My Family of 4 ate here on our last night of our holiday after waiting for a week to get a table (shows how great this place is!). Our Hotel Concierge and taxi drivers never recommended this restaurant to us despite the 5 star Tripadvisor reviews. We had the best experience here, the owners made us feel very special from...

This restaurant elegantly combines excellent food, a wistful waterside location and the true charm of Crete. Regular locals mingle seamlessly with visitors at this cozy dining venue. All things seafood find their way to the table with inspired preparation and served with elan. Daniel, one of the owners, is your waiter and gastronomic tour guide, truly embodies the essence of...

This restaurant was a lucky find for us while we were roaming around Elounda. It is small and intimate, right on the sea. There are very few table so it is wise to book ahead so as not to be disappointed. The owner Daniel and his girlfriend were very helpful and we took their recommendations on the food. It was... More

We made our annual pilgrimage to Elounda again this year and managed to secure a table at this restaurant which has become so popular that bookings are now needed a few days in advance. We were not disappointed. The owner Danny appointed a new chef at the start of the season and there has been no drop in standards. My... More

Had two fantastic meals here, catered well for the kids by offering smaller portions from the main menu. My eldest, brought up in the Masterchef era is a keen critic and voted it his best holiday dining experience. Would highly recommend Lotus Eeaters, the quality of food and the service were outstanding.

We ate here on the 16th August. It was recommended by a lady at the nearby book shop and we had also seen favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. No reservation but got a nice table due to a late cancellation. Choice of food was excellent. I had a pork dish which was really tasty and melted in the mouth. The... More
