Lovely restaurant, nice service. We had the chicken and pork souvlaki which were delicious and very well served! Amazing price, with drinks we paid 18euros! The best we went in Falassarna. There are signs to indicate the location.

We were recommended this tavern by a german guest in the hotel. You drive through the fields (not literally) and between greenhouses to find it. There is seating inside or in the garden. The tables have linen tablecloths and the seats have cushions - very welcome. The service was excellent and so was the food. I had souvlakia which was the best I have ever had. I didn't know you could keep pork so moist yet perfectly cooked. The food and wine were superior to any other in Falassarna yet the price was less than average for the area.

I had lunch with my family ( three people) on a very windy day, stopped there by chance without reading any review.
Excellent Greek salad ( big portion), chicken souvlaki with real chips ( not frozen) and grilled tomatoes,homemade stuffed tomatoes Greek style
( gemista') with a stuffed zucchini flower, red water melon as a dessert, espresso ( good), complimentary icecream. Everything fresh and well served.
Nice view on a beautiful garden.
Total price Euro 32.
What can you ask for more?

We found this little taverna from Tripadvisor reviews, we are staying nearby and wanted somewhere for good food and a beautiful view, this provided both!

You wind down little lanes through the agricultural plain above Falasarna beach and there is parking opposite the taverna. The gardens here are lovingly tended and you can choose to sit in the garden, on an open patio area, or inside. As the sun sets over the sea (bring a camera) you can see the garden light up with candles, lanterns and atmospheric lighting. A lovely setting for a meal.

There is an area for swings and a hammock, our children are grown but our 23 year old daughter still tried them out! Children would enjoy the gardens here.

All the food ordered was excellent but special mention goes to the pork with orange and honey, so good that those who didn't order it plan to go back again so they can try it! We only have one more night in Crete so we need to be sure we arrange that our day ends at this taverna! The local red wine was beautiful, full of summer fruit flavour, not too dry nor too heavy, very easy to drink do beware if you are driving. Oh, and this was the best boureki I had in 12 days in crete (as a vegetarian I have eaten a few boureki meals!).

Service was very welcoming, efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend this as a lovely place to eat if you are visiting the area. The view is a bonus, the food and the atmosphere is first class. You can see that this is somewhere that a great deal of care and love has been invested.
