Wether you are looking for a fabulous plate of fluffy scrambled eggs for breakfast or something slightly more substantial, Kaaren and Tim will be happy to oblige. The mushroom pepperpots are a must try, alternatively anything else on the menu is guaranteed to hit the spot. Excellent all round. Always one of the first places we go to when we... More

I have visited Kaaren's on many occassions and sampled much of the menu. Tim and Kaaren are always very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The Friday fish and chips is a treat when you're missing home and the full breakfast, including Tim's homemade sausages, hits the spot. Free wifi and Wii, bookswap and foodie magazines dotted about give... More

Yorkshire Pudding to die for with Chicken and all the trimmings - It was simple delicious. Kaaren and Tim thank you for your hospitality and friendliness in your very clean... More

I happened upon this little gem of a place whilst visiting friends in Elounda. Out for a walk and feeling a bit hungry I wandered in here for some food. I ordered a local lemon drink and one of Tim's homemade burgers. Fantastic, huge burget with a large pile of homemade chips. I decided to stay a whilst and sample... More

Stopped off for coffee twice. Offered either instant or filter. Good filter coffee on both occasions. My son had freshly squeezed orange juice. Nice beach style restaurant slightly off the main drag in Elounda. British feel without football - playing BBC Radio 2 in the background. People having English style breakfast near us.
