Located at the back of the main square, this restaurant seemed to be rather quiet mid October. However, after a recommendation from the apartment owner we were staying with, we found that the home-cooked food was of excellent quality with generous portions. Prices are very reasonable too. We are vegetarians and ate here happily three nights in a row. On... More

Nice setting in the square opposite the church. Not the biggest menu but it's good home cooked Cretan food. Very good white house wine at 6euro a litre. Moussaka is a huge portion but no salad or chips so order accordingly. Very good braised lamb with chips. Green beans cooked with tomatoes is a nice change, particularly with lots of... More

Ate here firstly on penultimate day of our holiday and like it so much returned the following night. Although it's in the Square it's a quiet location near a pretty church and war memorial. The food is unpretentious, tasty and in large portions. Staff our friendly and were genuinely pleased to see on our return visit.

We had a great night with beautiful food. Very friendly family that runs the restaurant. We were extra lucky because a band was playing on the square this evening.

This family run taverna has a delightful setting in the small square right opposite the village church. Our English speaking waitress was most pleasant and helpful. The traditional home-made food was flavoursome and filling. This is where I selected moussaka from the menu and I wasn't disappointed. The place lacked a little atmosphere however, but that might have been down... More

Very friendly family who welcome you to their eatery. Great range of dishes to choose from at a reasonable price. Our son fell in love with the schnitzel so this restaurant became a favourite during our stay in Kalyves. There was a celebration at the church so we were lucky enough to join in the local festivities. Many locals eat... More

Amazing service, amazing staff and amazing food! Not sure why this isn't higher up on the ratings as was probably the best meal we had whilst in Crete!! Great value, home made proper greek food, extremely generous portion sizes and all fresh! Even the cheese on their Greek salads was made fresh by them using their own milk! They don't... More

This was our favourite restaurant in Kalyves - ate there several times and were never disappointed. Most of the cooking is done by Irini and it's all delicious. Try the Chicken with peppers. She's very happy to share her secrets. Service was also excellent - daughter Katerina and her nieces. Lovely food - lovely friendly family. One good reason to... More
