The tavern "Kavouria" (crabs) is very picturesque and typical. The boss "Spiros" speaks of course Greek, some English, some German, some French and all that, really, really fast ! Spiros offers fresh fish and seafood, but also Cretan specialties. We recommend the "grilled barbounia (red mullet)". Do not order your meal at the same time as the aperitif, because you will not have finished the aperitif that you will already be ... served :-).

The Kochilia tavern has existed since 1910. It is run by Giorgos and Despina who present their double tavern: Our family settled here in about 1910. Over the last years we have refurbished and modernised our tavern, creating a more comfortable space and maintaining the traditional local character. In winter-time you can sit in a cosy interior with open fire-place and traditional furniture. In summer our big terrace invites everybody to sit at the former port, overlooking the small beach. From here you also have a beautiful view to the far-away mountain villages, to the cliff of Kastella and its magnificent sun-rise, as well as to the island of St. Nicolas with its Minoan remains. At the back of the tavern, we have recently created a separate space where you can have coffees, cakes and ice-creams. In the evening you can enjoy a drink and watch the sun setting over the waves. In the kitchen, for the preparation of our dishes, we use local products, our own olive oil and fresh local fish.
