Just over a month ago we returned from our annual trip to Crete and as usual we had a wonderful holiday. Every time we go to Crete we try a new place for part of the holiday but always we spend most of the time at our favourite ‘home from home’, Flisvos in Frangokastello, and we often wonder why we...

It is now over a month since we returned from our third holiday in the beautiful village of Frangokastello. As with last year we decided to stay at the Flisvos Taverna, bur extended our holiday to two weeks! My husband, son (nearly 18) and daughter (nearly 14) and myself unanimously agreed that this was the best stay yet!! Our initial... More

This Taverna makes a wonderfully refreshing change. It is well run, beautifully situated close to the sea with a backdrop of mountains 10 minutes away. The restaurant is excellent with authentic local food. Rooms are not luxurious but are situated in such a lovely spot it doesn't matter. Close to the port of Chora Sfakion for ferry hops to other...

Go to Flisvos for fish, caught by taverna's own boat. Spiros and Stelios have created a terrific place here: sit right at the water's edge and enjoy the beautiful view. (Check out the pics on TA.) In the past we've had lovely tsipoura with mountain greens; this year calamari, sardelas and tuna souvlaki. There are rooms too.

We arrived late in the afternoon to Frangokastello and decided to get a room. Looking around we saw this place which was nicely situated close to the sea. They had rooms and we're not disappointed. Really nice, cheap, and the food in the taverna is excellent. If you look for a nice and laid back place, go here.

We loved our first visit to Crete and Flisvos Taverna was brilliant. A friendly welcome by the owners, fabulous food and excellent service by Yanni. The room was spotless and was cleaned for us every day. The most beautiful place for one of our best holidays ever and we can't wait to go back there. Highly recommended.

This is our second stay at the Flisvos Taverna Rooms. The rooms are simple but clean, the rooms at the front of the taverna have wonderful sea views whilst the rooms at the rear have both mountain and sea views. If you want a taste of authentic Cretan hospitality and traditional village life then this is the place to come.... More

For the last 25 years we have been holidaying in Crete for a month in September/October and when there always spend the major part of our holiday in Frangokastello staying at the Flisvos Taverna rooms or apartments. Nothing much changes there year on year and we love the place for its simplicity, location, great food and good atmosphere. Where better... More

I have just returned from a fortnight at the Flisvos Taverna for the 5th consecutive year,I return each year because I cannot think of a better place to go.(please see my earlier reviews) Each day that I spend there I become more relaxed and less inclined to want to come home!. I note from the entries on Flisvos that there... More
