Prices are rather low. The overall atmosphere in the taverna is somehow disappointing. You are eating next to the sea, but there is nothing keeping you there.

We stayed for 2 weeks in Agia Pelagia this year and every day had meals at Votsalo's. It is an excellent restaurant with fresh fish and all other traditional Greek dishes. The restaurant is run by a family who are more than friendly and it was a pleasure to visit them every day. I strongly recommend this taverna to everybody.

Votsalo is a well located traditional Greek tavern by the sea. All the meals are home-made and it is one of the best places of the area to eat fresh fish and fisheries!

This is the second year we have been to Agia Pelagia and this year we tried Taverna Votsalo located next to the crete dive centre. I was impressed with the overall dining experience, the restaurant appears to be run by a local family. We ordered a greek salad, enough for two people, swordfish steaks and a side dish of chips,...
