Beautiful food, wonderful staff..

A group of six of us went to Petrino Garden for our last night, it was packed out and we had to wait a short while, but it has a nice bar area so that was no issue. The owner of this restaurant is such a nice lady, and she really goes out of her way to make your visit... read more

Having honeymooned on the lovely island of Crete, we found this gorgeous restaurant in the Old Town area of Malia. The food itself was amazing, in particular the Farfale Pasta with Salmon in Champagne Sauce was my favourite. The hospitality was amazing, Marina is a wonderful hostess, very warm and welcoming. As this was our honeymoon we were treated to... More

This restaurant really has everything. In a beautiful outdoor setting with vines overhead, superb food, mainly Greek but with Italian (including the best pizza in Malia according to my son). Marina is lovely, very pleasant with time for everyone, even when busy. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Every year when we are in Malia, we have to go to Giorgos and Marina! The garden, with the grapes, the view, the lemontree in spring. Always we feel very welcome! It's a small restaurant, but so nice, once been there and you have to go back!! See you next year!!

this restaurant was located behind San Georgio in the old town. My first impression was amazement at the grapevines laden with grapes hanging over the tables. I wanted Lamb Kleftico, but apparently due to the length of cooking time - and as it is quieter during the week, this dish was only available on a Friday night - we didn't... More

This is a lovely little family restaurant and the food is wonderful. The owners are a husband and wife team and they run it completely themselves. Everything is so fresh and it really is s wonderful place.

Got here at 8pm and it was very busy. We got a table and waited around 20 mins as there was only one lady serving. We almost walked out thinking it was going to be really bad however once we were served the food came out in a nice timescale and was fabulous! Well worth the wait! I had tomato... More

We made a return visit to this restaurant after a year and were remembered and welcomed like old friends, we had a wonderful meal with fantastic service and have decided that this is our favourite restaurant in Malia. Can't wait to return!
