Fata Morgana - Paradisos, Tavern & Cafe

Reviewed By superam - Derby, United Kingdom

.confusing drinks menu with no size or price for beer and no receipt given.
4 euros for 400 ml of beer is crazy.
Was going back to eat here but no way now.
I can get better beer for 2.50 euros for 500 ml
Dont rip tourists off...
It's bad for business.
Don't use the blue sunbeds either owned by the same business.

Taverna Vatalos

Reviewed By Shirley E - Radlett

We were staying in Vamos and enjoyed the lovely drive over the Mountains to visit Frangokastello Beach. We discovered this lovely taverna 2 years ago and so were keen to visit again. We wasn't disappointed, the food was lovely, fresh and good sized portions. The stuffed vine leaves, stuffed tomatoes and small fish were all excellent. The taverna was lovely and clean and the owner serving was helpful and friendly. We only ate here for lunch as we had quite a journey back to our villa, shame.

Taverna Drousoulites

Reviewed By felicityc60 - Adelaide, Australia

Unfortunately we were unaware of previous reviews of this restaurant. From the outside it appears to be quite a charming place, with lots of character on the ground level. On closer inspection we found the place to be very neglected, both structurally as well as hygienically. The toilets were disgusting - not fit to sit on! and smelt badly. The service and food was no better. My friend ordered a seafood risotto (the special), which the owner described as full of prawns, mussels, fresh fish etc. There were barely more than 3 pieces of seafood in the whole dish, and these were shrivelled up like they had been left overs from the day before. Our meals were not much better, with the side salad to the calamari totally inedible (just dried out vegetables that were not fit to be served) and the bread toasted and dry (probably stale). When the bill came, the price for the "special" was more than what was advertised on the board out the front of the Castle. The staff member serving us looked obviously stressed when my friend said she would not pay for the food, and the owner became rude and insulting when told we would not pay for that dish. No apologies, no explanation, definately not the usual Greek hospitality and standards. Do yourself a favour and DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTAURANT. It should be closed down!

Taverna Nikos

Reviewed By Rūta A - Vilnius, Lithuania

We have been visited this many times before and it is still the best! Garlic bread is best we have ever tried, also that spaghetti with tomato sauce. And cheese croquettes!! And stuffed wine leaves. And greek salad. Everything was perfect. Nikos and his family are the best. We hope to come back, it was very very good. There was 2 dinner at this taverna this year and we were not able to finish our food neither the first evening or secound so they packed this for us. Really huge portions!

Sunrise Taverna

Reviewed By YorkRAC - York

We lunched twice at the Sunrise whilst staying in the area. The food was excellent in quality and value and the situation unrivalled, overlooking the azure Libyan sea and a beautiful sandy bay. The owner was quietly welcoming,rather than effusive, which was fine. Service was efficient and discreet, finishing with the usual complementary glass of raki. The Sunrise offers tranquility, stunning views and very good traditional Cretan cuisine.

Blue Sky

Reviewed By Elisabeth R - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This family-run taverna is well worth visiting. It has a good varied menu of local dishes. I particularly enjoyed the chicken in figs. The second time we went, it was very full, a sign of its popularity, though it made service a bit slower.

Taverna Babis & Popi

Reviewed By snurdbat007 - Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

The food is good average taverna fare: nothing very special and not specially well cooked. Is it rather resting on last laurels?

Ammos

Reviewed By TravelledGeorge - West Midlands, United Kingdom

Stopped here as part of an coach excursion that was filling time by adding beach stop. Spotted this place up the hill and thought I would investigate. What a find, views over the beach and sea, everything cooked freshly. Excellent calamari, would definitely recommend a visit.

Elia Traditional Cretan Taverna

Our restaurant is a small one in Sellia,with nice view from the Terrace.Our cuisine is Cretan,Greek and meditteranean,and we cook only with olive oil and products from our region.

Reviewed By skihol14 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

That was an accidental find. Fine location with the Terrace view, gentle wind breeze, fantastic food and friendly service. Proper relaxing atmosphere and QUIET. You will find what you want to eat and will not be dissapointed like in many 'resort-picture-food' junk restaurants.

Reviewed By Skin197 - Auckland, New Zealand

Came for dinner only 10% of the tables occupied yet service was quite slow and not that welcoming or friendly; had a Cretan salad which had cheese, dried figs, lettuce and pomegranates; and mussels cooked in tomatoes peppers and cheese sauce (tasty). Followed by 4 scoops of assorted ice cream- a soda and 2 glasses of white wine, the bill came to 32 euros. Nice table overlooking the beach with the sound of the waves crashing on the beach.
