We have ordered lamb balls and grilled octopus along with plain and honey raki. The dinners were exceptional tasty. We ordered homemade kadayif for dessert and two cup of Greek coffee. Kadayif was so tasty, every calorie was worthy. Service was with smile and guest...free manner.More

Happen to stumble on this great little place while out for a walk. We decided on the Feta stuffed meatballs and they were amazing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. What more could you ask for ?

This was our last stop on the island of Crete, and it was beautiful! It was the best meal of our entire holiday, a lovely friendly restaurant and really polite and welcoming owners.

Excellent food and wonderful service. What stands out the most is the fact that literally all of the food is homemade. If you ask nicely and make reservations, they will give you the best fish you have ever eaten. Undoubtedly worth the visit if you...are in the vicinity.More

Out of everything we tried (lamb chops, salads, meat variety and “kids” burgers etc) only several dishes were okay. Service is slow, as staff is not enough for all guests. So called “kids menu” is not existing, as these are basically same portions, prices and...flavors as in regular menu. E.g. kids burger’s main sauce was made with mustard and side salad with vinegar sauce, which is clearly what average kids don’t eat often. What we really liked is yoghurt dessert.More

Disappointing and not worthy of the best restaurant title in the area. We would not go back. Service very slow and food mediocre.

Pegasais Yard was an absolute delight! The ambiance of the cute restaurant was cheerful & cosy, with the pleasure of gorgeous food! As a family of 6 we started with the mixed sharing platter- which was plenty of food & flavours! This sharing platted came...with lots of different delicious plates for us to try, some of which were- feta pittas, veggie barji, Greek sausage & lots of other lovely plates (highly recommend) As a main the pork skewers were super tasty! The dish of the day was “Lamb in the oven” which was a combination of lamb, veg & chips- this was ‘melt in the mouth’ lamb, just came falling off the bone. Highly recommend this restaurant, the staff made us feel so welcome and they even home baked their desserts, 10/10- just wish we had more time to visit this restaurant more than once. Absolutely loved it!More

Wandering around Paralia Kourna (30min from Chania) , we found this dimmed lightning restaurant. Lovely spaced tabled with a welcoming waiter (and his family?) Offering heavy and light dishes. Either for food or waiter, ask to the waiters, they will tell you the freshest dishes....If I have to sum it up: lovely, quiet, good and a reason to come back to the island the Crete.More

Is the best place to eat in Kavros! The food is fresh and very tasty. The price is not very expensive. We recommand this place!

My wife and I often vacation in Crete and we have met a lot of people on the Island. We often eat our dinner at the restaurant Pelagios Yard Taverna and we love it there. The cuisine is excellent and the people are are very...friendly. They made us feel like family and we became fiends with them. We have eaten at other restaurants too. But Pelagios Yard is our favorite place to enjoy our meals and relax after a day at the beach or a long excursion. They have great salads, excellent traditional Cretan entrees and very succulent deserts. Pelagios Yard Taverna is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in Crete. It is very family friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant. You and your family will enjoy it there.More
