the day, large portions, excellent quality relaxing location What more can you ask for. Mainly a fish restaurant and not cheap but we had Greek salad, 2 beers, sardines, hand cut fries and bread and it was 25 euro which wasn't too bad.
