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

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.

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
