Vassilis taverna was one of the highlights of our stay in Creta. The place is typical without looking tacky, extremely welcoming and cozy: You can choose between the beautiful garden and the patio where a gentle breeze is constantly blowing. Nice, relaxing chill-out Greek music in the background, spotless tablecloths (not a standard in Creta). The crowd: young couples, families, small parties of friends. The place has something quiet, elegant and beautiful about it.
The food is so good it just can't be described. Pumpkin balls (one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted), chicken souvlaki ( huge, tasty, the best we had in Creta), octopus salad (fresh and tender), lamb... Everything was fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked. Even the house wine was lovely.
Service was beyond perfect: quick, nice and professional. I accidentally dropped my fork and one of the waiters literally ran to bring me a new one in no time. The owner even kindly wrote down a list of Greek musicians for me as I complimented him on the playlist and asked for more infos. They really made us feel special.
Price was surprisingly cheap for so much delicious food, definitely worth a visit if you are in Falassarna.
