An unforgettable place. Great people. Family atmosphere. Super comfortable rooms. Great food at the tavern. We first discovered a tavern with a friendly staff and good food. This year we decided to spend a few days .... who was here for sure come back.

Our room was above the taverna but it was not at all noisy. The location is tucked away down a winding road and right by a small beach. The food from the taverna was plentiful and the whole experience was very relaxing. The day we left, there was a whole washing line full of octopus, pegged out to dry in... More

We stayed near Stalos in April 2015 and only visited Ravdoucha by chance. It was by far the best beach we went to. Beautiful, tranquil, relaxing. And 'Waves on the Rock' really IS Ravdoucha. A fantastic Taverna serving wonderful, fresh, delicious food and hosted by such a lovely and friendly family. They made us feel so welcome and we ended... More

We have been visiting Crete for over 20 years, and travelled all over, but Wave is by far the best Taverna: the friendliest family and staff, the most delicious, fresh food, and a view unsurpassed, especially at sunset. We visit regularly with family and friends, and have done so for years. A gem! Rosalia and Stuart Milliganaki

When we went to this little cozy restaurant, we felt as if we were home.The fish was caught in front of our eyes and it was cooked in a wonderful way, the vegetables, fruits, the dessert-everything was great! We love Hary who even gave us a bottle of his home-made olive oil. It's a MUST to go there!

We too had to wait quite a while for the food which was good. I had the special of the day: goat. Perhaps one of the animals balancing on the top of the cliffs had fallen down? The dish was tasty but full of crushed bonefragments. But recommendable. The location is the best possible, so it can't be a disappointment... More

Perfect little taverna next to the lovely Ravdoucha beach, serving fresh and delicious Cretan food under some shady mulberry trees. We've visited several times and highly recommend the zucchini balls, the mixed seafood plate and the okra. Our friends also loved the rabbit and the lamb stifado. The prices are great too and the staff are genuinely lovely people who... More

Great location, far from the crowd, set on a terrific beach with a natural pool with clear, shallow water and a protected passage to get to the open sea. The apartments are large and confortable and the taverna makes some of the best food we had in Crete. Sounds like heaven in earth, doesn't it? no wifi
