Our experience at Taverna Marouvas started with the owner, Manolos, saving us. When we arrived in Vamos after almost 30 hours of travel, we couldn't find the villa we rented. Our phone wasn't working and we only encountered atms that were closed on our way into town, so we had no money! We stopped to ask for directions, and Manolos saw that we were pretty flustered. Manolos called our travel agent for us, offered us food and drink and said "don't worry, you pay tomorrow". He completely trusted us! He is honestly the nicest person we have ever encountered. After he fed us and calmed us, and drank with us, he drove us to our villa! We tried the taverna that was highly recommended the street, but completely preferred Taverna Marouvas. When we told Manolos it was our last night in Vamos, he closed our menus, asked us a few questions about some of our food preferences, and brought us out what seemed like a 5 course meal of the best food we have ever had. octopus, greek salad, sardines, and so much more. The food was the best that we have ever tasted, olive oil, wine raki, desserts, all divine. We expected an expensive bill and were blown away that it was like 30 euros including all of our drinks! We dream of having the chance to go back to vamos just to eat there again!

Really friendly and traditional Cretan tavern. Ask Manolis for really cretan food. Sygglino, pork from the oven with fantastic baked potatos, mousaka, chicken and pork on the grill village sausages. Also they serve dishes for kids spaghetti etc.They offer at the end fresh fruits or traditional sweet "loukoumi" and cold tsikoudia to drink.
