The food was okay but it felt like a great big eating hall with dozens of tables. Portions very generous though.

We visited this tavern for our very first cretian meal. I ordered snails with vegetables, my husband had moussaka, and it was fine. The waiter who served us was helpful and caring. The tavern has amazing sea view (like most taverns situated on the promenade in Kissamos).

Very touristy - one of the biggest on the seafront and the food is very average (as is the carafe wine!). Nice situation though and friendly.

Stelios Mylonakis and all at the Cellar provide great food and an incredibly warm welcome. My wife and I have just completed a walking week organised by Strata Tours where we have eaten most evenings in the Cellar Tavern. Every evening we had something new and exciting and Stelios was always there to welcome us and introduce the food. This... More

We ordered mixed grill fish and it was not well cooked the octopus was very hard you couldn't even cut it let alone eat it. And everything was tasteless. The waiters were disrespectful and we had ordered a second bottle of wine and they never did bring it and they charged it
