We returned there every evening during our stay in Vamos, because the food was typical Cretan and fantastic and the service also very good!

The Restaurant is easy to reach, and the owner is a very nice man. The dishes are typical Greek, and prices are not expensive. The quality of the food was good, portions are large! We really enjoyed our dinner here, the atmosphere was very cosy and welcoming.

The food here was excellent and also the drink! The owner has a fabulous collection of old records which he regularly plays, makes for an interesting evening. Good place to eat and watch the world go by on the street outside.,

We returned to Bloumosifis on a number of evenings during our stay in Vamos. A warm welcome every time. nothing too much trouble. Food enjoyable. One draw back was the cat wondering round which upset a number of customers.

We have eaten here many times before but this was the first time this year. In the summer we have found it very busy with the waiters rushed off their feet! Tonight there were only 6 tables occupied and the waiters had plenty of time to talk to the customers. Our waiter explained the different types of Horta available. The... More

We had hoped to return to this taverna for a second night as the food was the best we had during our holiday. We will make a beeline for it next time we are in this part of Crete, The food was delicious and dishes we had eaten in other restaurants were done with special twists here. For example ,... More

We stopped here on our way back from a day out. Good attentive service and friendly staff. Well worth a visit, on the road but not noisy. Pretty restaurant and nice traditional cuisine. We will return next May.

Last night we drove from Kalyves to find this highly recommended taverna with our young children and friends. It's in a beautiful setting and it was extremely busy but they managed to squeeze us in and when we ordered our food we were told that there would be a wait. Unfortunately we hadn't realised quite how long - at least... More
