Description: Situated directly on the beach, our taverna "Pelagos" awaits you and welcomes you. Our guests can enjoy Cretan home-made specialties that we prepare with great care while enjoying the view of the Libyan Sea. Our cooking is based on Cretan traditional flavors…a few of the dishes we serve are local meat dishes either grilled or cooked in our special wood-lit oven. Also rice-stuffed onions, chicken in wine sauce, squid with fennel, cheese pies, pies filled with wild greens, snail dishes, goat’s meat with artichokes, octopus with green peppers…and many other amazing dishes. You will also find fresh fish cooked in a variety of ways. All dishes are cooked with virgin olive oil of our own produce, accompanied by our home-made bread baked in our fire-lit oven. Also enjoy bottled wines or wines we produce ourselves, or our own raki. For dessert we recommend orange cake, walnut cake or fruit preserves that we prepare ourselves. Taste this big array of delicious and authentic traditional dishes in a warm and friendly environment. Let ‘s not forget : "Cretan cuisine means longevity"! (We are open from MAY to OCTOBER)

A very lovely taverna at the beach with delicious food, you must try octopus in red vine, this is one of the best octopus dishes I had! Try also a plate of mixed greek appetizers.
Also, the prices are not high like in some other crowdy places in Crete, so you'll enjoy as we did twice!

This restaurant has a great setting right on the beach. What's on offer is honest and very well cooked Cretan and other Greek food. In addition to what's on the regular menu, they always have daily specials, which I can only recommend, The service is great and very attentive. We've been coming here for many years and have never regretted it.

We discovered this taverna and kept coming until the end of the holidays. The waiters are amazingly nice and helpful, very welcoming, and the live traditional music on tuesdays were great. The cooking is delicate, traditional and well prepared. We strongly recommend to come relax and have a great dinner there!
