We ate here several times over our week in Crete as the food at our all-inclusive hotel was inedible. We were made to feel welcome, the food and service was excellent, great wine and super raki! I'd recommend this place to every visitor to Gouves.

Myself and my wife had a few meals there in September/October 2014. The food was freshly prepares. Philipo was on hand to cater for our needs and was very helpful. We were given a very nice plate of fruit after our meal + raki. On one windy night we were driven to our hotel....Hard to beat that. Padraig Flanagan, Ireland.

Nice little taverna slightly off the coast. Good food, raki after a meal, friendly service albeit a little slow even when the restaurant was quiet.

My husband particularly wanted to re visit Kato Gouves just to go here for lunch, we were not staying at this resort and had to get on the local bus to get here. Phillipo was as lovely as before, with many English locals in his bar. The food was excellent, the best Chips we'd had all week and his Tuna... More

Great food and very friendly. Enjoyed the Calamari, twice. Free Raki after the meal with water melon. Interesting discussion with Philippo about the harvesting of the olives.

We saw this restaurant recommended so gave it a go. Phillipos is lovely, he couldn't do enough for you. The meal was lovely, and then we were offered Raki or Ouzo, and then a big plate of fruit was brought through too. The prices were very good too, well worth the food. He made you feel very welcome. Would definitely... More
