We were recommended this restaurant by a couple also staying in The Island Hotel last week. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff in the restaurant. The food was topnotch, offering a wide range of traditional Greek dishes and International options for great value. It is all freshly prepared and we had a delightful meal each time. We... More

We visited Medusa twice in our 1 week stay in Kato Gouves. The restaurant has been given a modern, Greek chic feel which is quite unique for the area but is very welcoming! The team there are very friendly, and always willing to help, even when making a cocktail that isn't on their menu but willing to give it a... More

We stayed at The Island hotel for a week and visited Medusa a couple of times for lunch - it is literally 30 seconds from the front door of the hotel and well worth a visit. For the quality and amount of food you get for your money it is an absolute bargain, and the food is fresh, authentic and... More

Nothing beats fresh, well prepared fish. Sea bream filleted at the table, absolutely fabulous. Lovely wines, great cocktails, attentive, friendly service, all made for a great evening. Nothing too much trouble for the staff - just ask. Will definitely be back - more to try on the menu!

Have seen lots of lovely pictures of the food here. Thought people might like to see what usually happens here! Excellent food, decor has been improved upon from last year(wow) and the welcome is still second to none. New wine range too.... just have to have another glass to test it out. Again. And there's still the rose and white... More

What a lovely little restaurant. The food was among the best we have had in Crete. The stuffed red peppers were something to die for. The service was excellent and the staff were exemplary. We will certainly seek Medusa out again in Crete!

Our favourite restaurant in the resort. We loved the warm welcome, the choice of food and the fact it was all cooked fresh to order. We had great meals every time we visited and loved the fact the whole family was involved in the dining experience.
