Genuinely the best food we've ever eaten, after a long search for kleftiko we found the ultimate destination. Lovely staff who gave us blankets to keep warm and delicious local wine. So good we ade writing this review from the table!
We found this place in the first week of September whilst we were in the area. It was so good that it became our go-to place even when we went to a different village for the second week . We walked a couple of kilometres...each night to get there but didn’t notice the walk back after the free drinks! Without exception, every dish was marvellous both in taste and presentation. The portion size was huge….you have been warned. Babis is the the head honcho, both he and his daughter Peppi welcomed us warmly and took care to find us a table that suited each night as we had concerns about social distancing due to Covid. The service was slick but still relaxed. We would be tempted to visit the area again solely for this restaurant. A big thank you to Babis and his team.More
Amazing, Great and very special food & service. This experience in Olivi you will never forget. You get here more… taste, super food and service… than you ever wish to expect.
We eat here 3 times (stayed a week) and wishing more times will come!...Realy the best times ever in this restaurant!More
First restaurant in Crete where we really trully enjoyed every meal we ordered. Most of restaurants in the area is rated high, but Olivi actually deserves that high score.
It's beautifully decorated, has an amazing and safe playground, super clean restrooms and even a separate...small toilet and sink for children.
Service is awesome as well - we'll definately be back one day.More
We first visited Olivi in 2019. The family who run this taverna are so welcoming. They have an excellent play area for kids (and a kids toilet!), but you can sit well away from it if you're dining without children. We visited many times, always...loving the food, the atmosphere and the raki. When 2020 and covid hit, it was a wish of mine that we'd make it back there in 2021 for my 40th birthday. We'll, we did and it was as wonderful as before. We visited 4 times this August during our 2 week stay. This is a real family place where you'll be remembered if you return. The food is lovely and the welcome is wonderful. We will see you next year (fingers crossed for that table near the playground so we can watch our boy have the best time all over again). I can't wait.More
Yesterday, the 20th of September, we went to Olivi for the second time, and it was AMAZING! I unfortunately forgot to take a picture, but I got the today's special, which was Spare ribs, and they were so good. That's the reason I forgot to...take a picture in the first place, I was just too excited to dig in.
I will definitely go back there once more, if we ever travel to the area again. And I would recommend going there if you enjoy a cozy family meal with great service and amazing food. 😊👍
