The guy on the front persuaded us to come here after talking to us each night. The service inside the restaurant was very different. What seemed to be the owner was very rude, abrupt and only made an effort with those who seemed to know. The food was lovely but we were not happy with the service and, therefore, did... More

We ate here twice during our holiday and would happily recommend. From the warm welcome from all staff, personal advice about dishes to wonderful food and the waiters bad jokes (lol) we enjoyed every moment we spent here. Many thanks Martha and your staff.

This is always our first meal when we return to Stalis. It is our favourite and we love Martha to bits. Nothing is too much trouble and we always try to eat here several times during our holiday. I was so sorry that I could not enjoy my food properly as I had dental problems but even the soup was... More

Great food, excellent sea view whilst eating, very friendly owner (Martha) and her staff. Lots of returning 'eaters' - usually a good sign and it was.

We arrived in Crete about a fortnight before the tourist season began, during the Easter holidays. Much of Stalis was gearing up for the summer tourists, but not yet open. We discovered Restaurant Creta 'Right By The Sea' was open and we decided to give it a go. It was really quiet, not surprising for the time of year but... More

The food is fantastic, and then there's Martha! You don't need to eat, just listen to her! Great location by the sea, more than once we decided to order more drinks and stick around. They are very aware of gluten-free food too, which is great, although most Greek food is gluten-free naturally.

Fabulous food, service can be a little slow at busy times but the food is worth waiting for. The cheese and spinach pies and shrimp saganaki are amazing. Keep up the fantastic work Martha, Michaelis and Nikos!
