“Reserved judgement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had been told this was "the best restaurant in Agia Marina" but we must have caught them on a bad night! We were shown to our table without any pleasantries and when the waitress brought the plates, she slammed them down without so much as a smile. The food was ok - nothing special. Give it a try but keep an open mind.....

Firstly Thank you for visiting the tavern. Was a bad night for us because the third, waiters were plowing and there was not enough work time required for something better for you to believe you understand. Thanks

“you have to go there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Away from the loudness and movement of the tourism on the beach you will find this old traditional taverna.
They serve really good food and if there is something you will not find on the card- you can ask for it for another day.
They have a good housewine-red or white- and the prices of food and drinks are good, too.
You will feel like you are in your favorite restaurant at home where they know you for years...

“The best restaurant in crete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is without doubt the best restaurant in Agia Marina. I have eaten almost everywhere in the village, and Manolis has both the best food and the best athmosphere! The people who is working here are so warm and generous, and is always making sure that you are having a good time. The food is amazing, especially the authentic cretan dishes. If you eat at Manolis you are guaranteed a great evening in a relaxing and beautiful environment. Pia Edvardsen from Norway

“Super family taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Super family run taverna, sits at the top of the old town. The food is traditional greek with many meat,fish and vegetarian dishes, I opted for grilled fish whilst my wife had chicken, both were delicious, our bulgarian waitress was very friendly and the son of manilos was very attentive and friendly. all in all a great little taverna.....

“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

nice setting and food was tasty. Not ideal for young kids as there are no built in play parks! However couples and older families will enjoy it.
