Only managed to get a table on our last night if the holiday so it was thought to be a bit of s gamble. No need to worry, we had our best meal of the trip!! Wonderful atmosphere and super food. Cats were fab also Be sure to book a table early in your stay.

What a wonderful experience. The owner and his wife were so lovely and very attentive (incredible service for a Greek restaurant). The food was amazing and authentic. And lastly, the view is hard to beat- looking out directly on the sea. I would highly recommend coming for lunch when they are less busy- we really had a chance to hear... More

Since we have been here before, we decided NOT to listen to the invitations to come and visit other restaurants along our way. And again it was a very good decision. Daniel and Andreea are the perfect hosts in their restaurant and managed to get excellent cooks in their kitchen! We orderer several items form the menu to share it... More

Absolutely the best restaurant in the area: managed by a British guy and his Romanian wife, with two greek chefs. Food was simply the best, zucchini chips, fresh seafood (dont even think about frozen products), desserts, hospitality, view, everything. However, it comes at a price. On the other hand - you can pay similar or a bit less for uncertainty.... More

We have stayed in Elounda many times over the past ten years but not been sufficiently organised to gain a table at this 'stand out' restaurant. This year we made better preparation and secured a table on two occasions. Having already sampled most of the standard 'sea view' eateries Elounda has to offer and indeed the rather (on occasion ridiculous)... More

We came across Lotus Eaters towards the end of our stay in Elounda and it was so impressive we came back on the last night, The idea that Palio Kantouni can be ranked above this lovely restaurant is laughable and suggests that there is some "fiddling" going on with the rankings which we all know happens sometimes. Daniel is a... More

Loved this restaurant. You need to book a reservation. We were lucky the first night as people moved tables so managed to eat in the restaurant that night without booking but we re booked for our last night of our holiday. Food is amazing. Run my Daniel and his wife. Lovely couple. Even considering this for our wedding party meal.... More

We have eaten twice during our holiday at the Lotus Eaters and both agree that this is indeed top of the pile on all fronts. Because it's a smaller restaurant there is an attention to detail at every level.The food is impeccable,the service beats everything else around! Quality,Quality,Quality! Thank you Lotus Eaters for making our holiday so much better.

Our choice of Food was simple, pan fried sole and pan fried chicken but beautifully seasoned and cooked. Service is excellent with all dishes and drinks explained. The view is tranquil looking across the bay. One of our favourite places - but you can't just rock up, you need to book.
