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.

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

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 stumbled across the beautiful taverna whilst on our honeymoon. Ended up going a few times, food was home cooked and delicious, fish especially. Owner was very friendly and looked after us well! Would definetely go back next time.
