Spyros Taverna was recommended to us by a few of our friends a few years ago, we were not disappointed we have been many times now, we think we must have tried all his menu and can honestly say that the food and service is excellent. The minute you enter his taverna you are made extremely welcome by Spyros, it... More

Spyros, the master of Cretan hospitality with food to match a very warm welcoming place set high up in the old village on the way to the largest cave in Crete. [A must see attraction] Raki flows freely not just your usual one shot see you later place. Spyros has his heart and soul in this place and deserves a... More

These are 'real' Greek people here, they aren't British, so don't be shocked! Spyros (the person) is very friendly, warm, wonderful and definitely larger than life! The food is GREAT! If you want a Greek taverna experience... this is the place to be.

I visited Spyros Taverna with my wife in August, 2003. It was 11:30 p.m.(!) as we went to Gouves in search of somewhere to eat. We encountered Spyros taverna in the midnight and were offered a great variety of quality Greek foods and drinks. I asked the Dutch friend of Spyros what would be if we stay in this taverna... More

After reading reviews decided to give it a go. Had a really good night and the food was amazing!!!! The lamb kleftiko melted and the meat on the mixed grill was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was good and what capped it of was the little Greek girl dancing. Food was so good we will be going back. My daughter... More

We stayed in Crete for a week and ate here twice. Each time was as perfect and as crazy as the last. Spyros is very welcoming and entertaining. Maria was a lovely lady (thanks for picking us up and dropping us off) and the food is out of this world. This is one restuarant that everyone needs to experience. I... More

Spyros was very quiet on this Thursday evening. The background music was great and our host made us feel like family, We enjoyed the traditional Greek food and drinks, and also baklava with chocolate ice cream, and raki and fruit. This is a charming place!
