Nice food and service

Great spot overlooking the beach. Decent food and drink at a good price. Was extremely warm in here so were all happy when we got ice cream with the bill..Only downside was the local mozzies were holding a tourist taster evening here as well, we all got at least a couple of munches each..

Visited this restaurant/cafe on numerous occasions on our recent visit to Crete!! Food was great and lots of it! Family run, they were very friendly and service was great! Spent our last evening here and ate like kings!! Lovely spot on the beach front. Definitely worth a visit!! Great value for money!

Lovely place, great view. The problem was most of what we wanted wasn't available and what we did order took ages to arrive, then waitng for the bill also took ages as they were all stood chatting around the till. Very slow. What we did eat was very nice.

What a lovely family business this is. Breakfast every day for us without fail. My all time favourite for me freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit. The rest of my family cooked breakfast which was very big very tasty and price best around.

This was our first visit to Gouves and although we were stopping all inclusive at an hotel up the road we decided to call in at Limanaki for a drink whilst out exploring on our first night. What a fantastic find....! It is a family run business with excellent service and excellent food. Although in Gouves for the week we... More

This is the second year we have had our summer holiday in Kato Gouves and we had our evening meal at Limanaki Cafe for the first time a few days ago. What a pleasant surprise! It turned out to be the best meal we had ever had in the resort. The cafe faces onto the sea and is very well... More

Our second holiday in Gouves and again we found ourselves eating at Limanaki nearly every day. Just across the road from our favourite beach. The food is very good value for money - well cooked and big portions. Most people who eat there once seem to become returning customers. The family running it are doing a great job!

Wasn't sure when we passed as there weren't many people in but glad we did. What an excellent place. It's very clean, the owner took great care of his customers, nothing was too much trouble, you never felt rushed at all, but most of all the food was delicious. We ate there for breakfast, brunch and dinner over the week,... More
