It is the older tavern in the region of Kato Zakros, the building that was built in 1898 and had the name Maria.In 1991 Nikos Perakis and his wife, Tania, undertook the tavern and since then they offer with love and taste to their customers genuine traditional Cretan and Greek cuisine.They give big importance to the quality and to all the materials that they use, taking into consideration always the local production and chastity. The oil is from the olive trees of Nikos, the vegetables from the farmers of region as well as the meet from cattle-breeders of region.Kato ZakrosAs long as the fresh fish, it is daily provided by the captains Manolis, Giorgos and Kostas that is given to us straight from their caiques.In the summertime you can see celebrations for marriages and christenings or other feasts that take place with traditional live music and dance up to the morning. This way is given the possibility to the visitor to know the hospitality and the customs of our place.Here, next to the sea, you will find us ready to serve you from early in the morning to enjoy your breakfast or coffee and as the day rolls we serve you refreshments or fresh juice and for the older people a cold beer or ouzo with chosen titbits.Kato ZakrosWhile you are enjoying the crystal waters under the boiling hot helium we prepare for you the lunch as you wish escorted with abundant wine of your choice.In the afternoon you can enjoy your ice-cream while you enjoy the immense light of the blue sea and in the dinner the west of helium that is magic.

Kato Zakros is one of the best places we visited this time in East Creta.
The road to arrive is very hard but the result is magic.
We want to thanks Nikos for his help and for his sympathy and kindness and we thanks all the staff of Akrogiali too, they manege their work in a very friendly and kind way and we appreciated them very much, we wish them all the best and hope to meet them again in the future.

We had a nice dinner here the service was great very friendly and quick. A nice bottle of Toplou wine plenty of nice food and a lovely atmosphere, people chatting, listening to the sea and looking at the stars.

A busy Taverna with lots of returning customers and the owner took time to chat with his clients which was a nice touch.

When back in lovely Kato Zakros we will always have a meal or two hear.

Go enjoy

Had a late lunch here whilst touring around eastern Crete. Food and service was excellent despite the attention of some persistent wasps! Recommended.
