While food is ok, found too massive, crowded - certainly not the baddest one but my preference is going to more familial restaurants and also not located to a crowded street which is difficult in the summer

Went on holiday at the end of the holiday season and happened to walk past this restaurant one night. It looked lovely with a separate bar bit at the front and the restaurant at the back in a beautiful setting. On arrival we were asked our language so they made sure we had the right menu. It was the best... More

I came here alone, for a drink and dinner, the staff is very friendly and really helpful. They make lovely cocktail! The food is really good (moussaka❤️) I really recommend this place for the nice atmosphere! If I'm back at Crete than I'm come back for sure....

In one week in Malia we ate here several times simply because the menu just had too many options not to try them and the food was really really good. The place is beautiful with its vast garden where you can choose a table under the trees or a couch on the side or a high table with stools in... More

I think my dish was too much small: grilled octopus was actually one leg of the small octopus. But after-meal grapes were delicious!

We were a bit dispirited by the lack of quality options in town, but this is a gem. A good menu and great to see that they buy ingredients in fresh every day and are prepared to run out, rather than hitting the freezer. The staff are really helpful and the food is good. My wife was off dairy and... More

Went here with 3 friends - the food and service is fantastic. We ordered the sea bream and sea bass and 2 of us were not sure about filleting a whole fish but Costas, our waiter, did it for us. Our very young wine waiter, Mike, was very attentive and charismatic. They actually make a really good Irish coffee. It's... More
