We stumbled upon this place looking for a good spot to look over the lake. We had a glass of wine, and on looking at the menu then decided to stay for lunch. The food was superb (some of the best we had in Crete)...and the service was very friendly and hospitable. We would highly recommend this place. The views over the lake are great too!More

Visited this restaurant after the reviews in TA. View was totally breathtaking, you can see the lake from above! The food was ok, fried zucchini very nice and the desserts also.. stuff not very quick.

This restaurant is in an amazing location at the top of cliffs overlooking the bay. The food is Greek but with a gastronomic twist. The Greek salad was amazing and the pasta with prawns was exceptional. Well worth a visit!

Spent a week in Crete and this is the only restaurant I visited twice. For good reason, the food here puts a creative spin on traditional dishes. E.g. the smoked aubergine salad is often rather bland, at Gioma it has a wonderful rich taste and...texture. I also strongly recommend the octopus (grilled to perfection), the mushroom giouvetsi, and the gruyere saganaki, which is something I had never eaten before. The same is true for the yoghurt with tahini and pepper sauce that the restaurant provided as an ameuse-gueule. For a perfect experience and if you are alone or as a couple, call beforehand to make a reservation for one of the three smaller tables under the olive trees. You’ll have an unbelievable view of the Lake from there.More

Perfect restaurant at a perfect spot. Service was super nice (we got served by Yannis) and really attentive to our food restrictions. The kitchen prepared delicious plates. If you want a nice local experience with a great sense of hospitality you can’t miss this restaurant,...topped by a perfect view.More

The restaurant is situated overlooking the lake with a superb view of the sea. The personnel were professional and kind. The restaurant's decoration is done with excellent taste and even the bathroom is quite unique. The food was delicious. I highly recommend.

Man, if you want to have some nice food with a beautiful view; go to Gioma Mezze. You will not be disappointed. We ordered a few appetizers and a very tasty salad, not knowing how big the portions would be haha. We ended up with...a table full of beautiful food. Staff was very nice and the meals so delicious and flavourful. Definitely recommend!More

Fantastic location! Super friendly staff. Good food! Everything was just perfect. One small thing, food came to fast so we felt a bit rushed.
