We decided to try Lotus Eaters based on the excellent trip advisor reviews. My partner and I have been coming to Elounda for a number of years and this was our first time at this restaurant. It must be said we had high hopes based on some of the reviews here, but we were extremely disappointed. The restaurant occupies a... More

Friendly welcome, food was excellent - very tasty, and the house rose the best house wine - so far - on our holiday.

Beautiful location on the waters edge . We visited this lovely restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Everything we ordered was top quality ingredients and well cooked and good value. The house wine has obviously been chosen with care. The owner takes pride in everything he does and it is no wonder he has a full restaurant every evening .... More

We took my sister and brotherinlaw here for their first meal in Crete. They loved it and wanted to eat there every night! We visited three times in the week we were there and every time was faultless. Can't praise Daniel and Andrea highly enough for their service and the quality of the food. Sister and brotherinlaw are already counting... More

Our favourite restaurant in Elounda was a must to revisit (3 times in our fortnight holiday!) The service and standard given by Daniel and Andrea is second to none. Maybe a little more expensive but you get what you pay for. Great views on a lovely evening.

A lovely setting and both food and service were very good, chosen from a menu with plenty of choice. We ate during the first week of our holiday and would have returned , but frankly could not stomach another evening listening to the self aggrandizement of the owner.

Very popular restaurant run by English couple with host who likes to chat to you. As others have noted you will definitely find out how hard it is to work every night for seven months a year. The location is perfect and the food is high standard. However it is on the pricey side for restaurants in this area at... More

We enjoyed very good food in a lovely setting. However diners shouldn't have to listen to the host moaning about his earlier customers and telling everyone how hard it is to work 7 months a year
