Top value

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.

When we first arrived we were concerned that this taverna had changed hands. it looked smart, updated and (a positive) less cats. We were given a warm welcome and found out what had been happening. No problems. Food was just as great and traditional, the new owners have not overstretched themselves, if anything we enjoyed the food even better. We... More

Me and my girlfriend had dinner there a number of times back in August, 2013. A warm and wonderful place where they truly have great traditional food from Crete and Greece. It's a restaurant placed next to a church, a great place to sit outside and alot of friendly cats. The restaurant is run by a family and it's a... More

This used to be Zorba's, which we fell in love with when we were here before. Slightly smarter, but same setting and the food was really good - best moussaka I've had in a long time. Very welcoming and clearly if you eat here more than once, it's definitely noticed and appreciated. If you don't like cats, don't sit here... More

Set in the square in Kalyves town, this taverna, now named O Milos, the Mill, is a delight if you like all things Greek. Friendly staff yes. Not all the items on the menu available, yes. The meals are cooked beautifully and are extremely tasty, from meat balls to stifado, very good. Beware not to order too much as the... More

Yanni and Ereni are back !! They have taken on Zorbas - renamed as The Mill. Situated opposite the church in the square. The food is better than ever with the most delicious Cretan food you may find in Kalives. The hospitality is faultless and you soon become an extended member of the family. You have to try the advocado... More
