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

we have eaten here 50% of our stay in Kissamos. The grillled octopus is perfect! Also the porksteak is great.

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
