Our second visit, and as good as last year. Imaginative treatment of Greek standards with some North African dishes thrown in, and reasonably priced for what you get. Recommended.

We ate here after reading all the reviews on the site and it really does live up to expectations. Daniel is a suberb host. He's attentive but not in your face and does an amazing job of making you feel special and keeping you informed. My partner is coeliac and Daniel spent time explaining which of the main courses he...

This restaurant was the highlight of our stay, the service from Daniel is equivalent of any 5 start restaurant in London and the food a delight, anyone planning a trip to Elounda should make this place a priority.

Busy restaurant didn't hamper quality of food or service which was excellent. Our waiter (probably the owner) attentive, informative, funny but not over bearing. Food good and well priced. On seafront so can get a bit blowy but only enhances the experience. Go.

The views are stunning, especially at sunset, overlooking the... More

My wife and I spent 10 days traveling through the Greek Islands and Lotus Eaters was one of the highlights. First and foremost, Daniel is very welcoming and a charming host. The restaurant is situated right on the the water presenting a perfect atmosphere and the seafood was top-notch (we are sort of picky when it comes to seafood). Another... More

So happy we found this place. The food was delicious and fresh! I highly recommend the grilled seabass. Daniel is so warm and welcoming and very hard working. The restaurant was very busy but he still spoke to us and checked on us the whole time. The lady working there was very lovely too. A must visit!!!!

Went with family and friends and returned for a second time a few days later. Excellent food, friendly warm service and really good prices. A must try. Best restaurant we tried in Elounda.
