I spent a very nice afternoon on Falasarna small beach (superb water!!), just under Galasia Thea. I was very curious to try the 'famous' Dakos, so on the way back to my hotel (always on foot, since I'm travelling in Crete alone and by bus) I stopped and asked for Dakos and a small beer. Actually Dakos were really good... More

We were here with friends the last day in Falassarna. Nice view on the sunset, the beach, open garden and play ground for the kids, together with very good food. Not to miss

A lovely restaurant with a great view over the whole of Falasarna. Service was a little slow to start with but food was good with healthy sized servings. The Greek salad had a huge slab of Feta on it, just as we loke it! House white wine was not good at all so better to go for a bottle, as... More

I have been visiting this friendly restaurant over the past 4 years. Their number one advantage is their location.Having an uninterrupted view to the whole Falasarna beach, gives a vantage point for the best sunset! Being away from all lights, will allow you to enjoy amazing starlit skies at night...Having a playground and several bunnies and young sweet cats running... More

We were there twice for lunch. We tried the pasticio, dakos, greek salad, chicken burger: everything was well cooked and with ENORMOUS portions. We had to ask for a "doggy bag" and with that we ate an additional lunch the day after! Friendly service and low prices: three main courses and 3 soft drinks for less than 20 euros.

We went here several times and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and great staff/service of this cafe. Just above the right side of Falassarna beach, this place serves up fantastic Greek food as well as coffees and lighter fare if you're not up for a big meal. Definitely great value and we'd go back in a heartbeat!

Galasia Thea offers good greek cuisine and spectacular, unbelievable sunsets. Mousaka, pastitsio, stuffed tomatoes, Cretan kaltsounia, and calamari are very very good. For those without cell phones on vacation, 2 computers are available with internet on site.
