After a long and tortuous road you stop and there's nothing else than the taverna and the sea. Locals identified it a a great beach spot and use the taverna for lunch with an extended family and friends gathering. Evenings are quieter but still with the cats, (not always very civilized). We had a room on the 1st floor with... More

Most reviews wax lyrical about the proximity of the sea, the views from the rooms and of course the food, but they miss describing why come here and what is the spirit of not just the taverna but this wild south facing coastline with the backdrop of a huge mountain. This is another Crete, I suggest not to be missed,... More

The rooms are so clean and the view is to die for. We ended up staying here for the whole day. With traditional greek food, fresh produce. The staff and crew... More

We drove around Crete and slept in another place every night. Found this place by chance and as the road did not go any further, we decided to overnight here before we return to our tour. Luckily one of the 4 rooms was free! It was absolutely fabulous: the room, the view from the room, the place itself, and the... More

It the perfect place to visit if you want to feel the magic energy of South Crete. Enjoy your meal next to the greek blue sea. Everything is fresh!!! And why not, if you are lucky maybe you can rent a room in the picturesque rooms of this family taverna.

Came across this restaurant after driving down a winding road to a beach made up of mostly stones........... glad we made the effort as the restaurant was superb........ excellent food and the sort of service you get from a family run business...... well worth the trouble to get there . Would I go back...... yes I would

Seriously, I'm begging you... don't go there. If you do, you'll tell all your friends and then I'll never be able to get a table again. Agia Fotia Taverna is feast for all the senses....a vision of blue against the even bluer libyan sea... the scent of the freshest fish in the world sizzling in the pan... the sounds of... More
