If you want authentic and delicious Greek and Cretan food rather than the mass produced, expensive and comparatively tasteless stuff served in the waterfront establishments then you won't find better than Taverna Steki. What's more, the situation and the atmosphere are lovely and the waiters look after you once you're seated. It's centrally placed too, not far from the old... More

We found this little restaurant and liked the setting in a ruined building with vines growing over the wooden rafters. So you feel nice and shaded but still outside. They served homely Greek food. There was a good selection of appetisers and We had slow roasted goat and lamb which were both delicious. Great selection of wine, and the house... More

Just off the harbor in a neat alley, steki was a great change from the restaurants on the water at a good price. I had the grilled feta cheese starter then one of the traditional dishes. Both were great and they brought out complimentary dessert with of course roki. The staff was not pushy ( another nice difference) and portions... More

Good menu range including traditional Cretan dishes.Garlic bread and mixed 'hot' starters great to begin with. The Chicken fillet Methismena proved very popular and we did try the mixed Greek plate for two. Make... More

Avoid the restaurants int he harbor if you want real Cretan food and come here -- friendly, and great, service, excellent food, and a gorgeous old Venetian building to house it all in.

This taverna is tucked away down a leafy side street away from the touristy harbour area, and opposite a fun-looking little bar called The Black Rooster. The food was fine but generally was cooked without love - soggy Boureki, mounds of tasteless spaghetti carbonara, reasonable meatballs. As ever, the servings were huge. The staff were a bit joyless to be... More
