Good Value and welcoming

We headed in here one afternoon after reading the reviews before we came away on holiday (staying at the excellent Mikes Hotel and apartments). As others have said don't be put off if it's quiet, we saw no-one else inside, once out the back in the fresh air there was one other couple. However... read more

Food is well presented but lacks seasoning, it barley taste anything. Verry friendly staff though. However the hotell is not nice at all. Beds are verry uncomfortable and its noisy as hell. The staff keeps their dog in the basement that barks all night long. Not much of a sleep. And at night you can hear some wierd heavy bouncy... More

Lovely home cooked food and excellent value. The house white is superb and the cretan pie (with courgettes and cheese) is to die for. We went 5 times in a fortnight.

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 first night we walked past and should have stopped. A great welcome from the whole family greeted us. 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...
