After visiting Elounda in 2012, with regular visits to "Kaaren's", we hoped it was still there on our return this year and were so pleased to find it still in situ, with the same lovely relaxed atmosphere and charm we remembered. It's perfectly located with the sea directly in front of you and like 4 years previously, we visited it... More

No joke, it really is the best sausage butty in town! Not satisfied with what he could buy locally the owner here now makes his own secret recipe bangers and very tasty they are too! A portion of porky herby loveliness, have them on fresh bread with a bowl of hand cut, skin on freshly fried chips - fantastic. Kaaren's... More

This café / restaurant is opposite the tourist train pick up point, near the harbour and beach. The quay for boats to Spinalonga is also nearby, and also a frequent street market. Kaaren is knowledgeable and helpful with her advice on gluten free dishes. There is a choice of typical café and local dishes nicely prepared and presented at a... More

Can fault the warm service from Kaaren and Tim. Every year they buy in Blue WKD for ma and Strongbow for hubby on request. The atmosphere is the same as when we met then four years ago. If you want a lovely view of the sea and the village go and sit in the front seats of the venue. Only... More

Had a few breakfasts here this week and the poached eggs on toast are to die for. You may also want to sample some of Kaarens home made jams. She made us very welcome each day. Recommended.

Ate breakfast & lunch here on several occasions, when at the beach. Whilst not the cheapest in the area - you get what you pay for & the quality of ingredients shine through. The eggs are to die for (poached, fried or scrambled all perfect) & the home made sausages are amazing. Add home made jam (I think I was... More

Have eaten here many times over the last week and everytime we have been greeted with a warm welcome from Karen. Confused as to why others have complained about her perhaps it's their attitude that is the issue. We have tried most of the specials which are all lovely and cooked by Tim. My favourite being the ribs. The food... More
