Faros is a great place for tasty Greek food. Make sure to try horta, the wild Cretan green. However, I would go early to avoid the long wait when the crowds are there. After the meal, there is complimentary raki, fruit, and a great dessert.

Delicious Greek food and good choice of fish. Locals do recommend. But location at tripadvisor is indicated wrong. It is right by the beach.

I have to say it's nice to go to a peacefully restaurant and not get hassled every five minutes by the staff,they were so pleasant did not try and force you to have something else..the seafood was so fresh,situated next to a calm beach.all I can say is we will definitely be back.

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
