We stumbled upon this little taverna on the basis of the TripAdvisor review on the way home from Dourakis Winery. It is a small village taverna on a tiny square next to the village church, shaded by big trees and draped with bougainvillea. The food...More

We really enjoyed eating here. When we first arrived we were greeted right away. We felt welcomed every time we went to this restaurant. At this restaurant you'll find traditional greek food for a really great price. Thanks again to the man that served us!...More

We were lucky to stay in Maza for 2 weeks. We travelled to Hania, Rethymno, Frangokastello and other places but we end up enjoying the best of our time seating under the flowered canopy at Costas's taverna and enjoying his wife's Voula never ending meals....More

Really authentic and great greek food. Owners are very nice and if you're lucky there are some locals dancing on the street. Would recommend it to everybody. Can't beat the price as well. 👍

We stayed at Villa Petra just 2 minutes out of Maza and dined almost every day at Costa's. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere just what we wanted. We will surely be back!

This is one of those places you dream of finding on holiday, a local restaurant serving great local food, which welcomes holiday makers and doesn't rip you off. Costas and the family really go out of their way to make your meal memorable.

Having visited the area before we made straight for this Taverna/Cafelonia again. We were not disappointed. No menu, no wine list, just whatever Costa and Voula are cooking for the evening, good quality traditional village food and plenty of it. A BBQ offers alternatives -...More
