This restaurant is not in the "main" area of Crystal River, but it is worth the few minutes drive to get there. We had the tzaziki and hummus with warm pita bread appetizer which was a large portion for the four of us. The gyros is excellent, and they have a really great dessert selection. The prices are very reasonable... More

Delicious dinner. Our first time at this restaurant and we really enjoyed it. There's something about this quaint but nicely appointed restraurant that has a calming and inviting feel. I had the soup appetizer, and my husband had the salad appetizer. Both were great. Then the entrees we had was the Shrimp and Crab baked pasta with sherry. Um-um good!... More

We had heard that this was a "good" Mediterranean restaurant but it wasn't good, it was GREAT. The wait staff was attentive and explained some of the menu choices that we were unfamiliar with. The soup (a potato and sausage soup) of the day was hot and very flavorful. The lunches were reasonably priced and our lunch was served to... More

Wonderful Mediterranean and Greek food ranging from lamb to chicken to seafood. Great service and comfortable setting. The wine list could be improved, although the retsina was particularly good.

Last time we were here was a year ago. Once again we were plesently delighted. The food was amazing. The service and prices were good. If you are in the area this is a must. The portions are so big so make sure to bring an appetite.

First impression was: This is a nicely decorated, clean establishment. Our waitress was very polite and attentive. They serve a good amount of beer and wine. We tried a... More

Taverna Manos is a little off the beaten path in Crystal River, but easy to find and well worth the drive! The menu was varied and well-presented. I ordered the moussaka, which was served with a petite Greek salad. The salad contained mixed greens that were crisp and fresh, Greek olives, tomatoes and feta. The dressing, served on the side,...

We eat out nearly ever night and have for years. Taverna Manos is THE best choice in Crystal River for evening dinner. The food is exquisite - very - and reasonably priced. Very organic, natural and delicious. A comfortable and cozy dining room. In addition to a Mediterranean and Greek menu, other choices such as the chicken marsala over paste... More
