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.

Amazing food and service. You go into the kitchen and make your selection from what has just been cooked fresh. You can tell it us good because all the clientele are repeat clients. 40€ for both of us and we ate and drank like royalty. Kalitsounia, kolokithokeftethes and prawns saganaki were heaven!! Very highly recommended away from hustle and bustle... More

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff. We had traditional Greek food and house wine both of which were excellent. The portions were huge. I would definitely come back here and can highly recommend it.

Stopped in at Marko's for our first meal in Crete and received a lovely friendly welcome from the owner. Very chatty with good service and great home cooked food. Worth a visit if your hungry and in the area.

Went there with our son aged 4. There were some toys that our son could play and the personnel were child-friendly and made deal with our son, if he ate most of his food he could have an ice-cream for the house as dessert and my son did ☺ The food was good, its said that is local homemade food...

Great venue and fantastic owner. It's a friendly welcoming place with great food - I would absolutely recommend anyone visiting Stalos to eat at Markos. I struggled through a Cretan salad with wonderful complimentary olive paste and fresh bread. Again if in Crete come hungry!
