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

Vassilis was our favorite restaurant in Falassarna. They have a lovely greek-style garden with many beautiful statues and plants, which created a very natural cosy experience. We sat in the garden at night, but I imagine it has also beautiful day views of Falassarna bay. The service was excellent, the food equally excellent and price was very good. We also... More

We went 4 times in a row and sat every night in the garden while our son played on the swings. The dishes were tasty, very generous portions and good value for money. Our favourites were the Cretan salad with soft goat cheese, the baked aubergines and the lamb slouvaki. Unexpensive and decent house wines. Friendly waiters. Keep up the... More
