Saturday Greek night with live Greek music and dancing. Great atmosphere and friendly family run Taverner, Good priced drinks and menu with lots of choice. Free peach snapps or Raki when you pay the bill as a night cap with either George or one of his staff.

George's Taverna will ensure you are left with the most amazing holiday memories! George, Nicos and Effie offer the best Greek welcome you could wish for. Great food, good wholesome Greek cuisine at very reasonable prices, Stifado particularly good! A wide range of drinks at half the price of the local hotels. DO NOT miss Greek night on Saturdays at...

We visited the George Taverna twice during our stay in Crete. Both times for lunch and both times we were very pleased. I can't comment on the evening service. The host was very friendly and served us promptly. We ordered baguettes/sandwiches both times which were tasty and came with chips. It's also good value - two baguettes with a soft... More
