Reviews of Dakos Taverna in Gournes, Crete
Taverna Dakos Review by Tony (Ireland) - Rating 10/10
Every now and again it is possible to discover a gem of a restaurant in Crete, have a fantastic meal and only return to be disappointed by the second visit.
This was not the case with Dakos taverna on the beach road of Gournes. We couldn't get enough of this place. Fresh sardines, fresh gavros, fresh whitebait, a hugely enthusiatic chef who loves his food and his cooking. The greek salads were perfect, the tsatsiki wonderful and all happening while listening to and smelling the sea. My wife and I met friends there for lunch at 3 o clock one day and ended up having a six hour lunch of fantastic food, great wine, lots of ouzo and very patient and understanding staff. The chef will bring the fish out to you before he cooks it to show you how fresh it is. The prices are so so cheap and, if you want Crete at its best, check this place out. We ate there 4 times and it never failed
