“To our opinion the real Cretan cuisine”

Reviewed 18 September 2017

Came back to this beautiful small taverna and had two splendid dinners here. It was nice to meet the friendly owner and his son again. Their hospitality is outstanding. The food was excellent as ever! And the local raki from Kallikrates: great and 'soft'. To our opinion this is one of the best taverna's on Crete, and we have visited many in the last 17 years (and 28 trips on Crete) The whole 'package' you get at Kali Kardia is outstanding: the simple but awesome tasting food, the hospitality, the kindness, the atmosphere in the garden and also the value for money.. Love it!

A proper traditional Greek family taverna with the bonus of terrific pizza (just next door to Maria's bakery). This place has a lovely relaxed terrace and good friendly service. Also, it's excellent value: we paid about €20 for a starter, a pizza, a main, and two beers.

A nice place to eat your dinner under grape plants.. Nice pizza and chicken souvlaki! Very close to the castle in Frangocastello!!

Pleasant and unpretentious eatery, located just beyond Maria’s Bakery going west past the castle. Your best bet if you are in the area for a short time and you’d like something to eat and drink but don’t want to walk far. I write this because there are day trippers who park close to the notorious taverna you’ll find opposite the castle (see other Trip Advisor reviews for horror stories). Kali Kardia is the real deal and you won’t be disappointed.

We went for our first Cretan evening meal here and we're extremely impressed. The tavern was full when we arrived but the staff quickly made room for us by bringing us a table outside, which we thought was lovely! The staff we're thoroughly attentive despite being so busy. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. This is a must visit for tasty, local food. You will certainly leave full and with a smile on your face :)
