Nice location out of town. Busy and professional rather lacking the cosy homestyle taverna atmosphere we'd got used to in Crete. Our food was fine but nothing special. Wine...um! Lovely location looking out to sea.

Location is unique. Food very good and service friendly

Lovely location overlooking rocks and sea and set a bit away from main area of bars/restuarants.

Large restaurant for Paleochora and has far and away the biggest number of waiters.

Very slick operation and waiters appeared to be "miked" up to kitchen. To be honest the size and style takes away from the feel of a taverna and whilst this may appeal to some we preferred smaller more traditional places.

This was one of the places where we decided to have main courses only and on two occasions waiters tried to talk us into having starters, not overly pushy but not necessary.

The food was decent, the setting is great, however it just didn't feel like a typical taverna to us.

We walked into Methexis without a reservation around 9pm and were seated right away. We've since learned that as the sun sets earlier, people are eating earlier so there weren't as many choices available to us at that hour. Our waiter went through the list of things they were out of, but like all tabernas there were plenty of choices.

We were lucky enough to get the last pork souvlaki. So moist and tender and delicious! In addition, we ordered the meatballs stuffed with cheese (more like a stuffed grilled burger - outstanding!), Cretan salad with wonderful local (goat) cheese, and onion cake (not our favorite but worth a try). Half carafe of dry house red, and free Raki and watermelon for dessert. Lovely setting, great service, fabulous food.

Just go!
