We stayed in Phalassarna for 10 days in 2015 and every single day we ate there. Terrific people and terrific place! Raki is a must try! :) This year we plan to go to Phalassarna and Mathios (now named Sto Plai it looks like) again to refresh our memories! :)

In this place we took a yogurt with honey and baklava for breakfast. The bill was more expensive than in other places in Crete, and the food was not great, but the club is enjoying a good view.

Up on hill overlooking Falassarna beach, the views are stunning. Food and service very good too! We enjoyed everything we ordered and were very pleased with the price (our total bill came to 38 euro for 3 adults including Greek salad, meat dishes, house wine and raki).
