Brilliant family friendly restaurant with amazing staff (owners). Had homemade chicken nuggets, chips, pizza special and chicken souvlaki which all had value for money, great taste and nicely served. The waiter had great attention for the kids, with pens and drawing paper, balloons and a play area. I can highly recommend this spot rather than the sea view restaurant near... More

There is this amazing hidden gem called Eva Taverna near Malia in Crete that incarnated new concept of a family runned restaurant. The food and drinks served was with no doubt top-notch and the vibe of a welcoming environment made all three nights spent there magical. Also, restaurant is super clean (incredible bathrooms) and very cozy with its attentive and... More

First time in Crete and staying in Sissi. Hired quad and stopped at this Taverna for lunch. Beautifully decorated, owner is a joy to behold, brilliant service and we had a laugh and joke over lunch. We ordered Greek pizza with Cretan salad and these were absolutely stunning. Salad was in itself a work of art, and extremely tasty. This... More

We went to Ioannis' restaurant, actually because he was SO nice to show us to our hotel and it didn't disappoint. It is important to Ioannis not to have to drag people into his restaurant (like ALL other restaurants try to do in Crete) but that people come in because they want to. He has a simple and reasonable priced... More

We stopped off for a quick drink after a long walk. The service was quick and very friendly, stopping to chat and give us advice and a map for other places to visit. We planned to return to eat here but unfortunately didn't get the time. Would love to return for a meal.

My friend and I visited Eva Taverna on our final night in malia. Every meal leading up to this had been lovely but this was by far our best. We had the most friendly welcome from the waiter who looked after us so well for the rest of the night. Our food was cooked to perfection from my halloumi starter... More
