Really nice place for a breakfast and a late dinner

Good food and friendly staff. The place is very good for dinners but also for a morning breakfast near the sea.

We ordered a fish meze, and a tzatziki what was really good. Wasn't cheap, but it's right on the beach, so it's reasonable. The staff was very kind.

At the cellar you enjoy a really nice view with parking spots nearby but the food was not the best. The vinegar tasted really strange and all in all it did not taste that good.

Maybe it does not look like the fanciest place in the area (there are many Taverns nearby), but we found a “hidden” leaflet in Tour Agency nearby offering 10 menu choices for 10 euros each, and we found this option a good value for money, and tried most of these menus. We found the food very tasty, and can certainly... More

We enjoyed the sunset by the beach. The service was welcoming! Food was good. A bit pricy but a nice walk from out hotel, which made it even nicer

Food was disgusting; in my opinion was also old and heated several times (consequently I did not eat anything). Cook replied to my concerns with saying that is my problem if I do not like this dishes. Said enough.

By far the most crowded on seaside, we ate both meat and fish and they were perfect! Even though we rarely visit the same place twice we came here three times. Last day of our stay they all came to say goodbye! Amazing staff and amazing food!

After the trip to Balos Beach we found this place on our way to Heraklion, in Kissamos. The Cellar doesnt look fancy, it`s an classic greek family owned tavern but don`t judge it by how it looks (by the way - I love to spend my time as the people from the countries that i visit so this is the...

I ordered pasta with seafood and it was delicious. The portion of the pasta is also big which I think it is enough for two persons.
