We dined at the Lotus Eaters on two occasions. One, a breezy evening with the screens down to keep everyone warm and comfortable and the second on a much warmer Saturday evening with a night lit view of the harbour. The waterside setting,simple elegance and ambient music contribute to the welcoming and friendly atmosphere created by Daniel and Andreea. The... More

We enjoyed 2 visits to the Lotus Eaters in our week's stay in Elounda. The setting was perfect, the food fabulous and the service friendly and efficient. As a coeliac, I particularly appreciated the knowledgeable help with gluten free choices.

Really great lunch and good service. All the food was great from the simplest hummus to more extravagant mains like lamb tagine. Excellent house wine too. Went a second time but was closed on Tuesday lunchtime.

We went here one night. Food was good and everything was very nice. They were very friendly and welcoming. I guess the main attraction here if for Brits since place is run by a very nice couple from UK.

Lotus Eaters in on the waterfront in Elounda, Crete, not far from Spinalonga which featured in the book, The Island. There are a few tables inside, but the veranda has windbreaks for protection while still allowing contemplation of the sea view between courses. The owners Daniel and Andreea are very attentive and thoughtful but are not overbearing. The house wine... More

We picked this restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews and we were not at all disappointed. A beautiful setting on the water, fantastic food and really lovely service from the owners. We tried six choices from the sharing menu including the cheese saganaki, prawn saganaki, mussel saganaki, Courgette crisps, peppers as well as the lamb main and a Greek... More
