We love all these guys here. They are true friends now. Please try and get there to try the food it's so good. Not many people pass the Divina with it being on the edge of Gouves (the army camp side) other family members were staying 30 mins walk away and didn't want to walk so they hopped in a... More

Great food, great prices and portions that will leave you stuffed to the gills. Service is great and the food is presented perfectly too, Alex, Marsel and Spiros all work so hard to make your stay/meal so special...although the copious amounts of free raki may leave you feeling a bit worse for wear next day if not careful. Even if... More

We visited Divina for food last night and it's the best meal of the trip so far. I was recommended the Kleftiko by our friendly and helpful waiter. I pondered my decision whilst the drinks were being brought over and I shouldn't have. It was beautiful! So good that I've found the recipe on BBC Good Food and I hope... More

Stayed at the Divina Apartments for 11 nights and ate at the Taverna for 8 nights. The food was exceptional and very reasonably priced, as was the drinks. Service was good and the staff were very attentive. We did eat elsewhere, but Divina was much better. Definitely would recommend the beef stifado. Can honestly say that each meal we had... More

We have known this family for quite some time. Their friendly and welcoming nature have drawn us back time after time, ( as we are lucky enough to visit the island of Crete 3 times a year) Alex the bar person is always good for a chat about anything and everything! I defy anyone to try and get away from... More
