The place might look deserted as you go past but venture in and you will be welcomed to the seating area out the back. Managed to go twice in the time we were there. Beautiful tasty food. The meat pie for two is divine.

The food was good home cooking and according to the oldest daughter they want to cook for us as they would for themselves. Worked for me, I had goubetsi (beef and pasta), my wife had the beef stefado both where great.... More

I used the restaurant as I was staying at the hotel. The owners cook and the children wait on- and how well they all do it too! The tables overlook the beautifully lit pool and are not easily seen from the road- so don't be afraid to wander in. My favourite dish was stifado and it was by far the... More

We tried a number of restaurants in Maleme which were all good but the food in the Albatros was outstanding and definitely our favourite. Home cooked by Mama using fresh local organic produce,the local Greek dishes are superb! I cannot recommend one dish over another as they were all so good and great value for money. Try and enjoy

The food at the Albatross restaurant is, for the most part, traditional Greek, cooked with loving care by the family who run the restaurant. We have never had a bad meal there and the Moussaka is the best we have eaten anywhere! The staff are incredibly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. There is a family atmosphere there, and...

Huge portions and very well presented food. Excellent value for money and significantly cheaper than restaurants closer to the sea although only a 5 min walk from the main area. A little disappointing in terms of atmosphere and view not great. Very friendly and prompt service.

We had stayed at Albatross hotel and had a dinnet couple of times. It's a family hotel, so all the stuff is family members and meals are made by mother :) So meals was very tasty, stuff wonderfull. We were happy to taste real meals of Crete. I really recomend it, one of the best places to eat.

We passed a couple of times and like other reviews thought the place looked very quiet. Having read reviews on here ventured in, really impressed with the food and very friendly, knowledgeable waitress (Dora) the daughter of the chef. Food was really tasty, large portions, sadly we visited at the end of our holiday or we would have returned.

We passed this restaurant several times, we didn't see anyone in there so thought it may not be very good. We finally tried it to find that there were tables that couldn't be seen from the road and they had customers. The food was good, the service was attentive and friendly so we ate there again the next night, which... More
