Probably the best place on Agia Pelagia promenade,close to beach: real homemade, basic but excellent meal, warm staff. Recommend to all!

No big deal of the food but nice, quick service and a nice desert. Above average at the area of Agia Pelagia.

The best value for money,(30E a meal) you will understand it because always has people inside and a lot of Greeks, that's rare at a so touristic place. U have to try sea spaghetti. At the end of the meal every time of the 5 times we have eaten they serve housemade sweet, fruits and raki :-)

We came here for 2 nights for dinner. The service was impeccable, food incredible, my Greek family says so too! And above all, the people are great. Talk to them, they are so sweet. You get to be part of the everyday life here on Crete. You'll love it.

This is my fourth year in Crete and Agiya Pelagia. While Agiya Pelagia coast is full of restaurants, Cochily is something special for few reasons: 1. Intimate settings. It has two levels and unlike in other places you feel like in a small private area, either on the first level or the second. 2. Food is one of the best and my friend greek confirmed it. It is made with love and the chef, Petros is excellent. If you good to him he will even make you a greek cigarette. He rolls them so artistically that it is hard to believe it is hand made. 3. Host - Jorgos is very nice man, attends to guests and just very sweet and calm. His son Yannis is coming to help him this year.

Something to say about the place: last year I asked for horta (greek greens with lemon) and Yannis said that horta is finished. So, I said OK, we will pick up something else. In 45 min Yannis came back with horta. While we were eating, his mother went to the garden and collected for us greens and made the dish. Where else you find such a service????

Highly recommend. I and my wife had many nice quiet evenings there and just loved it. Sea is next to stairs. Our favorite dishes: mixed grill and mixed fish for two. Horta is outstanding.
