Excellent dinner. If you are ever in Crete you need to try this authentic Cretan food. Everything was so good. An added plus, you can see the sunset which is right in front of the restaurant over looking the ocean.

One of the best tavernas we had in Crete! Really delicious, home-made food with a really nice garden, view and 5 minutes away from Falarsana Beach, which for me is one of the best beaches in Crete. (More than Elafosini!) Their chicken snitzel (8 Euros) is to die for! Really crispy, and it melts in your mouth. Comes with salad... More

Lovely garden. The food is very good and service is ok. Children can play in the backyard. We had free raki at the end with some ice.

I can't remember two finer or more pleasurable meals in Crete, and perhaps Greece, than those my wife and I have just eaten here on two successive nights. We sat on chairs like thrones at a table spread with white napery in the pleasantly planted garden, and felt like a king and queen. The good-humoured service is provided by smartly... More

Went here on the back of Trip Advisor reviews. Glad we did, lovely food - and they accommodated my request for a 'small' Greek salad (although the waiter did look a little bemused). I had the lamb casserole which was so tender and tasty, my partner had the rabbit which he said once he'd got used to the flavour he... More

Nice atmosphere, we went there in the afternoon so it was quiet, and we could enjoy the relaxing garden. The food was fine, the waiters were friendly.

Food ordered was very good. Portions big enough. Service was OK. Prices are in line with the area I would even say smaller than in Paleochora.

Great garden, beautiful sea view, lovely decorations, good food and friendly service. This sums it up for our visit to Vassilis taverna. Getting there might be tricky but there are signs on the road. The location is perfect for both lunch and dinner and should be checked out while in Falassarna.

After our visit to the beach we found this restaurant. It's not very close but it's worth it. Great food, great service, amazing place to sit and enjoy the food. Would go again for sure!

This place is situated in the midddle of nowhere. But inside you will find the most beautiful garden ever. Food is nice and proper done. A small playground for the kids is always appreciated. Credit cards ok. Raki included-if you dare....
