The family run TAVERNA PELAGOS is one of my favorites in Kalamaki.
Here you will experience the warm hospitality of Maria & Manousos and the whole team, which is so typical for Crete and although the taverna is relatively large, it has a very comfortable character, which results from the different seating areas. From the upper areas you can overlook the beach and the coast, from here you can see a beautiful sunset.
The small area on street level is sheltered from the wind, so you can taste the local dishes even on stormy days. In the Pelagos, the dishes are prepared according to original Cretan recipes, all with local products such as pure olive oil, lamb and pork, fresh fish, feta cheese and spices from the country. Many dishes are prepared in the wood oven and there is fresh fish.
Since the taverna Pelagos is located on the right part of the beach, it is much quieter and more relaxed here than on the main promenade and you can also have breakfast in the small bar under the taverna. They serve omelets, fresh juices and of course a refreshing Freddo.
Taverna Pelagos also has a small stretch of beach with loungers, parasols and a shower
