“Great for lunch.”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We ate here for lunch a few times during our stay in Elounda when we weren't spending a day by our pool. Kaaren's is situated right across from the beach with light and airy decor. Kaaren is a friendly host without being in your face. I had the greek salad twice and a superb chicken wrap on another visit. One of my daughter's had a chicken and bacon wrap on each visit, as she thought they 'were the best chicken wraps ever'. We also had burgers and omelettes and I mustn't forget to mention Kaaren's hand cut chips with skins on! All the food is freshly prepared and really tasty. Kaaren remembered my other daughter leaving all the tomatoes in her salad and so didn't put them in her burger on a subsequent visit! We were surprised that it didn't get more trade, as it ticks all the boxes for lunch. Hope you have a great remainder of the season. We said hello to Manchester for you!

“A family favourite!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Kaaren's was our preferred destination for lunch when we were spending the day in Elounda. Located just across the road from the beach, nice decor, mouth watering menu and specials board, we loved it. As a family of four with two picky teenagers, that's quite a challenge, though the free wifi helped! The menu was predominately English, but more posh gastropub than greasy spoon - Kaaren's is not trying to be a Greek taverna. We also got some great restaurant recommendations from Kaaren. She was always friendly, chatty and ready with advice on the local area. Would definitely recommend!!

“food with a difference .......”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

A lovely little bar opposite the beach in Elounda. Between them Tim and Kaaren produce food with a difference, especially Tim's Mushroom Pepperpot which I highly recommend you try. Do drop in for lunch when in the area you will not be disappointed.
