Went to this seaside restaurant on a local recommendation. Loved the dolmas and especially the zucchini blossoms - the best so far. Entrees were good but not exceptional. Location is memorable.

We stopped for lunch because the view was promising - and also because they freed a parking spot, for us, in front of the restaurant. First disappointing: they didn’t have any fish on the menu! The explanation: last night was windy, and the fishermen didn’t...More

Tavern is in a nice place in Ierapetra and it is one of the places that is preferred mainly by the locals. Food is ok but nothing excellent.

Enjoyed the octopus on the steak and fried shrimps! They were excellent matched with local retina wine! Although they were full, service was fast . Squids were very tasty! The apocalypse was the chuccini balls!

Lunch by the beach. The highlight was the zucchini fritters (kolkokithokeftedes) - very tasty. The pork casserole dish was very ordinary. The mezzes were fine. In terms of value for money, it ranked lower than other restaurants we had visited. The waiter was very obliging.

Unfortunately unequal quality of food. We had delicious moussaka and dakos, vegetables was ok, but octopus was the worst seafood we ever had - hard to chew and burnt. Service was ok. It's rather tourist restaurant than local. If you want moussaka I recommend this...More
