Well worth taking a trip here as the views, service and food are fantastic. Really high quality homemade food for a great price. Many thanks to Maria and her Mum for a brilliant taste of Crete.

We went here and had the pork, chicken and lamb of the specials board, each had it's own uniqueness of flavours, the service was very good with a smile and friendlness that is sadly missing from so many more commercial restaurants. The view are spectacular, especially at sunset. The road to the restaurant has plenty of surprises, don't look down lol. We will be back , thank you

This place is wonderful,the setting is out of this world,the food is simply delicious and Maria and her mother are the loveliest kind and genuine people you could ever wish to meet.We got a taxi from platanes to Maroulas,then walked back down a country trail after our meal.So sorry we only had time to go twice during our weeks holiday,if we go back to Crete,then this restaurant is top of our wish list.....Thank you Maria and Theadora....Hope you have a very successfull season,you deserve it.x

After reading all the wonderful revues , could thavma live up to expectations? We'll the simple answer is big YES! Not only did it live up to expectations it surpassed them. Maria and her dad made you feel like you weren't visiting a restaurant but returning to see a long lost friends, they are genuine nice people. The food , the view the ambiance everything about the place has a kind magical feeling about it, though not the easiest place to find it is well wort the effort to reach there, thanks for a wonderfully evening.
