We travel to Crete regualarly and we keep returnng to this restaurant time and time again for very good reasons. The food is really excellent and the staff are friendly and engaging to everyone, from old regular to people fresh off the plane. It attracts more local residients than any of the restaurants in the surrounding area and that probably says more than anything else.

When stopping in Gournes, wheather or not you are self catering or in a hotel, this delightfully charming real traditional Greek taverna is a must. We have spent countless hours here just sitting and doing what the Greeks do best, nothing but eat, drink, talk and be happy. This restaurant seems to feed most of the local community, and with the quality of the food and drink I'm not surprised. The owner and his staff are all Greek but speak fantastic English, nothing is a problem for them and they are always curtious and polite.

This taverna was our favourite on the seafront in Gournes. Excellent dishes, particularly the aubergine, great cocktails and service. Also nice and cheap. Highly recommended.
