Perfect end to our holiday

Beautiful cosy traditional taverna. Spyros was the perfect host and the food was delicious including a veggie option cooked up especially. We enjoyed plenty of wine which was great and did not taste of vinegar!!. Thanks Spyros for a perfect end to a fantastic holiday.

I went to Spyros Taverna last week as I had read such good reviews. This restaurant is well of the beaten track. Our party of three got a taxi, at our own expense, both there and back. The restaurant is very small and cramped, but you will be warmly welcomed by Spyros, a good character. We ordered fish soup, only... More

We were in Crete for our honeymoon and staying in the nearby Amirandes hotel. We wanted 'real, delicious, local Cretian food'. We trusted Spyros to order whatever and it was absolutely delicious!! The lamb baked in wax paper was one of the best dishes I ever had. It was very inexpensive and an overall outstanding experience. We highly recommend it!!

My family came across this wonderful restaurant while returning from a day at the beach and just had to stop. The service and quality were great. The server insisted we stay after our meal for complimentary watermelon and honey dew. The atmosphere was very cool and the music playing was great too. Well worth the visit!! Thanks for a great...
