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). Fishes were cooked nicely, and served with spices. Also, the taverna served us complimentary dessert - some kind of apple pie with homemede cream on top. Our waiter was very... More

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.

I liked everything I ordered: vegetables, fish and cakes! Very kindly family owners. The tavern terrace is right on the beach

We only stayed a couple of nights in Kissamos, but ate here both nights - absolutely fantastic veggie food. Loads of choice - the baked aubergine was melt-in-the-mouth, and the Boreki some of the best I've had. Horta cooked simply but very tasty too. Recommend for a trad Greek meal - got taken into the kitchen to view the choices... More

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.
