Great food with a friendly server! If you are staying in Hersonissos it is worth the drive! From the several choices available in this small village this was the one that seduced us.

This was one of the few tavernas open in old hersonissos when we were there, but glad it was. George, the waiter was absolutely superb, and could teach a lot of writers at high end restaurants a thing or two!

I fully recommend Sofas Tavern. This rustic Greek Tavern is set in the central place of old chersenossis. The reception from service staff very friendly and professional. The food excellent and very good quality for the price.

Highly recommended, cosy Greek restaurant. Very friendly staff, especially George who made a Sheffield family feel very welcome yesterday. Excellent, authentic Greek dishes at very reasonable prices - can't wait to go back!

We had dinner here two days after it opened for the season. The food was very authentic and delicious. We let our waiter George guide us as this was our first trip to Crete. What marvelous cuisine! The service was second to none. I highly recommend this taverna.

2 days open for the season and was greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. George was fascinating and friendly. The food was beyond wonderful. Highly recommend taking the time to visit this gem.

We were recommended this place by a local taxi driver and it didn't disappoint. We were a bit sceptical as it was empty. The food was very very good. Very generous portions. They even ordered us a can to get back to our hotel. Well worth a visit and very reasonably priced.

Very nice restaurant in Hrsonissos, the restaurant is really cosy and the food was delicious, the service was so friendly. We went two nights in a row, and were really satisfied, they served us a large desert platter as a gift and even gave us a bottle of their house wine when we left. Bravo.
