Food was delicious. Spyros was very hospitable. The terrace was lovely and cool on a hot day. The locals all came to chat together at the bar. A good alternative to Amirandes.

Went to Spyros taverna to have a meal with friends, Spyros picked us up from our apartment Debbie his partner made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The food was amazing but the raki is not for the faint hearted, it just keeps coming along with the ouzo. Spyros and Debbie are a very generous couple. Thank you... More

We went as Spyros the first evening in Crete and then we also tried other tavernas and restaurants in the surroundings. I must say that this was surely the best we found during our holidays. We went back there another couple of times. I really liked the mixed grill, the moussaka and the mashed fava beans. Our meat was fresh... More

Spyros and Debbi were incredible hosts during our meal at their lovely Taverna. I knew it would be a cracker when Spyros offered to pick us up from our hotel. From that point the night just got better and better. The food was tremendous and the hospitality was wonderful. The raki is a different story not to be recounted at... More

We visited Spiros Taverna three times during our stay in Crete and each time we had a great time and left really satisfied and with a full stomach. The owner is really welcoming and generous, and he will keep offering as much raki as you can drink! :) We went there to have dinner but we ended up having great... More

Go eat there yum. Do yourself a favour. Not expensive (3 eating loads for £75 euros). Why not order what the gaffer says is on special. Even the tomatoes task special.

I have stayed in Gouves many times, and even though there are many excellent tavernas, I always make a point of going up to Spyros' Taverna in the old village of Pano Gouves a few times on each stay. The food is always good, but it is really good in the majority of Gouves Tavernas, so in order to stand... More
