We were recommended to come here, it was truly a great experience, fantastic welcome, great staff, owner is a lovely man and the food was excellent. Cutomer care 100% and extremely attentive. We will definitely be back again. If you visit Panormo make this your number 1 restaurant.

Fantastic greek antipasti, perfect wine selection, outstanding see food (e.g. grilled swordfish with vegetabilisch). Meet Manoli, the best host you can get.

We were there several times during our holiday. Every time the food was excellent, and the staff very friendly. Kastro is the one of the best restaurants in Panormos.

The food was superb and so was the service and hospitality. The owner was genuinely friendly and made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed. This is a perfect example of a traditional Cretan Taverna at it best. We just cannot recommend this Taverna strongly enough.

My hubby and I stayed at the Royal Blue Hotel and was thrilled to find this open as it was chucking it with rain. Lovely dishes, great size, chips like my mother used to make them (delish!)

We've been visiting Crete for over 10 years and this is our favourite place to spend the evening. The meat is all healthily charcoal grilled or slow cooked until it's delicious. The olive oil used is organic from the owners olives. There is enough selection that you can eat here all week and not repeat an order, but you will... More
