Cretan breakfast, great view

My husband and I ate here late morning and had a delicious Cretan breakfast. We sat on the top floor with a lovely view over Matala beach.

Located on the beach. Steps down or up. The menu book is overused, time to change it. I ate stuffed wine leaves which were very good. My wife took grilled sardines which were not tasety. Friendly stuff, good service and good price.

Very helpful and pleasant staff. They have excellent fish and Greek food. Here I eat Cretan snails. My wife looked suspicious, but for me that was great, he, he, he

We were taken to Sirtaki by our friends for dinner and we found the food to be very good as was the service. The staff were very helpful explaining anything we wanted to know about their dishes and the quality of the food was top class. The setting was a bonus, we sat and watched the sun set behind the...

The restaurant had been suggested to us by cretan friends and it was a good suggestion. We had the mixed appetizers for two and the grilled octopus, everything was well prepared and friendly served. Great view on the bay. Good value for money, even in a turistic place like Matala.

Now - don't get me wrong - this lovely little restuarant is open in the evening but the great beach location and stunning views just made it a must for the lunchtime meal. The menu is varied and the food is cooked fresh to order. If you like Zuchinni and the local ''boiled greens' this is the place to have... More

This taverna is a very good one as far as food and friendly relationships are concerned. We ate only there in Crete fried mussels made on purpose the day after our request, the grilled fish we had was great and the appetizers more than good. Moreover the friendly approach of the "taverna maitre" made these dinners ( three times )... More

Very friendly staff and proprietor and really fresh seafood made for a delicious dinner. Guests at the Hotel Neos benefit from a meal deal here but we went a la carte - it was such good value anyway.
