My Big Fat Greek Dinner

loved this place, the boss and his partner treat everyone like old friends, the food is fantastic, the little outside tables could do with NOT being on a main thoroughfare, but the cars in the main managed to avoid the diners. Would very much recommend this if you ever find yourself in Gouves... read more

My wife and I just finished a 10 day trip to Crete to visit places I lived when I was 10 years old. Our goal was to stay away from the resorts and focus on the real people and food of Crete. This taverna was exactly the place we wanted to eat and we ate there twice during our trip.... More

We were staying at Klio apartments so not easy to get to this place. We hired a buggy for 1 day so thought we might take a drive to this place just to have a look. What a beautiful village, this place is right next to a beautiful church. We thought we would pop in for a beer because it... More
