We ordered one freddo espresso and fresh orange juice. That cost us around 10 euros !! And this did not include anything else (just two drinks) since sun beds... More

Many things to say like... as soon as you go outside the restaurant a guy pulls you in (almost by force) to show you the day's menu, after we... More

Best place to eat in Knossos, excellent food and a lovely view, very friendly staff and the manager Thomas, made us more than welcome, with a few free beers on our last night in Knossos. Thanks Thomas, hopefully see you again next year.

Perfect location with a beautiful view over the clear sea. Hosts were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was great. Perfect for a relaxing lunch serving fresh traditional Greek food which was excellent! We have been there many times on our stay!

I liked all. Service, food, drinks, atmosphere. Really good salads and fresh orange juice. Taverna Tzo is the best in Kokkini Hani!

Really enjoyed picking my own fish from the cart of fish caught that day. The waiter was hilarious and made us feel at ease. We were not rushed and we felt like we were staying at a friends house.

Recommended to Tzo (pronounced 'Joe') by our the owners of our self-catering apartment, four of us each ordered different dishes and all enjoyed our food enormously. Two dishes are particularly recommended: Dolmades (mincemeat wrapped in wine leaves) and Kalogeros (oven-baked veal, eggplant & feta cheese). The warm, friendly service and the kind, hospitable attention of owner Thomas Kokkinidis ensured a... More

We stopped off here on the way back from Knossos, thinking it would be nice to have a spot of lunch somewhere overlooking the sea. Dom Joly lookalike Thomas served us some beautiful, fresh Greek food that was easily the best meal of our holiday. Lovely, simple food that was absolutely perfect.
