“YUM for Breakfast and Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

After being recommended to try the breakfast for the bargain price of 3.60 euros we thought why not. You get quite an epic cooked breakfast plus a coffee or tea for that price. Well cooked, quick and filling - not horrid Greek Bacon or Sausages either - these were absolutely delicious. Service is friendly and good, they could not have been more helpful

We asked for two take away sandwiches to take with us to the airport (the airport food is expensive and rubbish). We had Mozzarella and ham and these were one of the best rolls we had. So glad we brought them with us. They had put tissues in the foil to soak up any of the moisture so that the rolls stayed nice and dry - genius. Can recommend for a decent eat at the airport or on the plane rather than the rubbish that they serve.

This has a great spot opposite the beach so you could watch the world go by and see the people cooking on the beach!

“Why has it taken us so long??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

My hubby and I have been coming to Elounda for many years on holiday and now are fortunate to live here. Last night was the first time we had ever been to Cypriana. It was very quiet (quite late as well..) but the meze was gorgeous. 10 dishes for 20 euros, all freshly cooked. Service was with a smile and with plenty of help with choosing the dishes. Today we went for the breakfast and were amazed at the value. A big mug of tea (coffee and fresh juice available as alternatives), 2 eggs, 2 bacon, sausage, beans, toms, toast and jam.....Best breakfast we have ever had in Elounda bar either cooked at home or at the Akti Olous when we used to stay there. Recommended to all...

“Maria is still here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Even though you may not see Maria, she is still here, just busy in the kitchen. The mezes here are excellent, as are the breakfasts, and the welcome is always very warm.

“Perfect hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

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.

“Really nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

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
