We went on a Monday night (Greek night with small band and dancing) What a great night. Full of energy and great Greek tunes. Very much recommended. As well as all that, the service was great, in particular from George, Maria and Manos. Of most interest to us was the food though. Delightful. We have been in elounda for almost... More

Great service and smiling staff but the food is not all that and as usual you get pommes frites/chips to the meat and not potatoes as is common in many restaurants in Crete. The food is not bad but its no way near wow. I would try another restaurant if I should pass Elounda again.

Had an amazing meal here. Perfect if you love fish and seafood. They so various platters for two or are happy to customise to your tastes. The staff were very friendly, lovely and happy to discuss any dishes. Best meal of our holiday so far. This should be higher than it is in the ratings.

We went for breakfast when we first arrived and we're drawn back by the lovely staff George and Maria. I had continental breakfast only disappointed that didn't have yogurt. We went back for another breakfast and 2 lunches. If you like snacks they are provided but also a full menu. There is a guy that's front of house and attract... More

During our recent visit to Elounda we visited Cypriana on two occasions. The first time we had a lovely family meal thanks to Maria, Manos and George. During our second visit which coincided with our last night in Elounda, the Cypriana was staging a Greek night. What a fabulous night it was. Music, dancing on tables, Greek dancing by Manos....

It's cheaper than the taverns in the main square in Elounda. Try the fish platter and the grilled octopus.
