I'll make this short and sweet. If you want the freshest and tastiest seafood in a near perfect setting, then don't go anywhere else. Giorgio's the owner is a friendly and professional as it gets and you will be made to feel welcome from the...More

If you want to taste fresh local seafood look no further than this little gem. Tucked away on the edge of the coast at Mochlos, the view is as breathtaking as the service is friendly.

This taverna is my favourite in Crete, although it is out of the way. Best time of the year is the winter and spring. Very few tavernas open this time of the year and you know that you will find good food and beautiful views...More

This place really has a monopoly of the best part of Mochlos; it sits on two sides of a little "peninsula" that faces the archaeological site of Mochlos, which is a complicated site occupied by everyone from Minoans, Mycenaeans, Byzantines, and everyone in between. There...More

You can sit here a few metres from the sea and imagine yourself walking up the street of ancient Mochlos, clearly visible on the island opposite. It’s a magical seaside location. This taverna has been here since the 1900s, pre-dating its unbelievable number of competitors....More

Excellent food as ever, we have been coming to this restaurant for over 11 years. The service is excellent, staff always helpful and courteous. Best moussaka in Crete. Highly recommend.

First, this taverna has a great view of the sea, and a nice quaint feel from the surrounding area. We went here for Greek mezes, 2 types of octopus, 2 types of small fish and grilled squid. All of the food was average, nothing great,...More

By the sea, a nice terrasse and very good seafood. We had lunch there for the third time (2013,2014 and 2016) and just one regret which is that Mochlos is far away from A.Nikolaos where we were based. We intend to find a room next...More

We made the drive from Plaka, near Elounda, to visit Kochilia and the pretty village of Mochlos on the recommendation of Cretan friends in Agios Nikolaos. We arrived there just before dark and managed to enjoy the village both in daylight and at night. It...More
