The Medusa quickly became our favourite eaterie while staying next door at the Island Hotel in Kato Gouves. Impeccably clean and pleasingly airy, even on the hottest Cretan afternoon, the high quality of the food made this a must-visit destination for us (Antonio's chips being a particular favourite.) Highly recommended.

We visited Medusas whilst staying at the Island hotel, since it is right outside you can't not go! So glad we did, food is super delicious, the staff are super friendly and it is so reasonably priced! Also nice to go to late in the evening for a drink or two as they are so reasonable compared to the hotel... More

Excellent host, very friendly. Lovely atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for the staff and will cater to your needs. Great for snacks, meals, or even just for a drink. We have been here plenty of times and will certainly return. Well done MEDUSA.

Visited Medusa on my recent stay in Gouves. Spotted friends in Medusa as we were walking by. Stopped to say hello then decided to join them. I had the Lamb Kleftico and my wife had the Sole. Both meals were excellent. The house Red wine was delicious, the best we had in Crete. Well worth a visit.

We visited the Medusa restaurant after reading many of the good reviews below, particularly the one saying the restaurant had the best calamari ever. I concur with comments about the staff - they're very friendly, attentive and helpful. However, the food was a disappointment. I had the calamari which was pretty tasteless and the batter was very soggy. The chips... More

Tasty food. Specialised in seafood with pasta and Cretan options. Good cheap wine on carafe. Friendly service.

We hadn't been to Crete for a Number of years because we struggled to find somewhere as lovely as our beautiful, regular destination of Athena Apartments in Kalives near Chania since it's owner Manolis' passing. We finally bit the bullet this year and staying at the Island Hotel near Gouves in East Crete near Heraklion has been a pleasant return... More

First night. Nice food but nothing special. Didn't feel the need to go back but nothing wrong with it.
