We ate meatballs with cheese and a mixed plate with cretan dishes. It was really good and the portions were reasonable. For the end we've got a complimentary mini homemade... More

My husband and I stayed in the Pella apartments for 10 days in October. We ate at the Pella on numerous occasions and could not fault any of the meals we had . Lovely friendly people/ service with great sea views. Super place to relax

Me and my other half ate here everyday for the duration of our stay, and I can honestly say every meal we had was brilliant. Eleni and stavros and all the family are excellent hosts, with attentive and friendly service and always stop by for a chat about your day. Back to food, everything we had was beautiful, the portions... More

With a fantastic view of the island of Dia it's a pleasure to sit out the front of the restaurant. Food and drinks ordered and we are more... More

We had an excellent experience at the Pella. We tried other places around Crete but the food here was second to none. I would recommend the Lamb and Pork chops. Elena and Dimitri could not do enough for us. Also Stavros who like Elena worked tirelessly to make our stay worthwhile. An excellent place to eat with a large varied... More
