Beautiful traditional family run taverna in the centre of the village. Food is to die for. Mouthwatering, plentiful and very high quality, lovingly cooked by the owners's wife, Maria, and would stand up against any high class restaurant. Great wine too, served in lovely copper pots that keep it cold. The service is friendly, efficient, welcoming and second to none.... More

Often busy especially during the height of Season. A warm welcome is guaranteed. I have always found the portions large, for my wife too large. Service usually efficient but end of season can be a bit slow at the end of day.

Although it was the end of the season we were still disappointed that they were unable to provide us with quite a few of the items we wanted from the menu, so had to settle for second best. I was shocked that they didn't even have houmous! The food we ordered arrived quickly but was of average quality. For example,... More

Another gorgeous Old Town restaurant with an extensive menu (all dishes half size / half price for kids), we ate like kings here for a very reasonable price. The owner Spiros is a charming fella, he has run it for nearly 20 years. Well worth a visit and have a wander round the old part of town while you're up... More

Visited this restaurant again on two occasions. Managed to get a table outside overlooking the street. Nice place to eat on a warm evening. The food was superb as usual. The staff friendly and welcoming. Would not hesitate to recommend this place in Old Malia Town. Will be back again in the future.
