Vassilias Taverna it's a must if you go to Falassarna Beach. We went there for lunch and the home made food was fresh and delicious. It has a lovely garden where the kids had fun.

Vassilis taverna was one of the highlights of our stay in Creta. The place is typical without looking tacky, extremely welcoming and cozy: You can choose between the beautiful garden and the patio where a gentle breeze is constantly blowing. Nice, relaxing chill-out Greek music in the background, spotless tablecloths (not a standard in Creta). The crowd: young couples, families,... More

Lovely restaurant, nice service. We had the chicken and pork souvlaki which were delicious and very well served! Amazing price, with drinks we paid 18euros! The best we went in Falassarna. There are signs to indicate the location.

We were recommended this tavern by a german guest in the hotel. You drive through the fields (not literally) and between greenhouses to find it. There is seating inside or in the garden. The tables have linen tablecloths and the seats have cushions - very welcome. The service was excellent and so was the food. I had souvlakia which was... More

We found this little taverna from Tripadvisor reviews, we are staying nearby and wanted somewhere for good food and a beautiful view, this provided both! You wind down little lanes through the agricultural plain above Falasarna beach and there is parking opposite the taverna. The gardens here are lovingly tended and you can choose to sit in the garden, on... More

We had dinner here twice on our recent trip to Crete. The food is excellent with a wide variety of traditional Greek dishes (including seafood and meat dishes and fantastic specials which change daily), all delicious. The outlook to sea and the lovely courtyard were beautiful and the service was fantastic. Complimentary dessert and raki to finish. Best home-made taverna... More
