    We have heard about Taverna Kalliotzina “Καλλιοτζίνα” not only via Tripadvisor but also by some locals and we were not disappointed. The restaurant actually is not in the center of Koutsouras but just a little bit outside on the the way to Ierapetra. But you cannot miss it. We had a great lunch with Dakos (we love dakos), eggplant salad, and a delicious grilled fish. There were quite a few locals which is always a good sign. The view is just amazing and they even have tables on the beach but with the heat we had prefer some shadow and eating under the trees was a pure delight.

      Thank you for adding this restaurant. I was staiton at Iraklion Air Station 1998-99 in the U.S. Air Force and it was the most memorable part of my life. It brought back a lot of great memories of this fantastic island and the Greek people and Koutsouras-Makrigialos area. My wife and I will be coming in to Koutsouras, not Makrigialos as we would have liked. I wanted to show my wife my beautiful island. I am hoping that more people will see this travel guide and come to East Crete with more visitors in the future.

    This place made our day! Perfect location just on the shore, really friendly staff, and the invitation to enter the kitchen and chose straight from the pots! Too many delicious options!! Ouzo for a start, raki and fresh peanuts as an offer to finish, and the Italian-Greek-English (and some German) speaking charming waiter as a plus to all the excellent food… perfect. Stop over whenever you can!

    The location is excellent since you can eat right by the sea. The staff is very hospitable. The food is excellent, especially the goat with potatoes in the oven. We ate there twice and were both times very satisfied. The only problem is that in August it may be crowded and you may have to wait a while to be seated.

    L’abbiamo vista per caso, un’entrata dalla strada che lasciava intravedere il cortile al aperto con i tavoli e le sedie rustiche. La posizione in riva al mare le donava un’atmosfera magica.
    Cucina di terra e di mare cretese e greca, cibo ottimo. Il servizio purtroppo non era il migliore, il personale non parlava benissimo l’inglese, comunque disponibile.
    Clientela mista, turisti stranieri come noi ma anche (apparentemente) gli habituè locali. Serata animata dalla musica greca dal vivo.

    We were told Kalliotzina is one of the best taverns in the area (along with Cave of the Dragon) and it’s probably true. Great greek salad, great ksygalo (local cheese), good goat meat in the oven with potatoes, all at an excellent location by the sea. Choose goat or lamb meats as they are they only local ones.
