The Best Stifado In The Village

The owner of this restaurant will tell you that tonight's specials are cheese pies and stifado. I've been eating here since 2003, and specials have never been any different. Having said that, the stifado in particular is excellent, and our guests have always been happy to come back. It is... read more

This was our favourite taverna when we came to Almyrida several years ago. When we returned this year we were welcomed like old friends, so genuine. It is in a lovely setting, and a real family run business. The food is absolutely delicious, and such good value.we went back several times and were never disappointed. We can't wait to return...

Lagos Taverna is a delightful place to eat in Almyrida. Set just off the road at the entrance to the village and tucked away in a beautifully designed garden setting, it's a lovely contrast to the tavernas on the seafront. The food is very good, particularly the beef stifado, and the cheese pies, made by the owner's mother - the... More

This was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the sea front eateries. The family were clearly proud of their restaurant and it was lovely to be welcomed to their home. The owner was enthusiastic about specials and keen to tell us that his mother had prepared the mains and his wife the cakes. We had 2 meals... More

This is a nice and cosy restaurant, with good service, genuine food and very good prices. During our stay in Almyrida (Crete) we had dinner there at least fiive times and we were always satisfied, especially our two children 9 and 4 years old.

We went there following our hosts recommendation. It is a really cosy place with home atmosphere. Food was great and filling. We had moussaka adn stuffed green peppers to share and I must admit that was enough for two of us. Don't forget to get Yourself some digestive, as this was a heavy meal.

Lovely setting, fresh and traditional food. Beef Stifado a specialty but veggie options too. Great alternative to the more touristy tavernas

After eating in other Tavernas this one I find was just average. Went here after TA reviews but was disappointed. I had the rabbit stew that was ok and the others had beef stiffado. Service was ok. Lovely setting. Would maybe return.

Beautiful eating area and delicious food but a limited menu. we went on recommendation and re visited hoping to get some thing 'different' on the specials menu but it was cheese pies each time which we were a little disappointed at. However we really liked the staff and the children loved the restaurant as it wasn't as 'packed' as some... More

Visited here after TA recommendations. Was disappointed. Just average food and have ate at better tavernas. Would suggest you go and make your own mind up.
