Amazing service, amazing staff and amazing food! Not sure why this isn't higher up on the ratings as was probably the best meal we had whilst in Crete!! Great value, home made proper greek food, extremely generous portion sizes and all fresh! Even the cheese on their Greek salads was made fresh by them using their own milk! They don't... More

This was our favourite restaurant in Kalyves - ate there several times and were never disappointed. Most of the cooking is done by Irini and it's all delicious. Try the Chicken with peppers. She's very happy to share her secrets. Service was also excellent - daughter Katerina and her nieces. Lovely food - lovely friendly family. One good reason to... More

This Greek restaurant is fantastic,if you want to go to a family run taverna which serves up real Greek home cooked food. The welcome is warm and genuine and your fellow diners are Greek and a few tourists,plus the elderly Greek men putting the world right! The Greek salad at 5 Euros is huge,and contains cheese from their own farm,delicious.... More

Ate lunch and dinner here several times. Wait staff was courteous. Food was excellent. House wines and beers were equally refreshing. Nice setting adjacent to an old olive oil mill. Prices are incredibly reasonable and portions are bigger than most tavernas. You won't be disappointed.

Now called O'Milos, this is probably the best value taverna in town. Food is top notch and so unexpensive it makes it even better. Service is friendly and efficient. A must visit in Kalyves.

I was never keen on the old Zorbas... Sorry ! But now under the stewardship of Ireni, who has looked after us for many years in The Square, this Taverna has bloomed into one of the best in the village. The atmosphere, the views, are quite lovely, as is the food and service. Please don't miss this lovely little restaurant

Milos is the new venture for Yiannis and Irini formerly of Gero Platanos under the plane tree in the Square. They have transferred all the positive qualities to the new restaurant:- excellent quality traditional Greek food at great prices with the family hospitality to set it all off. You can simply drop in for a drink if you wish and... More

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants but it has changed hands and is very different. Not sure about it.

Today we had the dinner at The Mill, on the square. The hospitality were so warm and good that we will return! Exellent fried eggplants, fried small fishes, moussaka and fried feta. So, so tasty food! Taste yourself!
