Exceptional food and service at unbelievable prices. The restaurant is difficult to find but don't give up until you find the little busy terrace tucked away behind a beautiful church. The Cretan food is outstanding, the fried cheese with honey and sesame must be relished without guilt and it is the little things they do that truly enhance the experience.... More

One of my favorite restaurants on my travels through Greece. Amazing food and service and great prices too. We were staying in fira for 4 nights and went to this restaurant twice in our stay. You must book and ask for a table with a view. Amazing menu and food.

IMO random place to have a restaurant but rated number one for a reason. The hospitality was fantastic. Served us free raki with olives and cheese when you first sit down. The raki was quite strong but I still had it... LIKE A BOSS. GF was feeling a bit weak that day so I drank her share. Ordered a rocket... More

Delicious food, wonderful service, and a gorgeous view. Make reservations! They gave us lots of free treats, such as olives, dessert, and liquor. The food was home cooked and simple yet wonderful.

This restaurant was such a treat from beginning to end. This was our favorite restaurant in Greece! The grilled octopus was out of this world delicious. I wish we could have eaten here for every meal.

Brilliant food and view. Try the feta with honey and the Cretian greens with lemon juice! Once the sun goes down you dine by candle light.

Metaxi Max is not already a taverna, but not yet a restaurant. The space is very small and if looking for a dinner time it is better to book a table in advance. Food is exceptional: local fresh ingredients, perfect cooking. Be ready to the small bottle of Ouzo at the beginning and a glass of Vincanto and a free... More

Weather here's couple of times and the food was just amazing. The friends we travelled with are all Foodies and had been recommended by a Greek living in Melbourne. Go early visit the Church watch the sunset and have a great dinner

If you want to get out of Fira and Oia and enjoy a wonderful view and a little quiet - go to Metaxi Mas! The view is wonderful and there food is home cooked! It is greek at its finest and does not feel like a tourist place. The owner- family is local and everything is made to order. Make... More
