My partner wanted to visit this taverna overlooking Souda beach was quite a long drive. The taverna was so friendly and the food prepared by the wife of the late owner was so fresh and enjoyable. You could tell she loved cooking and appreciated our comments. The beach is great and you have the convenience of the amenities.

Beside one of the best beaches in the area, great lunchtime spot. Very busy on a Sunday. Delicious grilled sea bream. Good value. No charge for the sunbeds on the beach. Would definitely return.

We visited Souda beach and had our lunch in Taverna Galini. We ordered Galini salad, grilled sardines and fried anchovies. Grilled sardines were by far the best we had ever eaten. Fried anchovies were also very fresh and tasty. The view was fantastic and the service was fast. We really loved this place and definitely would like to go back... More

We visited taverna Galini 3 times on our holiday and it was always good and sometimes excellent. The excellent included beetroot salad, chicken in orange & mustard sauce and lamb in yoghurt. The highlight was their Wednesday evening of dinner accompanied by traditional Greek music. The music and songs were fine and two (rival?) dance classes performed for our entertainment... More

The place is nice and it's ok to get a beer at Galinis beach bar. However, the "Kretan Salad" was just terrible, and the small/mid size fish were too smelly to be really fresh.
