The title says it all. Phillipos is the best restaurant in Gouves. We only stopped here for a coffee as we were passing early one afternoon. We were served by the friendly gentleman whom I presumed to be the owner. He asked if he could serve us a

I can't say enough words other than this little taverna and its host are one of the loveliest parts of our stay when Karen and myself come to Gouves on regular visits. We count ourselves very lucky to have met such a lovely fellow that goes out of his way to bring the best, authentic Greek dining experience ever. Can't... More

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.
