By far the best on the island, will go back again.....good selection on the menu fine food,
great service and good value for money.
Choice is great so can dine there all holiday as you wouldnt get bored with the food.
Tried lots od the local taverna's and this is the best.

By coincidence this was very close to our Hotel, the Minos Beach. Run by the two Costas service was good with a very large choice on the menu.
For our first visit we went for one of the Mezze meals on offer. Excellent.
The next night we had pre. ordered the lamb kleftico which this time was done with shoulder not the usual lamb shank. Not quite as good but still very nice.
On both visits we had the dearest white wine at only 15 euros and it was good.
Would we go again, yes.

Wonderful food, attentive and friendly service. Clean, good attention to detail, linen tablecloths and napkins. Typical taverna menu - really good quality and flavour. Liked the concept of having to pre-order traditional Greek oven baked dishes, definitely worth return visit. Another table had been out fishing and returned with their catch for supper. Kostas crew were great and engaging. The whole package a delight to which we returned to several times at reasonable prices. No hessitation in posting this recommendation.

Called today for lunch (staying at Minos Beach opposite on half board) and had wonderful food and very attentive and friendly service. The Cretan chicken, lemon and rice soup was hot and delicious and came with a bowl of home made croutons, we then had a magnificent tuna salad, again with a dressing served in a bowl, a delicious ham, cheese and onion omlette and chips, all washed down with ice cold beer. There is so much to choose from and the taverna is spotless. This was probably the best service we have had....nothing was too much trouble....will be back tomorrow.
