Having tried the food on our first night, there was no reason not to return, our 14 yr old son had Rabbit stifado two nights running. Food was excellent, piping hot and most obviously home made. Having lived in Crete for the last 10.5 years and sampled many dishes, we were not disappointed on any of our returning evening visits.... More

Stopped for our lunch having looked at what seemed a good menu. Decided on the meze for 2... It looked as if the packaging the food came out of had been battered on the back of a van! Worst lunch by far all week. It's not far from the crepe stall though.....

We visited Muses restaurant the first day of our vacations there. Panagiotis - the waiter - was really fast and very helpful. He told us which were the restaurant's best dishes, we trusted him, and we ahad a really good dinner! The prices are also very good! Certainly try fresh kalamari (either baked or fried), both were delicious! Do not... More

Pushy and stroppy waiting staff who were clearly in the middle of having an argument (which they continued throughout the evening), half the menu being "sorry that's off", three quarters of an hour to bring food, Lobster which wasn't (it was Langoustine), overcooked Sword fish, no replenishment of drinks, empty table next to ours covered with uncleared plates of food...

Food in this tavern is very good but not the best :) Server is very friendly and polite man, but he´s greek, so you have to count it takes a little bit longer time, but you´re on holida, so relax!! :) We have mousaka and we can recommend :)

If you are on holiday in Crete and want to eat pizza, spaghetti or grilled chicken then this is probably not a place for you. If you want real greek, home cooked versions of the greek classics then this is aplace for you. Salads are great and creative with ingredients. Classics like stiffado, sakas, saganakis, pies are real home made.... More

This is an ok restaurant. Does lack quick service though. So be prepared to wait. Ok food and some nice staff shame about others though that spoil it. Could offer better customer service and service with a smile.

My fiancé and I had a meal at this restaurant and it was great. We were shown to our table which was right on the front of the restaurant, and to be honest if you dropped your napkin it would have landed on the beach. The service was not too rushed, but with a setting that this place has it... More

This is a great value for quality and price. The food is fresh and the menu offers a big variety of dishes, including Cretan cuisine. The service is very good and the staff is very friendly and welcoming!

The seating is right on the beach front at Plakias but the served from a kitchen that resembles a takeaway on the other side of the road. We were tempted by the delicious looking local dishes on display in the food counter. We waited for an hour and 20 minutes for our order to be taken. When the food arrived... More
