We had a wonderful visit to Koutsouras and enjoyed many meals at Kalliotzina! Great atmosphere. Our favorites dishes were - meatballs in the oven, feta in the oven, and the fried pork starter. Also, on request, they make a great olive oil with garlic for bread dipping. We also loved the orange cake. All of our visits felt like a... More

We went to this restaurant on the strong recommendation of several staff members at the apartments where we were staying. The restaurant is clean and attractively decorated and situated on the beach at Katsouras about 2 miles to the west of Makri Gialos. Seating is available under cover or on the beach under parasols made of palm leaves. We shared... More

Our first meal at Taverna Kalliotzina was lunch, when we had a great oven-roasted lamb dish, fantastic vegetable pies and a really good mixed salad. We were then given a very nice, complimentary orange cake. Service was efficient and very friendly. Very reasonably priced. It was so good we went back two days later for dinner and weren't disappointed.

Its a tiny place, that you'd never find unless you were either very lucky, or actually looking for it. Think very traditional Crete, patio restaurant, covered by trees draped in garlic, ribbons and lanterns. Serves very traditional cretan home cooked food. Would highly recommend the lamb chops! Very reasonable and a great friendly, Cretan welcome.

Very simple but romantic dinner on the beach. Reasonably priced, great tasting food. Nothing outrageous, just simple ingredients cooked and served hot in an amazing venue on the beach.

We had been sightseeing in the area, when this excellent smell coming from the kitchen made us stop. The decoration of this place is very beautiful in blue & white colors, as well as the setting under the trees and by the sea. We had a table on the beach, under a straw umbrella. The quality of food was excellent,... More

Taverna Kalliotzina is wonderfully situated with beautiful views of the sea. Some of the tables are actually on the beach level, which is where we sat, right by the sea. On an extremely hot, humid day my husband and I decided to go there for lunch. It was absolutely perfect with a very slight breeze, which made me not want... More
