This is a lovely Taverna with a beautiful outlook across the bay. The food is delicious and the waiters are all very friendly. Will definitely be back there next year.

Lotus Eaters is a nice restaurant run by the English owner and his gorgeous wife with local recipies. It lays perfectly to the water and the site is excellent and friendly. Get the story of the restaurant and the owners – it’s fascinating.

Every time I visit Elounda I have to have their prawn curry. I make an awesome one myself but this comes close to mine, I ask Daniel to make it a tad spicier and it’s delish!
