Perfectible service

Your typical taverna, same dishes, same prices more or less. Quality is good, service is so-so, could be friendlier. Overall good eating option.

We stayed in Kissamos for the first 2 weeks of September. In the taverna we had red snapper and swordfish, all with homemade fries (not some already bought frozen ones).

I'm on Crete every year for 20 years. I always visit my friends - family Papadakis. As always, good food, nice atmosphere and view of the bay. Being in Kissamos need to visit this place.

The food was pretty good, especially the meatballs. It's an old taverna but they are not really investing in a new look; the lights are florescent which gives the place an old fashioned feel. The same guy is running waiting tables, inviting new guests, and serving food. But it still seems popular probably due to the food.
