My mother's family lives on the island of Crete and like so many other Greek americans we journey back to see our family at least once a year. During our trip this year, we celebrated my niece's birthday at Kreta Taverna on the recommendation of my uncle as my niece wanted traditional Cretan food for her birthday (she turned 14).... More

We don't go on holiday to eat British food or watch British television so were looking for an authentic local restaurant near our hotel in Malia and our holiday rep recommended The Kreta Taverna. It is an unassuming building at the side of the main road but when you walk inside the transformation is amazing. It is beautifully laid out... More

Great food. Family run restaurant. Authentic and natural design. Away from the Malia strip so you get a calm and friendly atmosphere. Great banter and rapport with the manager.

Didn't eat here but the prices were expensive and no-one was at the restaurant which turned us off. It's traditionally designed but it looks very old school, it's a family run resturant

We have been visiting Crete now for the past 8 years and this restaurant is one of our favorites. George the owner is always welcoming and the food is spectacular. My advice is tell George what type of food you like and let him order for you.

This lovely little Taverna, just far enough away from the main strip of Malia to escape the business if you need to, is a lovely place to eat. With an olive tree in the middle of the outside courtyard, you can enjoy a great selection of Greek specialties. George (the owner) is so welcoming and made our experience very enjoyable... More
