Everything is sublime, the garden, the view, the food. Local products are the only thing they use and you feel this with every bite. Bit off the beach, on the hill, good signs lead you there. Good prices, good food, worth a visit!

I strong recommend this typical taverna if you stop in Falasarna and you... More

Nice little taverna with table spread throughout a lovely garden. The food is very nice, we had the grilled sardines and octopus with grilled vegetables all were delicious. The service is friendly and attentive. This is a great spot for a meal and to enjoy the sunset after a long day at the beach.

We drove a short way to find this restauarant set in an enchanting garden with great views, and are glad we did. We thought the moussaka was the best we had in three weeks in Greece, and our dinner was so good we came back our second night in this area. We bought a couple jugs of the house red... More

We have been to Taverna Vassilis many times over the years. The first time we went, we were told by a local that they serve the best food in Crete. He was right then and he is still right, even if we never saw that particular local again. The food is just great down to the smallest detail. And the... More

We have visit the Vassilis Taverna while on holiday in Kissamos. It has got a beautiful garden, scenic view overlooking the see, where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets. I wanted to try snails the very first time in my life and had to return it. It was burnt inside and I could hardly get it out. Then I ordered burgers... More

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.
