Went here Monday night, but found that as is the case with a lot of smaller restaurants, they only take cash. When I explained that the cash machine in town was empty, the owner was quite clear that this was not a problem and made us more than welcome, with the clear message that we could pay when ever was...

We stayed at Almyrida for 3 nights whilst backpacking around Greece and came to Lagos twice, it's that good! Yannis is so friendly, kind, humble, accommodating and genuine. The food is second to none and this is our favourite taverna in all we have tried in Greece over the years, and we've tried many!! Meatballs to start are beautiful as... More

Love this place, best food in Kalyves and Almirida. Do not miss it! Traditional food cooked to perfection by a family who have been there ever since I remember (and I'm 28 and have been to Crete 14 times!) - fab fab fab.

This restaurant is the last restaurant on the left as you leave Almyrida heading towards Kalyves. We were a mixed group of adults and children, with some looking for traditional Cretan food and some being less adventurous. The owner happily explained the menu to us, suggesting how we might share dishes to allow everyone experience Cretan food - his recommended... More

The Lagos taverna is located on the right hand side of the road at the very entrance to Almyrida - so not in the main seafront strip but all the better for it. It has been run for 23 years by the same family and they really know how to cook (we went back twice in a week). The garden... More

We travel extensively around Europe with our Bristol friends,and no we had never been on Greek soil. So we went for it and booked a villa on the North Western Coast of Crete in what turned out to be a wonderful coastal village. Such a lovely place to stay for all age groups. The beach and sea bathing so safe... More

This traditional family restaurant serves delicious meals at good prices. And Litsa's chocolate cake at the end of the meal with the raki is irresistible. Give it a try and have a good experience.

Very nice taverna outside the main strip of Almyrida Beach,yet only 5 minutes walk. Nice friendly staff and a very greek style decor with both undercover and under sky area's. Serves a smaller menu of Traditional greek dishes,much tastier than most of the other restaurants around this area. We ate out every night for the whole 15 days and this... More

Went to Lagos after reading the reviews and weren't disappointed. We were in Almyrida one week and ate here three nights, so that should tell you how much we enjoyed eating here! I only have a tiny gripe, for me the fried aubergine was sliced too thin and had too much batter. But the rest! Lovely tzatsiki, although one night... More

We stumbled upon this taverna just around the corner from the main strip of restaurants, we ate outside and the place had a lovely ambiance. The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent, as was the food. It was typical Greek fayre, and very tasty. Ran out of time but would definitely go again.
