Amazing food, local produce beautifully prepared and presented. The proprietor spent time explaining the dishes, he obviously takes great pride in his establishment. There were two different menus costing €42 for 2 people including wine. All dishes were gorgeous (not salty!). We would love to visit again!

We visited Dan who runs this fab place through a recommendation, we were made to feel very Welcome and the food was excellent with very reasonable prices. The wine was amazing. We returned most days and managed to squeeze in a meal on our last day even though we were in a rush. I would recommend the spicy spaghetti bog.... More

We have eaten here several times now and it is not only our favourite restaurant in Elounda, but in the whole of Europe. We look forward to our next visit as... More

Opening night at Lotus Eaters (4 April 2014) was as always a culinary delight. Daniel and Andrea were attentive as ever with drinks on immediate seating at the table. Gave carte blanche to Daniel with regards to the food orders and were completely blown away with the delicious variety and quality of the Meze we were given. Our table was... More

We were in Lotus Eaters in october '13 and had a very good diner. Our Fish was prepared very tasty and presented well. The service was friendly and the host entertained us with a cosy conversation. The choice of Cretan wines is also very good. We plan to come back this year. Greetings from Greet and Eddy from Réliva at... More

Well worth the trip to Lotus Eaters - we visited based on reviews on here and ended up going twice in the week we were in Elounda. We visited on our first night and came back later in the week. Highly recommended for the quality of the cuisine and the very friendly service. Whilst the menu is not the longest... More

We had a meal in this restaurant on our first evening and sat outside and braved the blustery evening. The location is stunning..We could not have been better catered for and the owner was most attentive and friendly. The food was really lovely but apart from when you had fish my only gripe would be that they seemed to focus... More

read a lot about the Lotus Eaters.....and as we were staying just a few yards down the road we decided to call in. Not realising you needed to book we walked in on a packed Restaurant with no obvious spare seats, Daniel spotted us and escorted us inside the main building and sat us down by the bar. Menus in...
