I have now visited Dragons Cave twice with family who stay locally. This is an amazing taverna to visit. Sofia and her family cook the most amazing food with love and passion. Both the hosting and food are top class. Locally sourced ingredients and fresh produce from the family garden. You must try the tomato balls and the courgette balls.... More

The quality of the food at this taverna was excellent. It was very fresh - almost all ingredients come from the owners' farm! The service is friendly and the value is great. A must if you're in the area!

When we arrived the place was quiet for a lunch time. the order was made after quite a wait but this was due to the delicious bread being baked and ready for us. A pity the rest of the order was average and we still had to wait for ages.The very friendly waiter seemed quite distracted and not on the... More

We were taken care of, more like a guest than customer. All dishes was genuine and homemade. That includes the wine and olive oil. Taxi from Sunwing resort was 10€. I love to come back and strongly recommend everyone to go there.

Lovely food, service, atmosphere and views. Good idea to have a car to get here. We went because of the tripadvisor reviews and they were correct.

Not a lot of people know that nearly all the food is grown/caught by the owner making everything fresh and organic. The food is delicious and this place has a small playground

This is the best place we have eaten in crete and one of the best we have visited in many trips to crete. Food is seasoned well and cooked well. Other reviewers comment re service probably was a busy night and then they are hard pushed with 2 people to keep up the service. We have visited many times and... More

The setting of this taverna really can't be beaten and high enough to give a welcome breeze in the heat. We were made to feel welcome and they were so friendly and warm, nothing was too much trouble. The food was lovely, the fish brought out and shown to us before it was cooked & smaller portions accomadated for the... More
