The food is not good quality food. First I ordered the gyros, but the meat was full of fat - big pieces of fat was all over the meat so is was uneatable. I was very hungry so I ordered a chicken breast, but the meat was extremely dry and over cooked. My husband ordered the souvlaki - also full... More

Very nice and family friendly place. The food was so good that we went there again the day after, although we were just staying for three nights in this town. (The baked cheese was just excellent!) Good food and very nice staff :)

We had a couple of quick lunches here and found it really good. There is plenty of choice, ice cold drinks and staff are really friendly. Very cheap, large portions and the Gyros pita's were excellent. Don't expect fine dining here, but if you want a quick bite or a takeaway, can't fault it.

Normally, I am not a big fan of takeaway food - especially on holiday, and especially in Crete. However, I will make a big exception in respect of Obelix. They have a really broad spectrum of food on offer and provide a free delivery service. I know its lazy, but on a few occasions we have had a takeaway from... More

Worst coffee in town. They probably used the same capsule for two coffees or the machine has acids remained.

Very good food and low prices! Gyros pita was excellent. Portions are big so you're not hungry after Obelix ;)

Had two types of meze. Prawns were good, the rest was not. Pork was dull, chicken was dry. Worse of all: swordfish was old. Conplaints met with total indifferency. Avoid!

These guys will deliver to your door if you fancy a night in on holiday. For the price of the food, this is a little cracker. It is a take-away styley place, serving loads of stuff from pasta, to pizza, to stuffed pittas, but at €3.20 for a pitta stuffed with whatever you like, you cannot go wrong!

When at the Sunwing/Ocean Beach Club, send the teenagers across the street for inbetween food. Our teenager and his brother exclaimed Obelix's Gyros is the very best they ever had eaten anywhere. (North America & Europe). The cost of 3-4 euro for a big serving isnt unreasonable. Good eats as one says, the boys took it with them on the... More

A very welcoming eatery and a lovely breakfast if you're craving bacon and eggs. You get a generous portion of bacon, 3 fried eggs, coffee, orange juice and bread plus preserves all for 7 euros! The pizzas are nice too and I saw lots of young people ordering the pitta sandwiches which were stuffed full of all sorts. They also... More
