Food was very delicious, big portion and the people who did services were very polite and wonderful. Really recommend this place and I'll be back there when I'll be in Crete next time.

Lovely family run restaurant. Home cooked food. Friendly and welcoming. Plenty of locals in the night we were there, always a good sign. Has a playground for children in the garden.

What a lovely informal restaurant this is. The staff is super friendly and the food was delicious. We sat in the outdoor area seeing the sun set behind the mountains. All together a lovely evening

Had a fantastic lunch here after walking up the short strip of shops. It really is underrated as the food was phenominal! Great example of doing classic food really well! The highlights of the meal were the calamari and the prawns, both incredibly fresh and...just done well. The service was also great and we felt looked after the entire time. A great spot that doesnt need thrills or strange dishes, but just good tasting food in a lovely setting. With 4 dishes and a bottle of wine/water coming to 60 euros, it was an overall memorable experienceMore

We visited here twice while we were on holiday in Crete because of the fantastic homely service and delicious food. The orzotto was divine and so were the wild hibiscus cocktails. They also have a shop with their own products, where my family brought lots...because we all enjoyed it so much. A member of my family also left something behind one night and they kindly held onto this for us to come back the next day. Would definitely visit again and would recommend this for families, friends and couples. 10/10!!More

We went there based on the 5star reviews & we’re really disappointed, service like nobody cares with dirty hands under finger nails, meat totally burnt, risotto nothing special. It looks like a lovely place on the picture but we don’t know what changed from last...year. Not going again.More

We visited based on previous excellent reviews, we were not disappointed! The welcome was genuinely warm and we were made to feel really at home. This lovely place has a real family feel to it, the amazing staff were simply lovely. Nothing was too much...trouble and they were chatty and made us feel so relaxed. The garden area has lovely views and came into its own as the evening turned to night. We are there 3 times in our week stay at a nearby hotel, if you can visit on Greek music night you are sure to have fun! The 3-piece band played a mix of traditional and modern modern songs and people couldn’t help but get up and dance. The food is good, locally sourced and the portions really generous. We haven’t laughed, relaxed and enjoyed an evening meal so much in ages! Definitely recommend a visit if you’re anywhere close!More

We found Pelagias Yard when taking a stroll around the small streets surrounding our hotel. The beautiful garden and very friendly staff caught our attention so we decided to have dinner there. And believe me - we didn't regret it. Not only was the food...and wine incredibly good (the are very flexible when it comes to vegan options, too!) - the view during sunset in the mountains made this a magical place. The cherry on top was the live band playing some wonderful music in the background. I have never had dinner in such a beautiful place and we were so stunned, that we came back another day. A full 5/5 for us and we would love to come back some day :)More

We stayed in an air bnb very close to this tavern. On our first day of arrival in Crete we were very hungry and tired. And we had a really nice meal after a long day. I recommend it for families and old people because...it has a playground for the little ones. And service was really good. They have Greek Night on Monday with Greek dancing which was really fun. There also is Cretan Music on Thursday which was very folklore. I definitely recommend it!!!!! :)More
