Great taverna off the beaten track but worth the effort. Good honest food at reasnoble price with a friendly service. We have been eating here for about fifteen years and I don't think the menu has changed much in that time! That said, it is usually the first restaurant we head for whenever we visit Crete.

Similar to Leventis in Pato Stalos. Up a steep hill but walkable from the 'tourist strip' in Stalos. Choice of local Cretan cuisine. Ask what 'specials' are on that evening. Excellent views through gorge to the sea. Good value for money

the taverna is in the upper part of Stalos Village, some kilometers from Kato stalos. We ordered many plates (appetizers and main dishes) and all of them were very delicious. The boiled meat with rice was amazing. The service was good and prices very low. The taverna is completely different from the tourist ones, near the sea in Kato Stalos.

The staff was very kind and food was also good. Nice view, you can go to this taverna by foot from Kato Stalos.

Views from restaurant excellent. Food average. Very quiet Saturday night so not a lot of ambience. Walked up and got taxi back to hotel,8 euros.

We had dinner in Merovigli twice! One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in. I can't recommend this place enough. You have to try it for yourself.
