Just called in here for a quick lunch. Waitress was very helpful even moving our table into the sunshine. Food was pretty good too. Would certainly call here again for a bite to eat.

When we were passing this taverna, my minds was really negative, I thought everything will be really oily and the food won't be tasteful, but my friends really wanted to go. In the end I was really surprised with the food. Calamari was really fresh and really delicious, octopus was tasteful as well. Really would recommend this place for lunch,... More

As a single traveller one often gets ignored so a busy place isn't always the best. The waiter was very polite and enthusiastic about his specials, so I chose this restaurant even though it was nearly empty. Within moments of sitting down I was served with some water, unfortunately it was a room temperature rather than chilled, but it was... More

Located on the beautiful Kolymvari seafront, Spatha proposes a very genuine and tasty food, a friendly atmosphere and low prices. The kind boss Anthoni will recommend his moussaka, correctly defined as the best in Crete (it is really good!).

Although it took the waiter a little time to bring the menu it was worth the wait as the food was good and well presented. The food was good and there was plenty to fill you up all so the view out to was made it more interesting.

We took the appetizer for two with a white wine and a beer. That was a good choice for a very low price. The staff is very friendly. They deserve your visit!

A nice surprise. Excellent food in particular sardines and octopus but also the pepper with rice inside . The fried shrimps were also delicious. We liked the atmosphere which is not the fake one you can find in the taverns (restaurants) next door with personell inviting you to enter their restaurants with semi gentle ways... The owner is very kind... More
