Perfect lunch spot!

We visited this restaurant many times during our two week stay in Elounda in September. It's opposite the beach and offered a welcome diversion out of the sun.

A perfect spot to pop into during a day on the beach in Elounda, for a Greek or Cypriot salad, a Mythos and some ice-cream, before crossing the road back onto the beach. Lovely staff - very friendly - good, simple food! Perfect!

Cypriana is great for an English breakfast but also has wonderful Greek and Cypriot food. The Venus chicken is to die for and Maria's own recipe. She has also now published her own recipe book.

We have visited this taverna for 2 years running and have never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The portions are extremely generous and on some occasions we have had to ask for a doggy bag! Good value for money too. Worth a visit.

Always a very warm welcome back by Demetris & Maria. We have used Cypriana for many years and have not had a bad meal in all that time - nothing is too much trouble, from excellent breakfasts to late night suppers. Comfy chairs and free standing fans all add to your comfort level. Well done Maria on your excellent cookery... More

You always get a friendly welcome at the Cypriana from lovely Maria and Megan. The traditional Greek food here is very good and good value for money too. It also might seem like a funny thing to say but their chairs are very comfortable.... trust me, this can't be said of the chairs in all of Elounda's restaurants!!

The Cypriana was a very nice taverna - we ate her once during our 2 weeks. It seemed the staff were very inteested in the many returning customers but this didn't really detract from our service. We had olive for starter - so many we couldn't finish them, but gave it good try! We had Afelia which was very good... More

We ate here nearly every lunchtime as it is just across the road from the beach. There is a good choice of food, always well cooked and reasonably priced The waitresses Megan and Reggie are lovely and make you feel very welcome
