After our visit to the beach we found this restaurant. It's not very close but it's worth it. Great food, great service, amazing place to sit and enjoy the food. Would go again for sure!

This place is situated in the midddle of nowhere. But inside you will find the most beautiful garden ever. Food is nice and proper done. A small playground for the kids is always appreciated. Credit cards ok. Raki included-if you dare....

We went to this restaurant mainly because it was mentioned from colleague where her origin is from that area, and also because it was listed as the best in TripAdvisor. And you know what... it's worth being the best in the area! We ordered a variety of local dishes and they where all excellent (as a matter of fact we... More

We had pleasant staying and good "grigliata" (mixed grilled meat), nice dolmades and anthoi and we ended with sweet baklavas. People very kind and environment very warm.

Stayed nearby at the Petritos Hotel and Vassilis Taverna was by far the best place we ate in Falassarna. Excellent good, welcoming atmosphere and an all together lovely experience. Highly recommend

Definitely the best place to eat in the region. Helpful and kind staff, nice setting and especially great food and house wine. All the Greek classic are worth mentioning as all was superb, but in my opinion gold medal goes to the rabbit stew kindly suggested by the staff. I have rarely had enjoyed so much a dish!! Vassilis is... More

We went for an early dinner. It was relaxing. There's a nice view and garden. Staff was friendly. We ordered greek salad, fried calamari and lamb chops. Calamari and salad were very good, lamb chops was average. Prices are reasonable. Small pieces of watermelon and sugarmelon and raki were offered from the house.
