Great location so close to the sea with very nice service. Much to choose from on the menu and everything we got tasted delicious. The best thing for me was that we could sit outside and so close to the sea.

The food was okay but it felt like a great big eating hall with dozens of tables. Portions very generous though.

We visited this tavern for our very first cretian meal. I ordered snails with vegetables, my husband had moussaka, and it was fine. The waiter who served us was helpful and caring. The tavern has amazing sea view (like most taverns situated on the promenade in Kissamos).

Visited kissamos and while looking for a place to stay for our 4 nights there got talking to the owner of The Cellar - Stelios who directed us to our lovely hotel. We went to eat in his and his wife's Angela taverna on 3 occasions. Enjoyed the food, ambiance and situation next to the sea. Nothing was too much... More

Very touristy - one of the biggest on the seafront and the food is very average (as is the carafe wine!). Nice situation though and friendly.

Stelios Mylonakis and all at the Cellar provide great food and an incredibly warm welcome. My wife and I have just completed a walking week organised by Strata Tours where we have eaten most evenings in the Cellar Tavern. Every evening we had something new and exciting and Stelios was always there to welcome us and introduce the food. This... More
