Love this place and have visited it several times during the day over the past few years and always enjoyed looking at what can only be described as the art of the place. Eaten there numerous times and always had excellent authentic Greek food. This time we visited on an evening and it did not fail. As always, excellent food and the atmosphere there on a night is marvellous

Psaros

Reviewed By lgd23 - cheshire

Called in late afternoon when it was very quiet but most of the seaside tables were booked for later arrivals.
Service was very good. We shared the cod in tempura batter,sardines and a half Greek salad. Absolutely delicious. Finished with a complimentary melon and grapes.
Very enjoyable late afternoon by the sea.

Lagos Taverna

Reviewed By snellbydate - Essex

You will need to book on a Saturday or Sunday.The food is all made by the owner's mother and is really delicious.Try the cheese pies or stuffed pepper.The beef stifado and rabbit stifado are fantastic.Free raki and dessert and all at a very reasonable price.You will sit under the shady vines and flowers for the setting.

Gavalianos Kafenes

Reviewed By B M - Nottingham, United Kingdom

This taverna, just behind the war memorial, seems to be the centre of the community in the village of Gavalochori, a village of about 600 permanent residents, just 3km inland from the coastal resort of Almyrida.
Varied menu, good food, good house wine, good service and a very pleasant outdoor garden dining area with plenty of shade. Recommended! (& a much better standard than what's on offer in many restaurants in the coastal resorts!).

Mythos Taverna

Reviewed By PuddyCat99 - Holmfirth

We were looking forward to eating here, as the restaurant was highly rated on trip advisor. What a disappointment. The courgette fritters to start were fine. The beef stifado was poor; served on a pile of under-cooked chips ( I would have preferred Greek oven roasted potatoes but wasn't given a choice), the sauce, which should have been rich and tomato flavoured was thin , watery and lacked in flavour. Overall , a very unappetising plate of food. Not sure how it earned its high rating.

Icarus

Reviewed By wpdesousa-mauk - Cape Cod, MA

We stayed in Gavalochori, just up the hill from Almyrida, a popular beach town. The main street is backed by many tavernas and restaurants. We were fortunate that someone told us about Icarus. It certainly exceeded his recommendation!
Godan was the primary person working tables and front of house. He was friendly and helpful in recommending food to us (and we ate there quite a few times). Great ice cold beer, tables directly on a deck on the beach and amazing food! Everything we ate there was fantastic — Greek salad, youvetsi, meatballs, lamb sealed in parchment, bean purée, house platter, loukaniko, all amazing and delicious.
Prices were quite reasonable for such terrific food and the beer was delicious and always ICE cold! Also, lounges on the beach for dining patrons was a nice perk!
I am happy to wholeheartedly recommend Icarus Taverna as likely being one of — if not THE — top taverna in Almyrida!

Una faccia Una razza

"Una faccia una razza" risto-bar is a small corner of Italy in Crete. It is run by a young Italian couple, Giulia and Matteo, who will make sure you have enjoyable moments in a cosy and friendly atmosphere, savoring authentic Italian dishes or simply sipping a good glass of Italian wine. The specialty is fresh homemade pasta, made according to traditional Italian recipes and served with wholesome sauces, which are made daily. On the "Specials" board, which changes every day, you can choose among delicious pasta dishes, Italian style meat dishes, risottos and mouth-watering homemade desserts. All dishes are prepared and cooked upon order, using high-quality Italian products, therefore maintaining the real Italian cooking style. A perfect change from Greek food!

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we were well taken care of and well fed. The waitress took the time to explain all the daily specials in details. Everything we ordered was simply delicious. The tiramisu we had for dessert was particularly tasty and in retrospect, we should have shared one given how large it was. The restaurant is located past the main square if you're coming from Almyrida. It's on the main road but it's quite cosy given there is not much traffic (at least when we were there). If you're staying in the Plaka area and are in the mood for great Italian food, definitely try this place. Highly, highly recommended for the great food and service.

Il Forno

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!

Reviewed By Dominika M - Waterford, Ireland

We enjoyed the food in this place, especially the II Forno salad which is absolutely huge, so if you're having it as a starter, make sure you know it's big enough for two people. The menu has pictures of the meals which was quite funny as it came handy for my husband who was generally put out by the fact that Cretan menus have such small description (eg. rabbit in the oven, lamb in red wine- and that's it!), so it was helpful for him :)

Harokopos Tavern

If you are looking for a true insight into Cretan food, then you should really must visit our traditional "HAROKOPOS" taverna located on the main square of Plaka village. just two kilometers from Almyrida.We are open all year round. Our family taverna provides a true experience of local cuisine with all our family involvement.The igredients we use in cooking our specialties are from the region. Some of our specialties are made with fresh vegetables from our garden and meat from our small farm.Our chef, Mrs Argyro, cooks every day a new delicious plate.

Dimitris Taverna

The tavern DIMITRIS is operating since 1984 near the first beach entering Almirida .In 2008 we were moved few meters further on the main Almirida's road in a larger space with spacious parking lot. Our cuisine preserves the tradition offering to our guests the favorite quality and flavors. With our steady values in the traditional greek cuisine, we offer meat from our farm and every day fresh seafood. We also use our own olive oil and all our roasts are grilled.Our pleasure is your satisfaction!

Reviewed By LargelyMonk - Banstead, United Kingdom

We arrived late and were served straight away and had a very good meal with friendly service and the usual free raki and cake. Its one of a number of beach front tavernas without anything particular to recommend it except the rabbit.
