“SImply tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Vlahakis is simply a very tasty fresh fish taverna. It's next to the fish harbour, that's how fresh his fish is. Not on the tourist trail, no menu, just salad, tsatsiki, prawn omelette, maybe anchovies if he has recently marinated them, then fish , chips, courgette slices. Your choice is simply how many of each you'd like. If you like totally unpretentious eating like the locals, try here.

“Fresh and fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

We've been coming here for many years as it is excellent. Always a warm welcome and always a good selection of fresh fish, which he will fillet at your table to save you the trouble. Lovely salad, consistently good house white wine, and his prawn omelette is just outstanding. A great place to stop off for a quick bite on the way to the airport, or a longer meal on the way back!

“Most authentic fish restaurant in Souda.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

I've been visiting this wonderful restaurant for many years. The setting isn't promising and the decor far from flash but for an authentic, Cretan meal with genuine service and excellent value, you won't find a better place. As it's family run, you see the same faces from year to year and the menu doesn't change either. Mr Vlahakis will take you into the kitchen to inspect the fish or, if you prefer meat, will cook you an enormous pork chop. For me, the highlight of the meal is the fantastic prawn omelette - it's just prawn, egg and cheese but has such an amazing flavour. They also do wonderful tzatziki, great chips and delicious courgettes, fried in very light batter. The house wine is fine and very reasonable. In summer you can sit on the street and watch the bustle of Souda, in the winter get a table by the fire - Mr Vlahakis always thinks it's cold which makes me glad he doesn't live anywhere further north!
