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.

Easy to drive past..! Doesn’t look much from the road, but the food, welcome, service and view were priceless! Highly recommended as a visitor, and obviously also by the number of locals eating there!

Brilliant food and great service. We had a delicious meal with the swordfish being a particular highlight! The view is absolutely amazing!

The płace is picturesque and the food was ok. The low rating is due to a certain situation. We wanted to order a dorada fish. It was not available. We were offered another one at a higher price. The waiter forgot about the order but...we were offered wine as an apology and that was not a problem. But then we got dorada and were charged for another more expensive fish which we realized too late. Maybe it was not done on purpose but anyway we felt like we were cheated.More

Kalliotzina was recommended to us by a local and we were not dissapointed. The food was very good, with the spicy cheese spread and the anchovies in chili being our favorites. All tables seemed to have a view of the sea and half of the...tables were on the beach. Very romantic. Great service too – what's not to like? Even the dessert was more than your standard watermelon. In addition their house white wine was better than what we're used to in Greece. Hot tip 1: We tried to time our dinner to coincide with the sunset, but came a little too early. Check the time of the sunset to decide on when to arrive. Hot tip2: On a windy day you would not want to be in one of tables on the beach, but rather on the terrace under the gorgeous trees.More

Hundred year old tamarisk trees provide a natural roof and air conditioning for this beachside taverna. There can't be many more charmingly situated, with tables spilling onto a miniature sandy beach and the sound of lapping water providing nature's background music. Food is traditional with...plenty of local meat and salad dishes, but fresh fish is where it's at. There's the usual seabream, squid and tuna, but try grilled bogue (a small type of bream with the wonderful scientific name of 'boops boops') for superb flavour, or a starter of shrimp bruschetta with avocado. Excellent house wines, and ask for olive oil for dipping your bread. It comes from their own trees. Simple food, good ingredients, well cooked, great value and enough charm to float a tamarisk tree. Crete in a nutshell. Or maybe a seashell...More

We've visited this restaurant on our last three visits to Makri Gialos, situated in Koutsoura just a ten minute drive away from Makri. The restaurant is popular with locals as well as tourists, always a good sign. We arrived early and were fortunate to have...a table overlooking the sea, (there are number of tables on the sandy beach below but we prefer our table on the main, elevated part of the restaurant). Service was good at this time of the evening but expect this to change as the restaurant gets busier later on in the evening. We started with a typical Greek salad which was huge and shared between the two of us. Main courses that followed consisted of lamb chops which were plentiful and Seabream which came with a small salad and rice, both dishes were delicious although some of the lamb chops were tough. The complimentary sweet was 'orange pie' otherwise known as Portokalopita which is a favourite of us, the bill including wine, beer and bottled water came to €42 without a tip. We would highly recommend a visit.More

Went there 3 times during our stay at Ferma. Most dishes are excellent or great with few exceptions. 2/3 days service was excellent. The 3rd day many mistakes where made but it was after a long party... Still an excellent choice

We were staying @ White River Cottages and it was recommended to us by Helen. It's about a 10 minute drive to Kalliotzina which is right on the beach. We liked it so much the first night that we went there every night for two...weeks; we weren't disappointed. It's not often you find a combination of good food, friendly service, great location on the beach, and reasonable prices. We're probably going back next year.More
