The restaurant decorated beautifully, it seen from the road as a white and blue place, looks very nice! The owners love what they are doing and it appears in everything: in food, in mood and in atmosphere! Even the wifi password gives a flavor of owners lifestyle :) the food was delicious, especially homemade sangria: the receipt is different from... More

My friend has already written a review on this but I loved this restaurant so much that I thought I'll write one too! The host was very energetic and really wanted to get to know us when we arrived. The first thing he didn't wasn't to give use menus but to give us a map of Malia and was telling... More

We actually came across this restaurant by accident (we were actually following signs for the malia port restaurant), but we are very glad we did! We had the mixed meze for starters and some great mains as well. The host was great and even drove us back to our car on the main road. This was the best meal we... More

Food was excellent, nice atmosphere. You felt that you were a valued customer. Staff were good at recommending local dishes which were plenty of all types. Speciality dishes, which included meat, fish, everything you could want in a good Taverna. The Toilets were spotless and very modern and catered for every eventuality, with kids changing, elastoplast, cotton buds.

After finding Eva on trip advisor before we arrived in Malia we found it closed but was to open on Good Friday so made straight for it on our last day. So glad we did. The food was amazing, but because they had only opened for the season there wasn't everything available so we opted for a typical Greek meze.... More

The taverna had been only open 24hours into the season when we arrived. Yanis, our host, was so kind and accommodating. The food is amazing, just wish kleftico had been available, nice surroundings and would definitely recommend. You must try if you enjoy traditional Greek food. Yanis even gave us a lift back to our apart hotel, villa monte.

absoultly the most delicious Greek food I have ever tasted! The Greek salad was magnificent and gave me a great idea when I came home. The owner was such a friendly guy and even went out and bought us one of his wine carifs to take home. One final thing the toilets where the cleanest and best I have ever... More
