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

This Greek restaurant is fantastic,if you want to go to a family run taverna which serves up real Greek home cooked food. The welcome is warm and genuine and your fellow diners are Greek and a few tourists,plus the elderly Greek men putting the world right! The Greek salad at 5 Euros is huge,and contains cheese from their own farm,delicious.... More

Ate lunch and dinner here several times. Wait staff was courteous. Food was excellent. House wines and beers were equally refreshing. Nice setting adjacent to an old olive oil mill. Prices are incredibly reasonable and portions are bigger than most tavernas. You won't be disappointed.

Now called O'Milos, this is probably the best value taverna in town. Food is top notch and so unexpensive it makes it even better. Service is friendly and efficient. A must visit in Kalyves.

I was never keen on the old Zorbas... Sorry ! But now under the stewardship of Ireni, who has looked after us for many years in The Square, this Taverna has bloomed into one of the best in the village. The atmosphere, the views, are quite lovely, as is the food and service. Please don't miss this lovely little restaurant
