Fresh fish, great wine and a traditional approach with great views of Spinalonga. Get there in the early evening and just let it happen !!

Loved the place, its a bit out of the way, very lively and has an aura of its own and the place is in a beautiful setting. The food was good, but with so many people it took a while to get to us, I would go back and recommend

We came here on a recommendation from our hotel and were not disappointed! Giovanni, the owner, is very friendly and famous! He knows lady Gaga. The fish was alive before eating and perfectly grilled. The grilled calamari was amazing. Great views, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff...the best!

Had a delicious meal here, on water's edge in Plaka overlooking Spinalonga island. The mixed fish meal (called Poseidon I think) cost E60 for 2 people & included Horiatiki (Greek salad), all the 'dips' - tsatsiki, aubergine dip, taramasalata etc. Then the biggest platter of fish, with sardines, shrimps, octopus, tsipoura, crayfish & more. Far too much food. Well cooked. Nice service. Pleasant people. Lovely evening.

We had a wonderful week in Crete at the beginning of May staying at Blue Palace. The hotel was amazing but on our first evening we ventured into Plaka and discovered an array of wonderful laid back bars (Carob Tree our fav) and Tavernas. We were spoilt for choice but that evening we ate at Giorgos Taverna hasten to add we never ate in the hotel all week. The menu is large and varied although its hard to resist the fish which was fresh and delish served with the family recipe olive oil and lemon dressing. OH had an extra portion of grilled Octopus every evening we ate there he said it was the best he's eaten. The service was very friendly, unrushed but efficient. We took a taxi into Elounda one evening and ate at Lotus Eaters which was equally good but with Giorgos on our doorstep we never made it back. Yanni and his team should be very proud of thier little gem they work so hard to keep it that way.
