It’s a gem hidden in the mountains. We got recommendations on this Taverna so we visited this place during our stay in Malia. The food was true Greek and it was so delicious. If you want to taste “Greece” visit Taverna Niki.

Visited this restaurant in May, the food is just out of this world out of the oven. It is a good drive up into the mountains but it is so worth the drive. This restaurant uses the clay oven on a Sunday's in low season....More

Wonderful family run place near the monastery. We have visited a few times and the food is always delicious. Chicken and potatoes from the wood oven are so simple but so tasty. A lovely setting surrounded by walnut,fig and olive trees. Busy on a Sunday...More

Stopped on the way back for a cup of coffee. Even though it was very late they still let us in with warm welcome. The coffee and tea were great.

Stopped by for lunch on a jeep safari and I can definitely say I'd visit again. It's situated in such a lovely place so it's quite peaceful but not too quiet. The atmosphere is nice and chill and the staff are so polite and friendly....More
