Dinner was gorgeous, the lad and his sons who run the place were fantastic and very friendly. Lovely wee restaurant at the start of the Malia Old Town. Enjoyed the Ouzo at the end! Really nice experience and well enjoyed. Trip advisor rating doesn't do it justice, lack of recent reviews perhaps??

Stumbled on this jem after a walk around the old town. We have fish & chips. Greek style. Which was a oven cooked sea bass & real chips. €10.50 the drinks were average. We were served by the restaurant's owners son who was very polite.

This restaurant is located at the very edge where the old town meets the new, but appeared to be a traditional Greek restaurant.

We were served by a young lad who didn't really have a clue. The food was not great, and not hot, and it was not good value for money

Small family run taverna near the Old Town church. Food is excellent. Service with a smile. Reasonably priced and sometimes free Raki!
