A very good taverna. Along with Limni at the nearby lake, it was by far the best we tried in Zaros. Good value, with excellent food, excellent service and a lovely ambience.

We stayed at Eleonas Cottages three nights and ate in the restaurant our first night -- eagerly. We'd read the glowing reviews here on TripAdvisor and were anticipating a wonderful meal. The setting was very nice, soft light and all the tables were full, and the service was quite good -- quick and warm and friendly. We were immediately served... More

It was a good affordable lunch on a pretty terrace but didn't offer anything above and beyond what you can get anywhere else in the area.

We stayed in one of the Eleonas cottages for a fortnight and ate at the restaurant every night. It's the most relaxed, enjoyable place. Manolis (the owner of the whole place) and Manto, who runs the restaurant at lunchtimes and in the evenings are delightful. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is great, traditional Cretan cuisine. There is a... More

We went here for lunch 2 times, the food is good. The envrionment is great as well. Your table will be stuffed with olive oils bread and herbs (all delicious). The food is not expensive at all, we had a 2 person lunch (sandwiches) for about 10euros. Can reccomend this to place to everyone.

Delicious christmas lamb and other food served in a homely setting. Good local wine (for a change), but they could promote their good local winemakers more (Douloufakis, Zaxarioudakis). Lovely place for a mountain stay. Definitely want to come back!

Top Class in beautiful setting. We had six meals there and can highly recommend the daily specials which depend on the fresh produce available.

We were in road trip in Crete and have discovered this beautiful place outside Zaros on the advise of other french tourists encountered on the road to Samaria, the day before. The landscape around the restaurant are beautiful and so calm! We were very kindly welcomed, the food was delicious, various and really cheap for this type of quality !!... More
