Run by Maria and her husband, the welcome and service are second to none, the views across the bay are spectacular whatever time of day. We cannot recommend the Cypriana highly enough. And they do take away if you are... More

We mainly had brunch there,... More

Only ever used this restaurant for snacks and drinks, but decided to give it a try. Maria has her own cook book so went to see how good her home made food is. She is quite a character with a wicked dry sense of humour and very attentive. The food is fresh and cooked each day, no potted meals. I... More

We arrived in Elounda at almost midnight, thinking it was too late to find a place to eat. But there was Maria, greeting us and assuring us it was no problem to make us delicious food. We ate at Cypriana several times and can't thank Maria and Giorgios enough for making us feel so well looked after during our stay... More
