If you are coeliac, or just eating gluten free, head for this lovely little place. Daniel is very knowledgable about gluten free diets, and is more than happy to do all they can to provide you a gluten free meal. We leave for the UK tomorrow and are really sorry not to have been able to eat/drink here more. A... More

Ate at The Lotus Eaters a couple of times whilst staying in Elounda. Meant to go back again but got sidetracked. Lovely setting at the end of the restaurants heading towards the causeway. Meals were excellent with lots of little extras thrown in. Daniel and Adreena looked after us very well during our visits. Thoroughly recommend for a nice evening`s... More

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary meal and the owners went over and above the call of duty. They had a lovely display on our table and had a special dessert for my husband and myself. The meal was absolutely wonderful and the little touches done by the owners made the occasion very special.

This is a belated review, from our holiday in June/July 2014 but it felt important to acknowledge that over the three trips we have taken in Elounda, since 2011, we have noted constant improvement to the already superb quality of food and service in this restaurant. We have eaten here quite a number of times and experienced terrific food and... More

This seafront restaurant gives fantastic service, value for money and a friendly atmosphere. The food is lovely especially the fish. The owners can't do enough for you. Well worth a visit or maybe several if you are in Elounda.
