A very cosy place, we were sitting next to an open fire place in the evening that warmed our tired legs after hiking. The service is spledid and very personal. So friendly people all over Crete, but here they topped it. Menu recommendation - the days special!

Authentic Cretan food, high quality, ingredients highly fresh, with a very sweet welcome from Mado. We had the mezze, and in particular the fried mushrooms were amazing, we're still enjoying the memory ;) A very nice way to discover local cuisine with high quality standard.

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.

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!
