Visited there with friends who are regular guests and enjoyed tasty Greek food with really good local red wine. The owner is very friendly and stepped out with an effort to get me a fresh fish that was not on a regular menu.

Really enjoyed the excellent food at the Kreta Taverna, so much so that my husband and I returned for each evening of the four remaining days of our holiday and each time received a welcome from the owner and excellent food at very reasonable prices. This is a Taverna for those who like the greek style of cooking - all... More

The food is very good, with typical greek options and variety. The service is also good and the prices are good, specially when compared with the restaurants in the centre of old town of Malia.

If you want try delicious Greek dishes and experience the warm greed welcome, go to Candia Taverna. The food is typical and delicious. The terrace is very nice with many plants and you will be welcomed with Aris’ and Maya’s smiles. All the family will keep a warm souvenir of our visits in this restaurant.

We had a very nice lunch at the Kreta taverna, good food, good prices. We had a tuna salad and souvlaki, both were good. Place was a little empty at lunch but probably gets busier at dinner. Really beautiful setup. Got there by a recommendation of a local from gouves village.

Strongly suggest you either have a small appetiser and a main meal or just a random selection of appetisers. I had hummus and roast lamb with potatoes and it was beautiful! Not pricey either which is an upside! Would definitely recommend to a friend or family member.

We loved this place from the moment we stepped through the door. Very friendly staff and really cosy atmosphere. Ordered many items off the menu and each was delicious and a very generous portion size. Would highly recommend and return.
