Established in 1977, Marilena has become renonwed for offering a high standard of Greek andCypriot cuisine in a traditional, eclectic and unique atmosphere including ‘alfresco’ dining in the charming vine garden at the rear of the restaurant.
Marilena’s long-standing reputation as one of Elounda’s finest restaurants is heightened by the décor, echoing the beautiful colours of the Greek islands, white, blue and ochre.
