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

Good selection of food. Mousaka was good and all the grilled meat. Good stuff and excellent views. The garden is superb and very romantic.

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

Great service, nice location and garden, and great Greek food. Choose something from the hand written daily menu rather than the one printed, you won't be disappointed. I've been there many times and was always happy. The plate I enjoyed the most was lamb with yogurt cooked in the oven. They also have a very good house wine, don't waste... More

The owner is very friendly, speaks fluent English and French. You will enjoy a dinner in a beautiful and refreshing garden (forget some kitsch statues...) with beautiful flowers and trees. The dishes were huge and very tasty, especially the zucchini stuffed flowers. A unique and different restaurant in Falasarna area
