Had read all the reviews and were looking forward to a good meal at Ta Kochilia, unfortunately they did not deliver: my wife had an awful, sweet, slimy cuttlefish stifado (with very little actual cuttlefish!) and I had tough-as-old-boots "octopus in a red wine sauce" served...without any sauce whatsoever, dry, chewy, probably the worst meal we have ever had in...

We left 10 minutes ago with family and liked it very much. Only problem is that they bring too much, so order carefully

Ate there with friend as family. The location is amazing, on the beach front with view across to St. Nicolas island. The good is simply top Greek cuisine, we ate sea food mostly (shrimp, calamari, salads, octopus, etc). Also the people are very friendly and the prices are fair. Definite recommendation!!

Good food and very pleasant owner and waitress. The small fresh squid was excellent but only available on one night we were there.

Romantic and scenic location - one of those places where you can just sit and look out at the sea and Mochlos island all day long. Food and service are excellent too. A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. One of our favourite places in Mochlos.

Having visited Crete many times and looking for somewhere more authentic rather than touristy we found yourself at this wonderful village with two nice taverna's by the side of the water overlooking the Island of Mochlos with its ruined minoan city. we opted for the Ta Kochilia as the menu looked more authentic and wonderful views over to the island,...
