“Great food, unbelievable view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We trekked across town to this restaurant because of the previous reviews. We discovered the beautiful beach at Gargadoras and the cool little snack bar built into the cliff. We wondered what the fuss was until we went into the taverna and sat down. The view from inside is breathtaking. The food was really good, gyros pork came with fabulous fries and salad and pitta. Haloumi flat breads with pesto were delicious and the mixed seafood so tasty if a little small. It wasn't cheap, one dish each plus 2 beers and an ice tea came to 37 euros for lunch. That said I would have gone back many times if we had not of been all inclusive. Don't miss this perfect little taverna

“Beautiful, friendly, bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

I agree with everything everyone says about the location, friendliness, and overall vibe. Tucked away on the path from Agios to Almiros Beach, and facing a charming postage stamp sized beach of its own, the restaurant couldn't have a better feel.
The food--however--just does not cut it.
Unlike many restaurants in Agios the food was noticeably bland. For medzhe we had the Greek salad (with inexplicably bland tomatoes--on the day of the farmer's market nonetheless!) the fava beans (much better elsewhere), the eggplant stuffed with bacon and cheese and the vegetable pies--both of which really missed. The eggplant was much too salty and the vegetable pies were, unfortunately, more of a pot-pie crust than anything Greek. The entree, grilled sardines, was adequate, but nothing we ordered had the freshness or zest we associate with Crete.
It is possible it was an off night, or possible that we ordered poorly. The restaurant was filled with Russians, and I suppose it's also possible that they are catering to those tastes. It's too bad because better food at that location would have been magical.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from the concierge desk at Daios Cove and we were far from disappointed! The evening started with the wonderful surprise of being right on the water with a picturesque view and top notch service. The menu was exactly what we were looking for (authentic Greek) and we ordered at least one dish from each choice. The proportions were quite healthy and the wine couldn't taste any better. Considering the number of dishes we ordered the price was very reasonable and it was the perfect way to end our Greek vacation. We would strongly recommend this to anyone who is in the area and looking for a romantic meal.
