Arkoudaina Garden

Reviewed By Owen M - London, United Kingdom

If you don't like food that is different and clever you probably won't like Georgio either, the man who runs this brilliant little taverna. His passion for foraging and to bring alive the rich cornucopia of produce available on his home island is inspiring and matched by the excellence of his food. He also has a great range of organic beers and wines without the price tag that puts people off. Cretans seems very keen on organic produce and less keen on monsato etc At this tavern the chef has taken things to an artistic level - but no sacrifice is made to taste. We had snails (perfect) house salad (simply incredible) goat chops (yum) and dolmades (delish). You get the impression everything is good. There's no menu as such, it depends what has been harvested or bought in that day - don't let this put you off as there's still a great range of food on offer. My wife who is coeliac and veggie said best meal she had had for a very long time and I concur. Can't wait to go again. The bill was a nice surprise as well as well as the ice cream and soufflé as a free pud and some proper homemade raki with honey. Fantastic

If you stop here, it is most likely to grab an ice-cream. Don't! It is overloaded and fatty, and does not melt away even when warm. Gelatine? Def the most un-italian ice-cream I' ve had in a while. Their burgers are good, though.

Arolithos

Family restaurant est 1992. A large choice of appetizers (mezedes), traditional kretan food, and a lot of specialities.

Reviewed By Neve05 - Middlesbrough, England

My sister and I went here for our evening meal on the second night of our holidays. We had picked out quite a few restaurants for evening meals and some others for lunch as there were so many good write ups and we thought we would try as many as we could. It didn't work out that way as after our meal there, we were determined to go again and actually ended up going another twice. Need I say more. This restaurant is run by a lovely family, mum, dad and two sons. On our first visit we had giant beans in tomato sauce, which my sister and I love and these were divine, followed by the lamb with potatoes and feta in a pot, which was superb. We had a carafe of red wine to end the night off. When we asked for the bill we were given yoghurt with pumpkin (neither of us had pumpkin before) which was delicious and a small bottle of ouzo. The bill was very reasonable indeed, as the quality of the food was faultless. For the last 11 years my sister and I have been to many restaurants on different Greek Islands and the food here is without doubt one of the best. The family are very friendly and actually look as if they enjoy what they do. There is this amazing ambience in the whole of the village and especially this restaurant which is a sort of happy, laid back with the enjoyment of just being there, that I cant really put into proper words.After going to other restaurants we realised that we wanted to go back to the Arolithos, so we went another twice, once being our last night and had more fabulous food. There was another restaurant that we really liked and one that we ended up going to lunch to nearly every day , but that's another story. P.S. My sister said that of all the Moussakas that she has had theirs is one of the best. We are hoping to go back to Georgioupolis next year and will definitely be going to the Arolithos. Thank you to all the staff for making us so welcome.
As a by-line I would like to add that this restaurant is between mid range and fine dining, a bit of both.

The Cotton Club

Reviewed By David M

This was top of the restaurant list in Trip Advisor but I think this is more about the restaurant list including bars liked. It's more of a brits home from home...e.g. john smiths (shudder), guinness and carlsberg with the greek beers and cocktails etc. Food choice is a bit limited with breakfast, omelettes, toasted sandwiches, salads and greek starters then mains limited to burgers, some grills and pizzas but no other greek food or fish etc. English/American rock when we there. Really good bar (although we prefer the Angel)

Valentino Taverna

Reviewed By jroddy1

This has become my favourite place to eat in Georgiopoulis. The choices are great and cooked to perfection. The only reason I have scored less than 5 is it gets very busy and the wait can be a little long. Guess that's a price worth paying for the quality of the food.

Reviewed By zzzampano - Berlin, Germany

family owned restaurant with great and moderate priced food. almost all was organic, either produced on their local farm or bought in the area. we really love the grilled feta and their own wine (intense taste though). as a desert wo got something like a freshly made peta filled with Crete cheese and a honey toping - strange an the beginning but got better with every bite. overall really nice there.

Babis Taverna

Reviewed By Licqui2011 - London, United Kingdom

We tried to get into the Babis a few times but it was always too busy. A very good sign so we made a reservation for our last evening in Georgioupolis. We waited nearly 30 minutes to order a drink and a little over 30 mins to order food. Service was polite and friendly but very slow. The food is OK and nice enough but not sure it is any better than quite a few places in the village. Give it a try.

Poseidon Fish Taverna

Reviewed By Uranus99

We have been here in family yesterday night. The taverna is open from 18h00 (practically only for dinner). It is very difficult to find as it is on a very small road. It is not the typical turistic taverna but neither a local one, do not expect something fancy. As per my understanding it works per hotel's recommendations. Still, we enjoyed it a lot. Arriving there they take you to the kitchen and show you the fresh fish of the day. You chose and they grill it on a real grill (not electric). Everything is very tasty and very good quality. Suggest to arrive as early as possible as you risk not finding too much choice of fish. 19h00 was a good time for us. We were 6 persons and the invoice was 220 eur including wine, the dinner was rich. The staff is really friendly. Try the shrimps on grill, we even asked for some more. Sorry i could not take more pictures, i was really occupied eating all the good food.....

The Old Mill

Reviewed By apars0n - Eccles, United Kingdom

Beautifully located taverna, with mountain water streaming all around (they just put a jug under a spring if you want 'tap' water). Completely relaxing and calming eating experience. Sit outside if you can.
Beware if you are an animal lover and order trout, as they will go and fish one out in front of your eyes.
I had the local speciality of Sfakion pitta (with cheese and honey). It was delicious!
Not expensive either, despite the stunning location.
Look out for the huge sturgeon lurking in the stream between the upper and lower tables!
