Good quality food, great spot, does cater for the vegetarian and vegan almost by accident, it is all very good there is something for everyone. It is all very well cooked, there is definitely a chef in the kitchen. Lovely atmosphere, do book in advance...or you will not get a table.More

I'm unable to review as obviously we couldn't eat at George's Yard. Disappointing as every review and the photo's of the food looked amazing. It was a lengthly drive for us to visit Matala, so sadly a return was not possible on this trip. I...hope all is well at George's Yard and that we were just unlucky.More

Excellent starters we shared. Main was a little bland and sadly quite disappointing. Pork came with just potatoes and would’ve benefitted with some salad or veg, same with the mousakka. Small portions for the buck but authentic flavours. Staff could spend a little more time...caring about the clients that are there.More

We had shrimps saganaki and feta as starters. Main dish pork and bifteki. The main dish was good but not on our taste, we should have chosen something else. The owners welcome you with smile, they show passion in what they do.

Charming restaurant with delicious and well prepared food. Very friendly service. We visited on a hot day in June. There is only outdoor seating (under a roof) and a fan to cool you down. There is no view to the beach, but the food and...service is definitely worth a visit to this restaurant. Clean toilet facilities.More

Baked Feta cheese with vegetables, tomatoes and capers was the best one in Crete, with rose wine it was so perfect. Be sure to reserve a table, we ate there twice during our stay in Matala, greetings from Riga, Latvia!!!

Just perfect,grilled wild mushrooms in pesto to start,shrimp spaghetti in black garlic,hidden under the 'shell on' shrimp were at least 10 shrimp swimming happily in the sauce ready to be devoured. Lamb special was,well special.free bread with olives and a beautiful chocolate/orange cake at the...end also free of charge. Throw in a half litre of very nice house white wine and a bill of only €38 we walked away with a rather large smile on our faces. Be warned book in advance as very busy but with very attentive service with genuine smiles. We loved it.More

We’ve came in after a long drive and were looking for a place to eat. After looking up the reviews we came here, at first we would have missed the restaurant entirely if it wasn’t for TA’s results we are happy that we didn’t. The...service was great. The girl serving us had her mask on all of the time. The service was very prompt. Ive ordered the chicken, girlfriend took greek and eggplant salad. All three were great. At the end we were served grapes and chocolate. 🙂More

Stuff was unfriendly that we left before even getting seated. Beside that, no corona rules apply to this location: tables close to each other and stuff does not wear masks probably

Excellent place in Matala where you can eat traditional Greek food, that is also changed from the traditional recipes in a really interesting way. The owners are really kind, you will have a really good night if you go here. Emanuele
