We were group of four people sharing a beautiful day together on wondorful Crete. On our way to the famous beach which was almost too windy that day we had the best and most inspiring meal during our two weeks. It really is traditional greek cousine, and we tasted food which was different from the food in the tavernas by the beaches. We had for instance ocra in tomato sauce and other kinds of beans, and we had stuffed wine leaves and leaves from the courgette stuffed with rice and mint and goods. We also had lam and the owner (or his father) had thier own lams and goats nearby the resaurant. They also had their own retzina. It was a hot day and there were only few customers in the restaurant, so they had plenty of time to talk to us. The pictures and home made paintings on the wall were interesting and artistically well performed, and they had been taking good care of us during our stay. We hope to come their again both for the food and for the atmosphere. As long as they keep the prizes like the rest it is absolutely recomendable, and it would be a beautiful place to have a wedding or so.

Reached the expectations. Simple, easygoing, familiar, good balance quality/price. I reccomend it, above all if you feel like to spend an evening in family.

I've been there because of the many good reviews but was a little disappointed. The restaurant was almost full of people so it was very noisy. The service was slow and they forgot our wine, so I had to ask the waiter two more times to get it. The food was... just average.

On the way to Falarsarna beach this place worth a visit. Very friendly service, tasty food with local produce. Some organic. We had dinner there twice and can recommend a lot of their dishes. The chicken with lemon is excellent. So dont miss the opportunity.

We had a very enjoyable lunch at Zahaias Taverna which sits alongside the road to Falarama beach. The quality of the food and the hospitality of the owner and waitress were excellent. The owner refers to Tripadvisor as his big brother or something like that; it's clear that the good reputation and popularity of the Taverna has benefitted tremendously from the reviews on here. However it is well deserved and it's clear that the owner does not rest on his laurels and is keen to have constructive feedback on how to improve even more!

Not the cheapest lunch at 40 odd euros but one of the best we had during our week's stay in Crete.
