During a holiday on the north coast we drive across Crete to visit the south.
We chanced upon this taverna and a beautiful beach.

The service was superb and the food the best I have had throughout my ten day stay.

I cannot recommend highly enough.

I was more than happy to pay the more than reasonable prices and yet they still provided complimentary bread hummus, water and watermelon

Also free wifi and fabulous toilets.

Will most definitely return and recommend to everyone visiting Crete.

Thankyou

We enjoyed dinner here almost every evening of our stay.
The service was quick and really friendly, and the food is delicious.
I recommend you to try the fresh meat or one of the casseroles.

You can enjoy your lunch or dinner in a cozy setting with a nice view.
We would love to come back next year!

We found Violakis thanks to TripAdvisor and we couldn't be happier.
The food was fresh and full of flavour, the service was friendly and quick, and they went the extra mile for us when our little boy fell asleep before finishing lunch by offering us to pack the food and take it home.
A must visit if you are in the area.

A great restaurant right by the sea, where you can enjoy the view of the water alongside with amazing, fresh food whether that is seafood or meat (don't forget to try the oven potato and the fried mushrooms, they are delicious!) in a relaxing and welcoming environment. Totally enamored with the fig salad, definetely a must. Excellent service, fast and friendly staff and two of the best owners, all there to make sure you have the best dinning experience. We visited in the morning to go swimming and enjoyed our lunch and at night for cold beers and a pizza, both time it was excellent. Totally the place to go to if you are in Damnoni.
