Excellent food in a lovely garden

Stopped for lunch here at the end of ten days in Crete eating Cretan food. This was the best location out of all the Tavernas we stopped at. Set in a beautiful garden with views out over the bay. The food was arguably the best we had in Crete with the exception of a braised cuttle fish dish I... read more

This location is conveniently close to the 'carbian' beach of Fassernas (although you need to drive for 3 min). We started with the tzaziki with cretian style bread (slightly toasted with home pressed olive oil and a pinch of oregano). After we had a typical greek salad with homemade cottage cheese and a plate of fresh shrimps. We also had... More

Brilliant place to enjoy the traditional Cretan cuisine, I've tried several restaurants in a 7 days holiday around Kissamos and Falassarna and this is one was clearly the best. Food was delicious, I've had lamb souvlakia and my partner had a portion of grilled fish - we both enjoyed them and you could easily see that ingredients used were fresh... More

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 enjoyed a wide choice of appetizers (fried pumpkins fried eggplants, tamaras, fried spinach cake, all recommended and very good boureki. The view and location are also very nice. 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.
