You need car to get there from Plakias but dinner and sunset are worth going there! Very delicious regional dishes, a bit cheaper than in Plakias, very busy in the evenings, with live Greek music in some days. Small parking avaliable.

Definitely worth visiting - all the food for dinner was local, traditional, fresh and fantastically delicious and the views are exceptional. Very friendly service. They do a fabulous breakfast as well - a perfect way to start the day! Would definitely dine here again if back in the area.

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 10 years and it has never disappointed. Excellent service and wonderful local food. They use local herbs to achieve amazing flavours. I am veggie and have a great choice at Panorama: last night's risotto was just amazing, best ever! Every night there is something different and innovative on offer. It's also excellent... More

The taverna has a superb view over the bay and even on a cloudy evening the setting and the sunset were beautiful. We were given a warm welcome and even on a Sunday evening, early in the tourist season, the restaurant was pretty full with people coming in to eat at intervals all evening. There was so much to choose... More

Decided to start branching out a little bit from my usual - souvlaki, deep-fried calamari, Greek salad, bream, bass, swordfish etc. All of which, with a few chips and some salad, I think of as beIng excellent for a hot country. But Greece of course - like Spain -has food you might associate with more Northern countries, such as stews... More

We, Anneke & Joop, visited this taverna many years and many times. And the last time, was May 2015. Yiorgos and his staff knows what people like. Through the years he changed the kitchen-staff and the tastes are better then ever before... All new tasted mixed salades, and the meat is well done. Many choices on the menu. Every Friday... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Mirthios/Myrthios and ate 3 times at Taverna Panorama. Excellent choice of Cretan cuisine at a very reasonable price, with friendly and rapid service. We had a whole range of different dishes, all of which were very enjoyable. The highlight was probably the sardines on our last night - the best since our... More
