Family restaurant serving wide variety of dishes from Greece and aboard. Grilled meat and fish are mouthwatering. Pastas and chicken are also made with best greek tradition and obviously with love for food and cooking. Location is excellent - by the sea, but not close to any busy street. As family, we highly recommend.

I rarely rate restaurants here, as in our experience they can vary widely from one visit to the next, especially in tourist areas. However, there are always exceptions and this is one. Choose your own fish and let them work their magic on the charcoal grill, with baked potatoes on the grill thrown in and a nice fresh salad -... More

Restaurant was recommended to us but the experience was disappointing. The service was impersonal. Although two of the four of us had an excellent meal, the third felt his choice was fairly dry, perhaps overcooked. My meal was forgotten, arrived long after the others and was overcooked. They started packing away while we were still there which was very early... More

If you are looking for some GOOD Greek food, which is reasonably priced, with a beautiful view of the ocean, then Faros restaurant is the place to go. The fish is fresh caught that day. Your meat or fish is grilled right in front of you. The owners Harris & Maria as well as the other staff are very friendly.... More

Faros is a family run beach side restaurant. There are many restaurants around but I guess after we had our lunch there, we felt that it must be the best place to have food around and voila! When I checked Tripadvisor, it rated it No. 1. No doubt. We got fresh fish, barbecued and also had octopus, grilled on fire.... More

Faros is located near a small beach. There is indoor seating inside the restaurant and across the road on the beach is a covered area for dining. I had a traditional greek gyros and my husband had grilled chicken cooked over coals. The service is good and prices are very reasonable.

Was recommended to go here by a local shop keeper. He says he eats there. While not exceptional by any means, I liked the older man ( presumably the owner) tending a flaming BBQ with fish and souvlaki a cooking away. I had chicken and my wife pork. Tasty enough. A nice touch was receiving a BBQ'd potato in its... More

A wonderful find! Lured in by the smell of the wonderful barbecue We were greeted by such friendly staff. We had octopus for starter, followed by prawns and swordfish cooked on the barbecue, excellent choices. This restaurant has a wonderful view across the bay. We visited the restaurant for a second time and had steaks, this also did not disappoint,... More

We chose this restaurant for our daughter's family 9th birthday because it had an extensive menu and its location was right on the beach which meant we could watch the children play while we had pre-dinner drinks. What could have been a great night was totally spoiled by terrible service. The food was quite good especially the calamari & BBQ... More

Having read a number of positive reviews, we decided to try his place. What a mistake that was. Compared to other restaurants on Crete and in Greece, in general, the food was of rather poor quality (bland, tough souvlaki), wilted vegetables in the horiatiki salad, stale bread. The service was excruciatingly slow, there was a lot of yelling and scamming... More
