We chose this reastaurant based on trip advisor reviews - they weren't wrong. Great location with excellent menu and quality of food. Service from this lovely couple was friendly and homely, helpful and just right. Don't forget to book!!! It gets very busy,

We had a delicious meal here last week and the food really is a notch up from all of the other meals we have in Elounda. Very friendly and attentive staff and they were very accommodating of our small (well-behaved) son. Lovely setting too for a romantic meal next to the water.

We had a great time here for dinner. The English owner is very personable and, along with his partner, really made our celebration special. The food was good too!

Simply DELICIOUS!! Really friendly people, on the sea and the food is the best we have tried in a long time... The chef Nikos creates alternative Cretan cuisine that is mouth-watering!!

What appealed about Lotus Eaters apart from its lovely location was that the menu offered something additional to the traditional Greek fare. There was a more African or Asian feel to some of the dishes such as chicken or fish curry or spicy lamb with aubergines and couscous although other more usual options were also to be found. The service... More

This place was fantastic, we often pick out the number 1 place in each area when we visit as rated on trip advisor. Its usually quite apparent why they have the top spot as rated, This was a lovely dining experience, the owner dealt with us personally on a very quiet end of the season day, and his attention to...

We've just returned from a trip to Elounda and discovered this small restaurant on the penultimate evening before returning home. We enjoyed it so much we booked again for our last evening. We were made very welcome and Daniel and Andrea were very attentive and informative. The food is traditional Greek, often with a twist. The Moroccan Lamb and Stifado... More
