Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Me and my family were just wandering around looking for a place to eat, when we stumbled upon this gem. The atmosphere is lovely and staff is incredibly friendly. I can honestly say this might have been one of the best if not the best...meals I have had in a long time. I had the lamb chops and was blown away by the taste, and what I stole of family’s plates were incredible as well. Whenever people went by I was tempted to tell them that they were missing out on something amazing. I will definitely be going back!More

This taverna has been run by the family for 40 years. It's basic, without a wide choice of menu, but most of the products are homemade, home grown and made by the family. Wine, Olive oil, Raki are grown. They even raise the pork you...eat. visit a second time and you are welcome like a long-lost relative. Food comes in large portions at very reasonable prices.More

Pappa,  Giorgos, Nikos, Michealis, Yannis, Stelios and of course Mamma,  along with continuing growing family that come the rescue when the hoards of tourists come to dine.  Welcomed with a genuine smile and open space.  Dine at your own pace, from Pappas grill to Mammas...recipes served fresh daily.  The feeling of just being at a family get together will let you relax and endulge in delight.  You might experience a little family Zorba, for to  clap and cheer.More

The greatest food experience in Crete. The staff (family ) was extremely nice and friendly and the food we tested were just amazing. Everything was freshly made and we made the best choice to have our dinner here. Highly recommended. Wish to come back sometime.

This was our favourite restaurant as we ate here most nights. It was a lovely typical Greek restaurant out of the way of the tourist strip, in a nice quiet side road. The staff were so welcoming every time we went and they even gave...us our favourite table it was very romantic with a candle lit, just made us feel good going there. The food was excellent every meal was very tasty and we really enjoyed it there. It was the best restaurant we went to, even the staff were sorry to see us go home on the last night! Just want to say thank you to them for making us feel welcome we will always remember this restaurant as one of the best we have been to anywhere.More

Taverna Romantza is a family run restaurant that serves good food in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The specials of the day listed outside the taverna are always recommendable. The lamb in the oven with potatoes is delicious. We were in Agia Marina for two...weeks and stayed at Iliana Apartments next door to the Romantza taverna and we had dinner here three times during our stay. The house wine – both white and red – is quite good. When you ask to pay, they always serve you a sweet and/ or a shot of raki or ouzo. The Romantza is very recommendable. Because we stayed at Iliana’s next door we walked past the taverna several times each day and came on friendly KALIMERA greeting terms with the family. This was nice also.More
