“Lovely friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We had evening meals here on two separate occasions and was very pleased with the welcome, the service and the food (on Crete). It was generally at least more than half full on both occasions and we were very happy with the value for money. There was an unpaved car park opposite with a bit of a ramp getting in, but no problem if you drive slowly.
We would recommend this resto as an alternative to those in the port of Chora Sfakia who all try to kidnap you as you go past!

“good food, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Always busy, with a large percentage of Germans largely due to one of the owners being German. Food very reasonable and good quality plus daily specials

“Worth driving miles for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Babis and Popis has to rank amongst the best tavernas on Crete? We were staying elsewhere in Frangocastello but the eating experience here alone makes me want to go back to Crete very soon. Fabulous tasty freshly cooked food served by wonderfully warm and generous people. What else can I say? Ah yes...the lamb is to die for! Brilliant value for money and a truly heartwarming experience. Go there!
