A very relaxing place for either breakfast or lunch, alone or with friends and family. The location is fantastic and it's very close to the city center (5 km). Must visit place absolutely :)

We had parked our hire car on the road above the Mili Gorge, and walked down the marked path to the bottom of the gorge. On the way down we passed the Tavern, and we stopped there for much needed refreshment on the way back up again. We sat at a table on the terrace with a good view down... More

A must whilst in Miki Gorge is to stop at the Taverna relax & have a coffee or cold beer. We did just that & ordered a Greek salad as well all very needed after a hot couple of hours in the Gorge. We sat there for a while relaxing eating a lovely salad, looking at the stunning views, not... More

We hiked starting from the Chiron side (towards the ocean) and into the gorge. (See the Mili Gorge reviews). It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes of steady walking, much of it was uphill, and so we were pretty hot and sweaty when we reached the tavern. Luckily no one minded -- everyone was hiking. Taking a break for... More

8 kilometers outside Rethymno you can find this oasis. This familyrun tavern is located in a very fertile gorge with a small river that we never have seen dry. You can easely get here by; taxi and the hop-on, hop off bus, if you do not want to walk the gorge.

I've been visiting the Mili Gorge about every four years for the last 12 years, and its been the subject of much improvement over the years, with the addition of new handrails, paths, signposts all generally making it much more visitor friendly. The tavern at the top offers refreshments, ice creams, and some of the best food I have eaten... More

The Red City Bus Tour dropped us off at the head of the Mili George and a short walk brought us to this tavern. We felt obliged to stop for a quick drink and spent an hour enjoying the views, peace and tranquillity, went for a walk down the gorge, came back and spent another hour enjoying the views, peace...

In the middle of Mili Gorge there is this great terrace and a wonderful view of the natural surroundings. We had Greek coffee, Mythos beer, dacos and raki (on the house) If you're thirsty from all that walking, this is the place to stop for refreshments
