This is an American-style burger/pizza/pasta place with a great bottled beer selection and a nice restaurant & bar design. Good for a change of menu and atmosphere if you are tiring of traditional Greek menus. Around 25 euro per person for a couple of courses with drinks.

Great, nice and neat venue. Fantastic meat dishes, great beer selection and very good cocktails. The seating is spacy. The waiters friendly and beer-savvy. Nice breeze from the sea. Pricing is above the Cretan average. With the two of us, a starter, a main beer and cocktails... It is a great treat, but not something for every night for people... More

We walked to this restaurant which took us about half an hour from Maleme. It was worth the walk. The food was delicious and the music was eclectic and fun. They do a great range of beers. Service and advice about wine was good too. It got very busy so,it's worth getting there early

Met up with friends for a meal and all l can say about the Bossa Nova is fantastic. A little more expensive than other restaurants but food is amazing. Wide choice to choose from and if you like beer it's the place to be over a 100 different types. Have visited before and will go again.

This is a different choice in a rather touristic area. The environment is great, the food, although not in great variety, is excellent and nicely served. Too many kind of beers, they run out of non alcohol beer though... The pool inside occupies kids!
