This famous restaurant, (where they filmed the TV series «Who Pays the Ferryman») has remained a warm and intimate, family-owned and operated restaurant with friendly service and a superb waterfront location, away from traffic, and offering spectacular views over Elounda bay to Spinalongha island, the setting is cool, airy and peaceful. The cuisine at Ferryman is offered with that extra touch of finesse that is hard to forget. Many dishes are difficult to find elsewhere, and starters such as the deliciously moist carob bread, smoked aubergine dip and mouthwateringly crisp pitta filled with cheeses or delicately flavoured horta will excite and satisfy the discerning palate. The horta – many varieties of wild green herb - are collected from the local mountains during winter months. Ask Akis how the wonderful freshness of the horta is maintained into the summer season, and maybe he will divulge his technique! The Ferryman prides itself on quality and imagination in all the dishes on offer, and all meals are prepared and cooked under the watchful eye of chef Yiannis Baxevanis who has won countless awards for his Greek cooking creations.
