One of the very best meals we had during our one week trip to Crete. Really really delicious food, in a really attractive setting. Lots of locals eating here, which was a good sign, and no smoking in the restaurant which was a huge bonus. The service was impeccable and unhurried.
Prices were really very reasonable, and I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Had lunch and dinner here on two separate days. The salads here are humungous and could feed an army so check before you order other courses. Had the typical Greek salad and Aubergine salad for lunch.
The Lamb Kleftiko, though small compared to other restaurants was delicious. The bread was fresh and a complimentary desert and Raki was served. Service also efficient and very helpful and friendly.

Talos Restaurant

Our aim is to provide simple, tasty food at affordable prices in a relaxed atmosphere. Our restaurant opens mid April till end of October.

Reviewed By Saarenmaa - Espoo, Finland

Long wait to start with. We were warned thet 'all menus are at tje other tables'. Friendly service otherwise. We had their mixed grill. Ample portions but some cuts had lots of bone slivers and some were overcooked to charcoal. A bit mote attention to this signature dush, please.
Very good fruit salad as a dessert.
Prices were just above the average for the area which cuts to value, too.

Taverna Elia

Reviewed By sarahprotolina

We went there because of the good reviews. The start was very good: very friendly welcoming. We ordered cretan sausages and filled zucchini flowers. The zucchini flowers were excellent, the saussages were good too, although they were partly burned. As main dishes we ordered sea food, which were very bad and partly burned too. Besides, the vegetables were ice cold, which were served aside the sea food. Only the fried potatoes were ok.
When the waitress asked, if we want to take the food home which was left and we answered no, the mood of her went to the other side. Since that point she and the other waiter were not so courteous anymore, she even was a little pertly...
Maybe we ordered the wrong food (it was marked as frosted), however they shouldn't put it on the menu if they even know its not good, which I suspect was the case because they didn't ask us how the food was.
Maybe the chef had a bad day, but we cannot recommend the taverna.
