Very nice staff took me to look in their immaculate kitchens. Had the meal were you could order a number of items as always nice to try even more Greek food! The meal was not quite hot enough but very tasty.

Food was excellent and all home made! And the best bit was that everything didn't come with chips!! A true Greek restaurant rather than something catering for the brits abroad. Get a platter option - GORGEOUS!

Wonderful traditional Greek food,as well as a menu to chose from you can visit the kitchen area and see a huge variety of great Greek dishes. Family run restaurant where the staff are always welcoming and helpful. Probably the best restaurant in and around Stalos plus great value.

Visited Markos in the new location while staying at the Renieris Family Hotel nearby. The food was outstanding, enhanced by the fact that you could take advantage of the old Greek tradition of checking out what was on offer from the kitchen and making your choice from what looked good! The place was absolutely spotless, an important point for us?We... More

We visited this restaurant twice whilst staying at a local hotel. On both occasions we really enjoyed the food and hospitality. You are invited to visit the kitchen if you wish to see the options available. We found the menu provided great choice and portions were generous. We enjoyed the sharing mixed grill, great choice of meat which had been... More

We really enjoyed our first visit here and went back on a second and third occasion. Set back from the road and with ample seating, this family run restaurant offers very good food at a good price. You can order from the menu or visit the kitchen where you'll be shown the oven dishes of the day. There are quite... More

I can confirm that in this tavern you eat very well at a very fair cost. The dishes all prepared by the women of the family with wholesome and tasty products. The starters can be seen and chosen directly by the bank but if you have any special requests you can make them at the time of booking. Staff friendly... More

If you would like proper fresh, wholesome food then Markos is the place to go. From the Renieris hotel it is 79 steps down and next door on the main road. It is worth every penny and every breath to get down and up again. My mom is an amazing cook and I would compare this family fun business to... More

I can honestly say the food here brought a tear to my eye (taking me back to the food critic from the movie Ratatouille as he remembers his mothers comforting cooking.) The staff are so welcoming and friendly and you get a real Cretan experience. We were able to choose from a whole range of home cooked dishes that felt... More

We kept coming back here because we enjoyed ourselves so much. The owner is a friendly, affable guy whose son's toys are available for little kids to play with. You have a great view of the water and the food is great. The beef goulash and the green beans were among our favorites.

Thank Nicole B
