Akuna Matata: Fresh seafood on the grill
Fresh seafood right by the sea...
This place is warm and welcoming, you hear the waves crashing and rolling, accompanied by a mellow reggae sound (mainly Marley & family), while waiter Kostas usually sings along, smiling and running around, bringing a positive vibe to the place. The fish of the day are displayed, and Kostas will stand along and help you make your choice with lots of patience. Your meal will always, always finish by Raki and melon on the house. Prices are very reasonable, but then again, they are reasonable in about every restaurant in Matala.
Do say hello to giorgios and Kostas from Danielle from Belgium!!
Favorite Dish: Kakavvia: typical greek sort of bouillabaise (fish soup): great taste and lovely presentation: you get your fishsoup with a side dish of fish, vegetables and potatoes, which you are supposed to serve into your soup. Price was 7€, very good price/quality
other good dishes: Moussaka (think 4€50), Greek salad: huge proportion, is big enough as a dish in itself and tastes deliciously healthy (think 3€50), and other fish dishes straight from the grill (usually served with fries and vegetables, price between 6 and 9€).

Taverna Sirtaki in Matala: Special atmosphere, interior and exterior :)
This is the typical taverna with a great view on the Matala beach with its special atmosphere. It partly remains u something from the Greek Zorba or so... menu is written in more languages including Russian (what isn't that typical thought). There is a good homemade wine, delicious dishes and cats begging for some piece of meat :)
Favorite Dish: There is a starter u will gain almost when u sit down and it is the bread and olive oil sauce (garlic, herbals etc) and then of course Gyros is the best. :) If u will take it for three or two persons it's cheaper than anywhere else in Matala.
