We have been going to Manolis for several years and the standard of food gets better and better. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere which captures the true spirit of Creten cuisine. It is a family run business and each member of the family and staff ensure their guest have a good time . We would strongly recommend it to everyone as you will not be disappointed.

Tried here on our first night in Agia Marina and arrived early as we'd had an early flight. It was heaving before 8pm but we got a table by the entrance, not a good spot as it turned out as the local dogs were barking their heads off!

No briam left so it was gemista and a chicken souvlaki with a decent spicy cheese to start. Nice bread and excellent local draft beer. Very large portions.

My husband and I visited this restaurant after a friend recommended it and it served the local beer, Xarma(?). He also mentioned the food was good. We started with the cheese and spinach pies and they were the best we had tasted. I had the dorado, excellent and my husband had a spicy pork and sausage dish which was also good but a little more pork would have made it excellent. The meal was finished with free, delicious chocolate cake, ice cream and our very favourite, raki. Lovely restaurant,food,beer and staff.

Set up in the old village, Manolis draws large numbers of customers all season every year. Arrive reasonably early or book to ensure a table. Staff are all friendly and welcoming.
The menu is extensive and Yannis will detail the daily special. You can always ask for a slight change to a dish, if possible it will be done. Food is well cooked, portions are large and the house red good. Prices remain very competitive.
The large number of returning diners can't be wrong.
See you again in May.

Having tried five recommended tavernas we rated this a very close second. The food is excellent with a special every day and traditional cuisine to choose from, and the setting is very nice. The staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.
