We wanted to find the location in Stavros where Zorba the Greek movie has been filmed and found this great taverna from the seaside. Nice beach is also available if you like to swim. We had great lunch with local food and staff was very helpful. The view is really something special, we really enjoyed good food and drinks and... More

The place is still there, a small cave, with little sand between the rocks. Free sunbeds and 5 meters to the sea - great value for this. Visited last time a couple of years ago. Seemed to have the same waiters. Cretan salad still excellent but chicken was not so good as before. Some prices were a bit too much... More

We have been going to the place for nearly 25 years and count Nikos and his father as very close friends now. They saw our children grow up and now no longer in tow, we go back every time we are on the island! One thing to remember here. The place is fabulous for an evening meal and the moon... More

Looking for Stavros beach, we happened upon this semi secluded little cove. The Taverna offered a place to change, free wifi, free sun lounges and umbrellas, spectacular view...but wait...it gets better....after our swim/lounging, we had a very late lunch. Perfectly cooked seafood. Plus friendly, non stressed atmosphere

Has several meals here; the first one because it was a few minutes from our apartment, and the other visits were based purely on convenience given how close it was. The food is good. It is also overpriced. Some of the main dishes are quite small and economical. The bread (which, once upon a time used to be complimentary) is... More

A lovely little restaurant overlooking the cove at Stavros. Fantastic views and good quality food. The stuffed peppers and beans in tomato sauce were super tasty. The tomato salad and meatballs were also very moreish. A really nice, little restaurant with sunning surroundings.

A private beach to swim in the deep blue of the Greek Mediterranean Sea, free sun bed and umbrellas and after comes the best Greek food you can have. And all these just 20 minutes from the center of the town

You can't get more secluded and Cretan than this restaurant. Decent and classic home-cooked meals like γιαγιά used to make. You don't go to Greece expecting Cordon Bleu meals, just tasty and hearty food to glut on while lazing about in the sun. Greek nights on Thursdays are fun but I was confused a little by a rendition of Amy... More
