“Babis and Popi: great atmosphere and excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This Taverna is very popular and rightly so. The food is excellent Cretan fare and locally sourced. There is a lovely family atmosphere, with a cool outside eating area beneath grape vines. The staff are attentive and courteous. What's not to like?

“Lovely friendly place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had evening meals here on two separate occasions and was very pleased with the welcome, the service and the food (on Crete). It was generally at least more than half full on both occasions and we were very happy with the value for money. There was an unpaved car park opposite with a bit of a ramp getting in, but no problem if you drive slowly.
We would recommend this resto as an alternative to those in the port of Chora Sfakia who all try to kidnap you as you go past!

“good food, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Always busy, with a large percentage of Germans largely due to one of the owners being German. Food very reasonable and good quality plus daily specials
