We booked this Restuarant before we went on holiday. Looking at trip advisor it suggested we did, so we did. I know why this place has people queuing up. The food, scenery, service and overall experience is something that you will struggle to find anywhere in Crete. Many thanks to Daniel and his fiancé for making our dinner so special... More

We stumbled across Lotus Eaters one evening a couple of nights into our 1 week holiday and I remembered the name from Trip Advisor. We were unable to get a table that night as the restaurant was fully booked, and for the next couple of nights also. However we were fortunate that they had a table free on the last... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. It is a bit different from the other restaurants in town, maybe slightly more expensive offering some Greek classics and other dishes. Daniel and his fiancée offer a slick and attentive service. Nice views over the water complete the ambience. Well worth a visit but very popular so you... More

Emailed and booked before leaving England. Quick response from Daniel. Booked for my daughters birthday, excellent table with "happy birthday" sprinkles! A warm welcome, excellent food and a surprise cake with candle! Did try to book again whilst in Elounda but fully booked. Cannot recommend highly enough!

We were fortunate enough to book a table here on our last night in Crete. The restaurant is situated on the edge of the main pedestrian marina area with a gorgeous pergola overlooking the water. It is a very intimate setting and as such reservations are a must for the evening service. The food was spectacular- traditional Cretan dishes that... More

Four of us went to TLE tonight on the basis of : #1 Trip Advisor reviews and # proximity to the Elounda Mare complex. While we had a good meal on site at EM, the price was astronomical for the amount of food, even though quality was high . TLE however had excellent food with very moderate pricing (€91 for... More

This restaurant is a must if you are staying in and around Elounda. Be warned booking is essential as it is very popular and if you want a table with views overlooking the sea, then it's advisable to book as much in advance as possible. Hosts Daniel ( the English owner) and his fiancé Andrea from the moment you walk... More

The owner was an ex pat and very efficient and welcoming. To get a seat you would need to book early on as his tables were booked up for nearly the whole week
