We have been to this amazing restaurant twice during our stay. First we went for dinner and then we went back for a lunch the next day. The staff were super friendly! The dishes were simly amazing. We had the seabass and the sea bream,...both were absolutely great! We tried the local retsina wine, a great choice, then we also ordered a bottle of the local Cretan white wine, that was also great (especially liked that they offered small bottles as well). The next day we had the fried calamari and shrimps, they were also delicious! This place is a gem, we’ll definitely go back when we travel to Crete again! Thank you for the great experience!More

Wonderful and service minded staff. Food was incredible and the restaurant is located by the beach, so the view were amazing during the sunset. The food was unbelievable and would recommend this place 10/10 times.

Fantastic family restaurant with incredibly delicious and well-cooked food and the most beautiful view! The nicest staff ... If you enjoy your lunch here, the sun beds are free. Highly recommended for both lunch and dinner!

From the first moment we entered till the last day of our holidays we spent everyday in this excellent family run taverna. We tried other tavernas but quickly found out you just cant get better service and more delicious food anywhere else! If you are...looking for authentic cretan food, warm greek hospitality, splendid location on the beach with sunbeds and outstanding service dont look any further. This is the place! The key is simple. Its a family run business and they all truly care about every guest. Costas mom runs the kitchen with some amazing know-how that no chef can learn. Its centuries of traditional food making that materialize in the served dishes. Thanks to this the food is simple, authentic, typically greek and OMG so delicious! Calamari so soft and fresh, seafood saganaki absolutely best I have ever eaten, octopus that will make your taste buds explode... plus the warm and hearty service from Costas sister, Alex and Lucia. We never go to the same place twice during the summer but this time Paliria made us change our ways and we are returning back to Agia in August, just because of this special taverna!More
