We were really happy to find them open at the start of November when so many places close for the season. The food was excellent and a very welcome change from taverna foods with fresh pasta, fillet steak and brilliant burgers. Really will make this...restaurant an addition to our regular visits in the areaMore

Different food items for a change! The homemade ravioli are excellent and even the sushi is not bad. Most of all the staff is nice and it feels like sitting on the street in Mexiko.

I came to Bistronomy for lunch and got a recommendation from the waiter. Fresh made tagliatelle with tuna. And it did not let me down the food was amazing and the taste was just perfect. After my dish I also got some fruit, cake and...a shot (medicine;) If you are in Matala and looking for a good lunch or diner. I would definitely recommend going here.More

Late October is quiet and we were the only customers for lunch. The food was delicious and our waiter, who was probably the owner, was genuinely friendly. Almost all restaurants in Crete are high quality and you certainly can’t go wrong at this place.

The Rogdia salad we hat as a starter was really good and tasty. Both main courses were really good, especially the spicy red Shrimps Saganaki. Excellent. The friendly and observant service team were on the ball.

Clearly we must have be the victims of low season blues. Waiter perfectly polite, table on terrace with lovely views of the beach and cliffs. Shame about the generator noise as background and we just waited and waited, even though the restaurant had 10 guests....Food very mediocre: very limited vegetarian choice for a restaurant that describes itself as Cretan food. the tris of typically Cretan dips was poor and the bread very disappointing and definitely not typical of this amazing island. Chips very soggy and greasy. Burger not worth the price and most definitely not exceptional. I would strongly recommend a more traditional place for real Cretan food. And for any veggies who are not willing to try pasta in Crete….stick to Italy for pasta …or Italian restaurant…not fusion. This a poor melange of all. Staff slow but very polite.More

The food was amazing, for the price too. At last they gave us a thank you gift which was a pie and a shot of their traditional alcohol - Raki.

Best meal in Crete hands down and very best I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy in a month dining throughout the Greek Isles. Seafood Soup, Frutti di MareTagliatelle, Tiramisu…all flavorful, subtly nuanced, hand crafted in-house made-to-order, local and fresh! Michael, a member of the family...team that runs this establishment, served me with warmth and kindness. By the time I left, we were on a first name basis with one other. What I enjoyed most was how consciously the Chef created the offerings: broth not overly salted; home made tagliatelle tender yet still al dente; mussels, salmon, shrimp all succulently fresh; tiramisu melt in your mouth yum mines but not excessively sweet. I paired all with the House Wine which was a Sauvignon Blanc oozing floral rather than citrus back notes. Perfect. I may very well go again tomorrow to try the lamb chops! 5+ StarsMore
