Really good home cooked food and totally typical ! The service is amazing, we enjoyed every moments there (and we were there many times..). You can have your meal just in front of the sea, the landscape is (really) beautiful ! So to cut a long story short it is the place to be ! Nico and mag

Cannot complain about the food itself which was OK for the value/price ratio, however we were more than surprised about the snail speed of the service - we had to ask for the menu ourselves after 10 minutes! Food was OK, but be aware - seafood is refrigirated and not fresh as they advise. There are definitely better restaurants in... More

Me and my girlfriend went to Crete for two weeks. We have/had a hotel right next to the sea and decided to try each and every tavern here - The Cellar Tavern is officially the worst of all of them (we have tried 5 from 8 I think). They do have multilingual menus (very badly translated btw.) but don't let... More

We've spent a week in the end of June in Kissamos and found this restaurant only half way through our holiday. Nice location, very friendly and approachable staff and the owner who is always there and looking after clients and his personnel. The food is perfect, proper home made, especially moussaka! we enjoyed every evening there and we definitely will... More

We were in Western Crete for a fortnight from 10/06/14 and, having a hire car, travelled the island extensively (some 1800km in 14 days!). Though we were staying in an All Inclusive Hotel we lunched out in a different place every day. On the first Sunday we visited Kissamos and, come lunchtime, walked along the sea front restaurants to see... More

Had a meal here based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Having had literally hundreds of meals in Crete, I can only judge the food served as poor. If th Mousaka won a prize it must have been the only entrant. I don't think I've ever had worse. The "Greek Salad" was bulked up with shredded cabbage - which... More

This was one our favorite places for lunch or early dinner in Kissamos. Located right on the water, it has fantastic views. They were very friendly and hospitable and the food was great.

We are just back from an amazing holiday in Crete and one of our favourite eateries was The Cellar in Kissamos. We had out breakfast there every morning and the home made marmalade blew us away. I also loved the French toast and local honey. Stelios always had a friendly welcoming smile and we just had to take some of... More
