Excellent recommendation by our hotel concierge. Every part of the meal was fantastic, the fish they de-boned and cut up at the table. The end of meal, they served us the freshest fruit!

We had such an amazing experience at Taverna Giorgos. View was incredible. Service was first rate. Food was delicious, and portions were large. Prices were reasonable for what you get. Next time we're in Crete, this is a must visit restaurant.

Good fish and outstanding service. We paid 30 euros for a delicious lunch with grilled squid, greek salad, a starter and glass of wine and fresh juice and a dessert. We came back for dinner and had fresh grouper fish, which was delicious. Friendly service.
