This is a great Taverna with wonderful food and service, the views are also spectacular. There was a great variety of traditional Cretan food and also other dishes available. My partner does not eat meat and so the fresh fish was a fantastic choice for him. The staff were friendly and professional we ate here quite a lot during our... More

We were lucky to be staying near to this Taverna and thank god we decided to try it because once we did we didn't want to go anywhere else. The food is excellent but its all the little touches that make it truly an enjoyable eating experience. The starter taster plate of garlic mashed potato( must have with drizzled olive... More

Excellent service, excellent food, beautiful place and THE VIEW!!! Driving there from Elafonisi was an incredible drive and arriving there to see the sunset behind the rain clouds was breathtaking.

What is the experience you seek when you go to a restaurant..? A good meal and a good atmosphere.. Well, if you are lucky enough to visit Falasarna in Chania, Crete, do your self a favor and visit this restaurant. One advise though, the best time to go and enjoy your meal is at 7.00 pm where the sun is... More

We ate here on 3 occasions during our recent stay on Crete. We would have visited more but it was 30min drive from where we were staying. The restaurant has a stunning view of Falassarna Bay, and subsequently the amazing sunsets. It would be hard to find a more romantic setting. The food is really really good, the staff friendly,...

I wanted to love this restaurant, honestly I did. It looks so cute and quaint like a little family owned place. The place was clean, the staff was polite, and the views of the land below and the ensuing sunset were just out of this world!!! However, I can't say the same for the food! We ordered some snails, fried... More

Having dinner at Taverna Spilios is a one of a kind experience. Food: Superb. Try their grilled bread with olive oil, their moussaka (the best in all Crete, I swear!), the rabbit, the lamb...Everything is fantastic, genuine, simple and cooked with love. The price is more than honest. The location, absolutely stunning! I would adore to return, I'd be back... More
