I stumbled across here early evening on my second day in Elounda. I was made to immediately feel at home which hasn't always been the case when dining out alone as although generally accepted, it seems to leave some people uneasy. With recommendations on food, and a stunning view out across the harbour, I was already sold. That was before... More

We're a family of 4 currently holidaying locally. We visited Lotus Eaters after reading the recommendations here and this restaurant surpassed all expectations. From the Moroccan lamb, the spaghetti bolognese to the homemade curry and the peppered steak the food is superb. We've eaten here twice already and are booked in already. Right by the sea and run by two... More

The location at the port and very likeable service made it a reau enjoyable dinner. The hosts take care of tourists and were honestly concerned with our well being. Some dishes were delicious (Maroccan lamb, fresh pita bread, shrimp or feta saganaki), others rather average for Greece (taramosalata, anchovies or octopus). Good place to eat with solid cooking and very... More

We ate at this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews we had read and were glad we did. We live in Greece so are used to Greek food done well so were keen not to fall into any tourist traps in Elounda.....although the couple running the restaurant aren't Greek the food was pretty good. We ate Prawn Saganaki, chicken curry... More

Myself and my partner visited elounda for the first time last week and were recommended this restaurant. We booked a table and when we arrived all other tables were reserved (always a good sign). We were not disappointed-the staff were very friendly and provided excellent service, the food was amazing and cooked to perfection. We are both seafood fans so... More

My wife and I visit Elounda each year and every visit to Lotus Eaters is phenomenal. By far the best place to eat in Elounda. The calamari and Morrocan spiced lamb is phenomenal, along with everything we have eaten at the taverna and we have tried most of the menu over the years! My wife usually requests a cheese cake...

Go straight to this restaurant and bypass the others – you will not be disappointed. We ate here three times during our trip to Crete. There is something for everyone. All dishes are freshly cooked and served very appealingly. Service from the owner, Daniel, is polite, helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. He advises on all dishes and explains why... More
