“Like eating at a friend's place”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I had been to this restaurant in 2009, and it was nice to go here again. The food was as good as I remembered, and service even better. It was pouring the night we were here, but one taxi after another stopped to drop people to the restaurant. Everyone was greeted by staff and owner on a warm, Greek way. Highly recommended for the real Greek experience!

“A must place to eat”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This place is great. If your on Crete this is a place you must eat at. The atmosphere & the food is fantastic. I have to say me & my wife stayed on the island for a week, & never had one bad meal but this place was top without a doubt. Just beware, the portions can be larger than you expect (which isnt a bad thing) but you soon fill up. The hospitality is fantastic. Not pushy, but you feel like one of the family. This place gets busy, but its not cramped so expect to have a fantastic meal, but tables may require a short wait. & the prices are very competitive. What more can I say. SUPERB

“The Real Taste of Greece”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We used this restaurant based on previous Tripadvisor reviews.

It is a stones throw from the busy seafront in a quieter side street but it certainly does not want for atmosphere.

We scouted it out one lunchtime with thoughts of having an evening meal there but we were so taken by the setting and the friendly greeting that we immediately sat down for the first of, what would turn out to be, three meals there.

All of the food is locally sourced, simple and wholesome and made such a change from the formulaic offerings elsewhere. The mixed platters offer a wonderful variety and the serving for two would comfortably feed three. We ordered the house wines which were very affordale and rivaled more expensive bottles that we tried in other restaurants.

Our party of four was particulary complimentary about the moussaka, the stifado and the swordfish but it would have been hard to find fault with anything that we were served.

We were there are the beginning of May and so the resort was quiet but Mythos was justifiably thriving. The overall hospitality is akin to being invited into someones home with the meal being rounded off with a complimentary offering of dessert, raki and lemon ouzu which proved a particular favourite.

If you can live without a seaview for one night Mythos is a great place to spend a few hours enjoing good food at a bargain price!

“it really looks like a best”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The perfect Greek cousin, the perfect, helpful, smiling and very friendly staff and comparing to it low prices. The portions are quite big even the starter for two is enough for five. From my perspective i recommend shrimps, sole or dorada as a main dish.
After the main dishes (even we were already full) we plan to order some deserts but before we did it, we get two plates of perfect desert with 2 small bottles of ouzu and raki as a gift of the house. RECOMMENDED.

“excellent Greece food”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

after several days different sorts of grill and italy foods, we follow the suggestion of tripadvisor to go to this restraurant. the traditional greece food suprised me. We ordered Stifado and Greek of plate. all with very good quaility, and the house wine is also perfect. Staff told us the restaurant has opened for 20 years. owner disigned the restaurant in a very traditional way.
