A very nice and modern restaurant on the beach. The food is delicious, a fusion/modern kitchen that uses products from Cretan producers. The food is star-worthy, and the price is lower than you might expect for this quality. We had dinner here twice. Only one small criticism: courses were served very quickly after one another.

We have visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Crete and we were not disappointed. We appreciate the idea of running an upscale restaurant with reasonable prices. Absolutely amazing.

We were staying in Koutsounari and discovered this wonderful restaurant on the beach nearby, which we frequented regularly. It serves international cuisine as well as some local but combines it beautifully and with a twist. We congratulated the chef after one of our dinners and she discussed her dishes with us and and told us she had trained in a... More

Went for dinner and the table placing was on the beach itself. The service was excellent. When I received the bill at the end, I thought there had been a mistake, as the value for everything was surprisingly good. Even if the location and the service were not good, the food would have made up for everything. The cuisine was... More

This place manages to combine a very relaxed vibe, with a perfect location literally on the beach, great service, food with some real chef twists and precise execution AND really good prices for what you get. Just perfect - suggest contrary to Greek dinner practices to actually go there a bit early (just after sunset) as the atmosphere is just... More

Situated directly on the beach, our taverna "Pelagos" awaits you and welcomes you. Our guests can enjoy Cretan home-made specialties that we prepare with great care while enjoying the view of the Libyan Sea. Our cooking is based on Cretan traditional flavors…a few of the dishes we serve are local meat dishes either grilled or cooked in our special wood-lit oven. Also rice-stuffed onions, chicken in wine sauce, squid with fennel, cheese pies, pies filled with wild greens, snail dishes, goat’s meat with artichokes, octopus with green peppers…and many other amazing dishes. You will also find fresh fish cooked in a variety of ways. All dishes are cooked with virgin olive oil of our own produce, accompanied by our home-made bread baked in our fire-lit oven. Also enjoy bottled wines or wines we produce ourselves, or our own raki. For dessert we recommend orange cake, walnut cake or fruit preserves that we prepare ourselves. Taste this big array of delicious and authentic traditional dishes in a warm and friendly environment. Let ‘s not forget : "Cretan cuisine means longevity"! (We are open from MAY to OCTOBER)
