We ate here a few times on holiday last year and have no complaints. Sundays slow cooked Lamb was great as was the rest. Views are amazing.

Good range of food - Cretian, pasta, grilled meats, schnitzels, fish. Good service. The restaurant has its own wee beach with free loungers so it makes it easy to spend the day

Amazing location, fantastic food, great staff. The sound of the sea, the breeze and that delicious retsina, what can go wrong?

A lovely setting right on the seashore, with sunbeds for customers during the daytime. We ate there three times during our stay nearby. Typical taverna fare but none the worse for that, and wine by the carafe (very good white). Prices reasonable, and a popular...destination for lunch particularly.More

We came with our 3 year old son. He was gladly entertained by the two cats who was sneaking around the tables. We ate fish that was excellent. The straff was friendly, but didn't smile too much. I draw one star because of cats that...was reaching for food at our table, and one star for having to pay over €200 for 4 medium fish, 2 beer and water melon as dessert.More

Not a great taverna. Views are good but the food was disappointing and the staff looked less than happy. No kids options.

One of Stavrós’ classic restaurants, Thanasis is a must go. Sea view and good food is all a man can ask for.

you can choose the fresh fish you want if you ask for so you can be sure it's not frozen!!! i had a red snapper it was fresh, grilled and very good from the open sea! a bit expensive but not so much compare with...other places in Crete. same range of price.. great location, by the sea, beautiful view.More

Beware - service totally shambolic - prices very high. Some food sold as fresh is frozen, then fried, (caused stomach upset-sorry to say). Mutton served as lamb + white sauce was gloopy with cornflour, plus careful you don’t pay for drinks served at the next...table.More
