Now this is a gem set in old Malia town in the most beautiful courtyard style location. You are sat under an abundance of fresh grapevines and a lemon tree. Very relaxing and lovely service. The food was simply delicious. We always go for authentic Greek cuisine and this did not disappoint.

Very nice place, situated in the old town. All over the table, there is a gazebo full of grapes. We ate a very good mussaka and souvlaky with french fries. We ate, also, a sublime yogurt with honey and a sweet grapes. Waiter was very very nice and polite. Prize was cheap.

Very small and very nice place with a garden, twined with grapes. Good Greek food, very friendly owners. At the end hostess proposed us some good home wine for free. Unfortunately just in front of it there is an another restaurant "San Giorgio Taverna" which it not better but bigger. So don't be fooled, make the right choice.

We went there and I am probably to blame because I ordered prawns and thought they were something else. So I didn't like my food, but they were so nice. They took it back and brought us frozen margarita and desserts. The place is beautiful and the atmosphere is great. The best reason to go is the kind people who... More

We have chosen this place from Tripadvisor's recommendations as the place for our first dinner in Malia. The rest of dinners of our holiday were held mainly here! Marina and her wonderful place made our holiday!! The restaurant impressed us by very cosy and warm atmosphere, hospitality and very delicious food. We highly recommend this restaurant and hope to return... More

The waitress was very friendly and certainly not pushy like other people we have come across. The only place we went that offered a choice between raki and ouzo after our dinner. The ouzo was a welcome change from the raki we had each time. The pasta with chicken I got was great. We had a nice conversation with the... More
