On our last day we coincidentally went to this taverna and oh my god it had such an amazing food with the sweetest family who owned the restaurant. After we finished our main dishes and our drinks we went to pay them a well deserved...compliment about food and they gave us complimentary drinks and watermelon. The food was incredible and the service was just excellent. Definitely worth a visit for people who love grilled food.More

Came here as a family of 5. 2 x kids age 6 and 12 and 3 x adults. Meal total was around 100 euros, all had starters, mains and a few drinks including beer and wine. I thought this was very reasonable. Hopefully we will...go again and will likely order 3 x starters to share, because they are very large portions. The calamari in particular is huge, easily enough for 2. House wine is very reasonably priced and nice. What makes this place is the staff / owners. The main guy who I assume is the owner couldn’t have been nicer and the other guys (sons?) are trying to emulate. We had a complimentary carafe of wine and shots. We were stuffed ! 1 of the party commented meat was a bit salty? Not sure if this is a marinade or seasoning they use, but I found the mixed grill amazing value and so tasty. We were initially walking to a better reviewed place nearby, but this place tucked away is an absolute gem. You won’t be disappointedMore

Came here from a recommendation in a bar!! The restaurant and menus look a little dated but don’t be put off!!! The food was fanatic, lovely little family run place. We got the mix grill to share, with jacket potatoes. There are 4/5 similar Greek...restaurants in the area for me this is one of the cheapest and probably the best !!!More

We visited as a group of 16. 8 adults 8 kids. The staff were brilliant from the word go and very accommodating. The majority of us had a meze to share which was really good and there was so much food!! The kids meals were...a great size too and fine for the older kids. The best meal we have had in Crete! If we weren’t going home tomorrow we would definitely go again!!More

We visited in October 2021 just before the end of season. The food was plentiful and tasted great. Owner/staff were really friendly and accommodating, and we all had a laugh. Wasn't expensive either! What you want from a taverna.

We ate at a few restaurants in the town during our 2 weeks stay, but always came back to Marina. It is the greatest place to have an evening in Analipsi. The owner is the most welcoming person you could meet, and he made our...trip special. If we return to Crete we will make a trip to visit. Thank you. Alfie & ElizaMore

We loved this place. Owner is so friendly and food was always good. We came here quite a lot during our stay. Sometimes for food, sometimes only for drinks. Highly recommend if you looking for a lovely, comfy, greek tavern.

Arrived at restaurant and sent to table quickly and was not welcoming. Restaurant was ridiculously hot, but this is to be expected in a village in Crete. People smoking within the restaurant which is off putting and should be clearly displayed when people want to...book here. Waited 25 minutes and did not even have a drink order taken nor any indication from staff that it would be taken any time soon. With this in mind, we ended up walking out of the restaurant and going to somewhere else around the corner which was just as full but service and food in other restaurant was amazing. Considering recent reviews, very disappointed with what we experienced and surprised at the average ratingMore

Booked a table here for a friends anniversary based on the TA reviews. The menu is vast and includes pizzas, schnitzel, burgers and pasta and very little Greek. I was hoping for moussaka but it wasn’t on the menu. Instead o had red snapper, which...I think was bream, the fish was delicious and was served with chips. Service was sporadic, we sat with our main courses in front of us for at least 20 minutes before they were cleared. Manager was friendly enough and we did get freebies, however we would’ve preferred consistent service and authentic food. When we tried to pay by card the sever wasn’t working and we had to pay by cash, we were offered the opportunity to return the following day to pay, however we managed to scrape together the money we owed. If you want authentic Greek food this is definitely not the place for you.More
