In frangocastello there are many tawern’s and all have the same menu and similar prices. The only thing that make a difference is a quality. This is the worst food I had in all Crete. Mix grill was just horrible, sth as simple as Greek salad was eatable to say at least but far from good. Don’t do that to yourselfs, I have suffered enough. There are many better places with better views , location and food. This can not be nr 1 in frangocastello , the food is simply disgusting.

Vatalos is an excellent taverna with good local produce from the owners' (a set of brothers) farm. The Sfakian lamb, the sausages and the fava are particularly good. The prices are very good for the quality of the food and you usually get a cake and raki with your bill. The staff are very nice (once gave us a lift home!). Well worth a visit.

Came here after reading the reviews, on a trip to see Frangokastello. Just coming here was worth the trek across the island alone - the food is as good as everyone says, in a beautiful setting with unbeatable sea views.
