The food is amazing and tastes like proper home-made food, the tavern is family owned and this shows in the atmosphere. We started chatting with the staff on the first day and by the last one we felt like we fitted in.

The portions are huge - big enough for two people to split a course and still be full for some dishes.

The place is located right next to falassarna beach on a very romantic little bay.
We had the best fish selection there in all of Crete. The spices used and the way of cooking is very unique to the place.
We went 2 times in 3 days. We had calamari fried, octopus grilled, sea bass grilled, sardines and vine leaves.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
We watched sunset during and after food.
We just loved it and will for sure come back whenever we are in Crete again.

We were recommended this place by locals and omg we were not disappointed! They have a menu but you can also ask to see their fresh caught selection! They take you to the kitchen and let you pick your own fresh caught fish. Katharina the cook is so good! Clearly family ran and with homemade local tastes that are simply incredible!! Make the detour it’s worth it!! Oh and it’s also directly on the ocean so you eat even with your feet in the sand if you choose too:) there is an indoor section as well! Enjoy!

This is quite a brilliant place to have a meal and then to sit on the benches next to sea to enjoy the view and ozou.

They have quite fresh sea food selection and delicious starters and mains.

The calamari and octopus were delicious. Unfortunately they did not have sea urchins on this particular day.

Definitely worth a visit and would be visiting again during next holiday to greece.

An old customer I returned early this season. I enjoyed the serenity of the place
the picturesque view and fresh fish. Try dolmadakia and fresh calamari roasted, they are superb. Their waiter speaks English well and has a sense of humour.
