We ate here once during our holiday and had very good food. We had a dish of tzatziki to start which was powerfully garlicky but delicious. I chose the lamb chops and was not disappointed - in other places I've been served dried warmed up greasy offerings, here I got the plumpest juiciest chops, hot from the oven served with... More

A great view on the beach! The food wasn't great, I was really looking forward to a nice stone fired pizza but ended up with more takeaway style which was disappointing (too much rubbery cheese!!) but I reckon their traditional Greek food would have been better. Make sure you let the know if you want dessert otherwise they will assume... More

Thank you for your review. Well I got confused on one hand you say the food wasn't great and on the other hand it's good value. We use top quality ingredients on our pizza and food, if mozzarella is rubbery for you that's your problem and not mine. As for the dessert I don't understand completely what you mean but... More

We came here several times during our holiday, because the menu had the best variety and the kids loved the kittens which roamed the restaurant. Can recommend the mixed fish platter which was the best one we found in Agia Marina. The pasta dishes and calamari were also great. They serve the local Cri Cri beer which is far nicer... More

We stayed in the vicinity of the place so we decided to try it right the first day of our stay in Agia Marina hoping to be a good choice for lunches because of the proximity. It is right on the beach so it comes with the view. The food was not great, not bad. I guess was correct. What... More

Well because of the competition most restaurants offer a big variety of dishes, as your review is not correct. Apparently you didn't take a closer look at our menu. Burgers are included on the kids menu with 8 other dishes so how does that make your children impossible to decide. As for the pizza we are one of the very... More

We ate at the Meltemi restaurant with a party of six plus a baby. The restaurant was nice and cool on a hot day. We had starters and main courses. Everything tasted good and pizza was best that we had on the island. I recommend warmly!

Found Meltemi by chance on our first day in Crete. I'm so glad we did as the food was first rate. I had a mixed maze plate and it was really delicious. The meat was tender and seasoned perfectly. Hubbys burger was huge and not greasy, and my daughter had a pizza which was also lovely. A lot of the... More

We have spent a bit more than a week at the Agia Marina and were travelling to Greece in the past seven years. This Restaurant has been one of the best ever. The food was always fresh and very tasty (although we have only tried the greek meals since we like to eat regional food when we are travelling) and... More

We just left Agia Marina after one week vacation. The lunch at Meltemi every day was highpoints. Everything was fresh and so good. Even our five year old daughter ate with good appetite, and we didnt order childrens menu. The service is warm and perfect. Thanks! Maria, Daniel and Nina.

The service was really excellent and personal. The restaurant is right at the beach and the view is amazing. The food was decent, but with room for improvement.

We was advised to go there, tried, and never left ;) It's hard to understand how you can eat in only one restaurant for a week when you are surrounded by a lot of them ;) But the few we tried for other meals never came close to this. But this mix of excellent service, fantastic food, drinks, view and... More
