Stopped by for a restroom break and a coffee, and ended up having amazing food, incredibly personalized service, and yes, experienced the cleanest and most well stocked bathrooms ever. The food was so delicious, fresh, and home made that we ate until we couldn't eat anymore. Afterwards we enjoyed home made raki and the kids were encouraged to forego their... More

This evening we visited the Eva Taverna and were blown away by the food. We shared the vegetarian meze (the vine leaves are delicious). The owner, named Yiannis, was incredibly accommodating and even went out of his way to drive us back to our hotel after our meal. We would recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again on our... More

This place is excellent! We went back having eaten there earlier in our stay not only because of the lovely food but also because of the attentiveness, customer care and genuine interest shown to all his customers by Yani, the host. Set on the corner it would be easy to overlook this place but step inside to sit amongst the... More

We woke up too late for breakfast, and just thought to lookup one of our pre-selected restaurants for lunch ;-). Came across this family run place with an extremely friendly cook/waiter. Great food, good value and on top of that gave us tips regarding places to visit. Worth it!

We chose Eva Taverna because it was the top rated restaurant in Malia and it did not disappoint. Even though it's not in the centre, it's well worth the walk. The service was very warm and welcoming, and the meal was one of the best we've had in Crete. Per our server's recommendation we split the Greek plate for one... More

We found the food to be of the highest standard and simply delicious. We dined beneath the canopy of mulberry trees, with lots of lit lanterns, it was beautiful. The owner Yiannos was dedicated to delivering superb service, extremely hardworking, and a genuinely lovely man. The bathroom was out of this world! Impeccably clean, automatic lights came on, and the... More
