Quite a comprehensive menu for a tourist taverna. Delicious moussaka, yiouvetsi and beef stifado. Complementary raki and sweet. Super waitress (Maria)

We visited for dinner as a group of four. Service was laid back but attentive. The food was good, particularly the meatball starters, and the calzones were huge (so much so the waiter congratulated me on finishing it!) although slightly lacking in flavour. Portions were often...More

A wonderful Taverna at the beachside in Kalives Crete. Although known for their great pizzas, the owners, Giorgos and Stella, provide some of the best food available along with a friendly Devil may care attitude to whatever anyone might want to get up to. Lots of fun all year round. Come join us!
