We had a fantastic lunch with a great view on Matala beach and the coves of Matala. Very good and tasty food, prices are not expensive and the staff is very friendly. Our first, but not last visit of this fantastic tavern.

The gyros plate was very tasty. The portion was unfortunately a bit small. The view was phenomenal. Highly recommended for couples as it is very romantic. You got delicious grapes and raki for dessert.

We had another restaurnat in mind when visiting Matala, but with that closed we wandered about the many other options before heading in to Alexis Zorbas. It was relatively busy and we had a 5 minute wait for a table at about 9:30pm after the...sunset, so had a quick stroll on the beach. On our return we were given a table upstairs away from the beach, but still with a great view of the colourfull sky. No photos for you I'm afraid as we'd have been photographing people having their meals to get one, but the memory of it will be reatined for years to come. We didn't have a huge meal; tzatziki, garlic bread, baked feta, fried corgettes, a kebab (which was actually 3 and was great!) , and a pizza. With the excpetion of the pizza it was all lovely, and the pizza still disappeared despite not getting a resounding "best ever" from the recipient. There are lots of places to try in Matala, but I would have no issue in recommending here as it kept all the ambience of the area without having a band playing loudly and in you face as you dine.More

The pizza is frozen and they add a few more vegetables on it. Soup made of powder. Lemonade is actually lemon fanta juice.

Spent a great night here with my mom. Good price/quality food; you can choose f from both Greek and other cuisines. The view is wonderful and the hosts are really nice and sweet. Nothing more to wish for :-)

Had the gyros. Was a little greasy but overall tasted nice. Was a decent price however the wait time was long. A staff member did come over and apologise though as they were busy which was nice.

One of the best views of the sunset, the food is great, lots of fresh daily options (mussels were melting in the mouth, so was the massive lamb “skewer”) and the waiter super helpful and friendly!

First impression was quite good due to the panorama and landscape visible from the terrace. Unfortunately food quality is super bad, frozen squid, small quantity , minimalist presentation but excessive price. I don’t recommend this place at all, I’m pretty sure you could fine a...better place even if the food was prepared on a car park.More

Chosen by chance among the restaurants overlooking the sea we ate very good fish (octopus, squid and grilled fish really memorable) with a splendid view and at an honest price. In addition, the service is really kind and helpful; if I get the chance I'll...definitely be back!More

I want to leave a thank you words here, because we had a good time on this taverna's terrasse. Their Rabbit Stifado was so good! The service was fast. The view was great! On more gastronomic destination on Crete. 👍
