Very good tavern

That was the second best tavern on Crete. There is possibility to eat outside in the garden, which I recommend as it is very nice to seat there and watch the sunset. There is place for kids to play and have fun. Food is very good, the staff is good.

We stopped for lunch here last month and were warmly welcomed by the family who run it. The setting was nice in a lovely garden with a view to the sea. Service was attentive (although we were the only people there) and everything we had was tasty, especially the Greek salad which was the best we had in Crete in... More

Nice view, traditional decorated with great garden and friendly staff. The food was nice but I wanted more variety at the menu. I enjoyed my meal though, it is worth to visit! Last but not least, it is very clean!

Very nice restaurant, great view, green garden, very tasty food. I ordered lamb souflaki and my husband ordered special pork in orange and honey souce, both dishes were great, served with fried potatoes, salad and some yogurt souce. The design of the place is really beautiful also.

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 ate... 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
