What a beautiful place... Pfff... Since 1952 in business. Family continued what grand mother once started. And that is what you feel. Sitting on the terras we sat under old trees and felt "at home". The staff was very friendly. Sadly, our youngest boy of 4 was stung by a bee, and the staff was of great help. Our boy... More

Ideally located by the seaside, lots of space, typical cretan cuisine, very well executed (snails, rabbit, goat), friendly staff, fairly priced

Kalliotzina offers great fresh fish and a great enviroment! Whatever we tried - fresh fish, octupus, fried calamari, was more than great! Decent wine and great atmosfere. The only 'negative' for my personal taste the facts that cats are going around which i do not like ! Love that in the island offers you dessert as soon as you finish... More

We visited on the advice of some fellow beach visitors, and based on the description the bar was set very high. Unfortunately we were severely disappointed: most of the dishes we tried were simply ok. Prices were expensive for what we ordered. The atmosphere on the beach is nice, but the same goes for the other restaurant in the village... More

Nice place at the beach for lunch or dining under the trees. Very nice food! Try the Kalliotzina-salad and for sure the cheese pies!

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.
