Eve Taverna is great place to sit back and relax and enjoy your meal away from the hustle of the Malia booze strip. The meal was great and if I were honest I have had much better meals elsewhere in the Malia area of the old town. But for what we paid it was ok, even thou the staff were... More

We were greeted by Johnnas ( spelling wrong ) the owner and were treated like family. We ate there twice and loved the place. Everything was done by the owner and was done to perfection. Great place to eat !!!!

We went twice to Eva Taverna, the first time we loved it so we had to come back but then we were a little disappointed. The owner is very nice and friendly but the service is not always good. The food is really wonderful, real family cooking. Nice terrace.
