When you're on holiday a meal is not only about the food, it's about value, atmosphere and whether you feel anyone actually cares whether you enjoy the evening. The menu has changed here and is focusing more on meze - which is fantastic value at 10 plates for E20, and the welcome is genuinely warm and friendly. We enjoyed all the meze plates, which are too numerous to list and we left very full, second visit there was newly made moussaka on the menu, which was as good as any I've had. We left with a warm glow and vowed to make it our first night meal again on our next visit.

We came here a few times 3 years ago and they had traditional greek food. The menu has changed a bit now. Everyone does the trad stuff, and Cypriana has gone a bit more day-time feel. I still like it, and whilst I am not one for Brits abroad kind of thing, I did really enjoy a couple of fab english breakfasts

This had been one of our favourite tavernas, on a previous holiday to Elounda in 2011, so as it was close to our apartments we decided to try it on our first night in Elounda, this year.

Although the taverna now caters more to the daytime snack type diners, it is still open in the evenings, with a smaller menu. We opted for the mezze for 2 , 20 euros, excellent value. You choose 10 items from an extensive selection, each was freshly cooked and delicious.

The service was as friendly as ever and we were welcomed back like returning family

We had lunch her a few times and the special omelettes were a treat a good pick up after a heavy night ,Maria hasn't changed her banter is as good as ever .The place has changed from a taverna into more of a snack type bar but there meze consisting of 10 choices for 20 euros was a tasty gift

This taverna is situated opposite the beach. We had a fairly ok lunch there, one day.Having read other rave reviews for this taverna, maybe we were just unfortunate on the day we went.Thefood was just ok - the usual Greek salads, stifado, moussaka etc, along with 'tourist stuff ' - chips, sausages etc.We found the staff a bit lax, and didn't particularly enjoy the experience, as it felt more like an English cafe, than a Greek taverna. There are better traditional tavernas along the same strip of road, on either side of this taverna.
