A late review - we have visited Kaaren's for the past couple of years just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our meals at Kaarens. Kaaren herself was warm & welcoming, the decor is fresh & eclectic.

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.

Just returned from a fab week in Elounda. Tim and Kaaren run a fabulous restaurant with a couple of nice, very British touches. Chic and tastefully decorated. Had two very tasty breakfasts there as we were self catering. Would definitely go back. Sally (Emley, West Yorkshire)

A beautifully cool departure from the lovely beach, elegantly decked out and spotlessly clean. Karen and Tim are great hosts; attentive, friendly and great fun yet still creating delicious lite bites. We were also lucky enough to squeeze in one of their delicious Sunday roasts before departing for the airport that evening. Both Karen and Tim were extremely helpful with... More

After a hard day at the beach "well hardly" Kaaren's is the ideal spot to sit and chill with a cold drink and to watch the world go by. Kaaren and Tim are very welcoming and equally efficient, Kaaren running the bar and Tim in the kitchen. Its clear to see they are both very proud of their establishment which... More
