If you are in Kissamos, you must visit Mr. Papadakis. The grilled Octupus was simply fantastic, the service fast and friendly, the price more than reasonable.

We walked along the seafront looking for the most authentically Greek taverna, and found Papadakis. Beautiful setting on the seafront, clear menu, huge portions (maybe not for everyone), zucchini fritters to die for. Free dessert.

We tried many restaurants and tavernas during our stay on Crete. To Papadakis we went the last but one evening of our holidays. That was a mistake :) We had only one evening to come back. The food is delicius. We had sword fish and mousaka. Both were very fresh and homemade. It's the kind of food you miss after... More

Perfect location and view. Excellent food quality and big portions. Free garnish for some seafood, free water and desert. Relatively slow food preparation.

Disappointing food, horrible salads, overpriced fish and strangely cheap meats, untrustworthy and dirty waiters who put fingers in your food and don't even say sorry. Never again.

Had dinner here one night. all of the food was delicious. The Pastitscio was really good. My wife had a mixed grill. The only problem was that they served my dish, and 15 minutes later my wife's came. I wasn't too happy about that. The restaurant is right on the water so there's some great ambiance. It definitely gets crowded... More
