My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant after stumbling across it a few days before and boy am I glad that we visited. The two most adorable young boys, yes they did appear tired and a little reluctant but I think the father has plans to keep it in the family and was teaching the boys the trade. I had... More

We had lunch here one day and the food was very good. It is a typical traditional Greek taverna with quite an extensive menu. Portions are good size and reasonably priced. I would recommend it.

Dinner was gorgeous, the lad and his sons who run the place were fantastic and very friendly. Lovely wee restaurant at the start of the Malia Old Town. Enjoyed the Ouzo at the end! Really nice experience and well enjoyed. Trip advisor rating doesn't do it justice, lack of recent reviews perhaps??

Stumbled on this jem after a walk around the old town. We have fish & chips. Greek style. Which was a oven cooked sea bass & real chips. €10.50 the drinks were average. We were served by the restaurant's owners son who was very polite.

This restaurant is located at the very edge where the old town meets the new, but appeared to be a traditional Greek restaurant. I knew from the moment we were seated, that we had made a bad decision. The place seemed to be family ran, with three generations there. We were served by one of the children (two young boys...

We were served by a young lad who didn't really have a clue. The food was not great, and not hot, and it was not good value for money
