This is a very good Taverna serving Greek Food and is well liked by the locals (who tend to eat later after the tourists have gone !). It's a family owned restaurant and the food is excellent and the wines are also very good. The waiting staff are very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this place for authentic...

We have visited Bokos many times and on this holiday the food seems even better if possible. Everything is freshly cooked with wonderful flavour and I'm told they source all ingredients locally and from small local farms. Food is well presented and cooked to perfection. Yannis the owner is very passionate about food and ingredients and its reflected in the... More

One of our last stations on creta and I think we had it all, from bad to excellent and this one is definitely on the better side. Good solid Greek food.

Ate here twice during our 11 night stay as the restaurant was quite close to where we stayed, food was great both times. The second time we went they had new menu's which was great. Very tasty home cooked food with great views because of its elevated position. Staff where friendly definitely worth a visit.

Ate here a few times over our weeks stay at hotel close by. The proprietor was excellent and helped us choose some fantastic food from his wide menu. Wonderful home cooking and lots of locally caught fish. Would definitely recommend

The place is nice and quite, it offers nice view and the service was excellent! I had one of the typical lamb dishes which was very tasty and I definitely suggest it!

We've recently returned from 1 week at the Minos Beach Art Hotel, (see my other review) and Bokos saved us from the uninspired A La Carte menu at the hotel. We ate at Bokos on the night of our arrival as we were late getting into the Hotel and the guy on reception recommended it. We were not disappointed and... More

There's a good view from here as well as a friendly welcome and good food. The starters were enormous and we would have shared one if we'd realised. The Souvlaki was very nice.
