A choice of outside eating or over the road inside, although the outside eating terrace was covered due to showers. Very friendly staff and pleasant surroundings in both areas. The food was excellent and very reasonable. Good house wine too. We both wanted lamb but were told there was non at all on the menu, quite strange for Greece but... More

We liked the food, the price and the wonderful friendliness of Dimitrius and his family. We will always go there again when we visit Elounda

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed people watching opposite the beach whilst eating. Friendly family run cafe style restaurant. Food good and portions large. We had omelettes which were lovely but not exceptional but there was some amazing looking fish arriving at the next table! Very reasonably priced and fast service.

Right by the beach too so great for picking up yummy sandwiches and frappes :-) the staff are super friendly and you should try the spanakopitta, the spinach parcels. Im cypriot and these are traditional but they had a slight curry (samosa!) flavour which made these really really delicious!

Had a meal last night the Octopus Meze was cooked to perfection so tender, Maria you are a wonderful cook. The pork was superb. And the general atmosphere was joyous. If you are in Elounda head for Cypriana it is a must. Breakfast there is morning excellent value and plentyiful food. Liam - Lombard Travel incorportaing GreeceSunHolidays
