Want traditional? Come to Costas

We found Costa's Restaurant by chance, we randomly turned off the the main road hoping to find something special. We stumbled across a man (full name Constantine I believe) waving us down, barbecuing in the road, lamb chops as big as you head. We had already ate a few hours earlier, but felt rude... read more

Our second to visit to Maza and of course it would not be complete without multiple visits to Costas & Voulas Taverna. This is a real family run affair in the heart of Crete run by a family who want nothing more than to please their guests. This time we gave Costas some notice and asked for some fresh fish... More

Back to Maza for the third year and back to the Kafenikon for a warm welcome and hearty, beautifully cooked food. Kostas is several times larger than life, Voula a gifted cook - no menu and it helps to give warning you are coming earlier in the day. You sit outside on the village square, next to the little church,... More

We loved Costos' caferion. Costos will cook you anything you would like and will show you the amazing church wonderful frescoes from the 14th century next door with to his Caferion. He is a wonderful host and we found the Caferion very relaxing and lots of fun with our two kids.

Our second visit to Maza. What a welcome we got. Kostas and Voula remembered us from last year and made a tremendous fuss of us. The food is as good as ever, highlights being Voula's moussaka and pork chops from the grill. Ask Kostas in advance to get some fish. This really is an experience. The road up to the... More

We have become regular holidaymakers to Crete and Costi's taverna is one of the big reasons we will continue to return. Costi and Voula provide the perfect harmony of excellent company and excellent food, wonderful traditional Greek food prepared expertly by Voula or barbequed by Costi himself. It is great fun to just arrive and see what glorious food is... More

Kostas and Voula's caferion's hospitality and rustic food was wonderful as always. We have spent every other evening of our 21 day holiday eating with Kostas and his family. Their welcome is second to none, their food is authentic rustic greek cuisine. Many local people also chose to eat with Kostas which shows just how good his company, food, wine... More

Kostas and Voula certainly know how to entertain. The food, especially the beef stifado, is spectacular but it's best to go or phone in advance if you want something particular as there is no menu. If you just turn up, though, you won't be disappointed. Huge pork chops on the bbq, pastitsio, lamb, chicken, fish (if ordered in advance),lots of... More
