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

O'Milos, the Mill. Iannis and Irini, together with their family, are now running this traditional greek taverna. It is still one of the very best tavernas in Kalives, with traditional greek cousine at really low prices. As regular guests have been asking, they also have Maria's chicken pie on the menu. If in Kalives, this is really one place you... More

This restaurant is now closed, but has been taken over by Ireni and George and family who used to run O Platanias in the square, Now called O Milos (The Mill) and is well worth a visit for traditional Greek style cooking and hospitality. The ratings that I am now giving are for the new O Milos restaurant

We have been visiting this taverna since 1999. We usually go to to Kalives twice a year and meet our friends in Zorbas taverna. In that taverna you feel very comfortable.The food they serve is always perfect and also the atmosphere.

My hubby has to go here at least once a holiday to get his liver, best in town. We have a table over looking the sea, it's also always full of locals which is always a good sign

This is a well situated restaurant in the Centre of Kalives opposite the main church. The food is mainly cooked by Mama in the traditional Greek way and is really good. Stelios is a fine attentive waiter and you will always be offered a little digestif at the end of your meal. The main problem though is that there are... More
