The night time hike to Taverna Akrogiali from Finix Bay was challenging but it was well worth it as my partner and I had a wonderful and romantic evening there. It is possible to take a water taxi to the taverna from Finix Bay, Loutro or Chora Sfakion, should you prefer. The taverna is on the beach and we sat... More

We were walking to Marmara from Loutro but found the weather too hot. We stopped at this lovely Taverna for a cold drink. Costas welcomed us and we found a shady nook under a tree with a couple of beds to lie on. We spent the day there swimming and relaxing. Later we had dinner at sunset, food was very... More

We ended up here by chance after being a little disappointed by Finikias. And we did not regret the effort to get there. Great vibes, good food. Very friendly people and nice swimming (though better have some rubber shoes on the flat rocks).

We stayed here for four nights in June-July 2015. The location was awesome, very remote and peaceful, but we expected more from the taverna, more attention to detail is needed, also more attention to how customers are treated. The weakest point is food. First, when we arrived in Loutro, Pavlos, out host, was late to pick us up with the... More

The taverna run by Pavlos and his family is a treat, as long as you know what you are in for. The beach is rocky, but with very, very few other tourists as the bay is long and there are only a handful of houses on the beach. The service is very, very personal and you feel like a guest... More

Imagine a little hotel and taverna, right in the middle of nowhere, after crossing the deserted mountains of Sfakia, where goats are constantly playing their lives, right on the edge of the cliffs...You receive a warm welcome by Pavlos, an amazing guy who lives there all the year round. You have a raki, you swim in the warm waters of... More

We stayed by Akrogiali's Rooms in September 2014, for 4 days. It is fabulous place for people who are looking for quiet, close to beach place. Pavlos and his family are extraordinary friendly. You will really feel that they care about your staying. Mother's Moussaka is the best I've ever tried. The only one minus is that to the closer... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and had the best vacation. What makes this place so unique is Pavlos, the friendly, funny and amazing owner of this place. He remembers the names of the everyone and gives you personal care. The food is great and the vibe is very relaxing in the restaurant. We will come back again. We miss... More

After just spending three days in lykos my greek beauty and me felt so relaxed as if we had spent two weeks in the most expensive spa in the world!
