Amazing tomatoes and feta cheese...great appetizers and mains... You can tell the food is made with passion... Try the calamari, mousacha, meatball, tzatziki, fish, lamb, Aubergine, courgette balls, etc. we missed 3 days to try everything from the menu.... What a shame. Ask the owner how you can taste tomatoes, what's the best feta cheese....

A great place to eat if you are looking for a quintessential Greek taverna experience. Food is tasty, authentic and reasonably priced. Good departure from the food on the main strip. The service is typically Greek and the owner will happily down a shot of rakia with you!

When we walked in there were plenty of empty tables but we were given a funny look as though to say 'don't know if we can fit you in'. Long wait to place order, clear table and get bill. Only one person dealing with customers so no interaction. Food was good but service poor

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
