Great food and service

We look for a good place to eat and find Mariou Taverna. Great location, nice sea and mountain view! I loved the lamb and the cheese pie! Very Delicious!

Beautiful view, very friendly staff and great food. Plenty of place to park and friendly animals to put a grin on anyone's face. Great night would highly recommend it.

We had quite a few starters and 3 main courses at this place which has a fantastic view over the plakias and damnoni bay. Each dish had a divine taste leaving a great sense of pleasure. Excellent smiling staff.. All people working here seemed to really enjoy what they do. Try to visit just before sunset to enjoy the views... More

Went to this place on a recommendation at our hotel and the view was amazing. Go early or make a reservation to ensure you get a good seat. Apps and salad are amazing, entrees were good not great. Wife had beef and I had meatballs which were a special. Not impressed with my meal but the wife's was very good.... More

Traditional taverna in a small village. Fast and friendly service, probably, the best I´ve seen in Crete. Good home wine. Big portions, but not huge, nicely served.

Everything was amazing, the location the stuff, the food!! Unique flavors, everything we tried was at least great! The stuff friendly and they knew their game. At the end we tried their chocolate cake, which has to be one of the best in Greece!! Try everything ask them about their daily special and trust them! Probably on top 3 taverns... More

It was a great experience eating at Mariou's Taverna. You should definitely try "Strapatsada with syglino", "Feta in crust with honey" and the cretan salad. The service offered was warm and very effective. 10/10
