Proper Greek Taverna

We were very happy to return to our old favourite. It feels so much more authentic than some of the town venues - and the biggest plus from our perspective was that the portion sizes are NORMAL! It's the only place where we actually managed to finish our meals - which was a relief! The owner and... read more

Authentic looking taverna but with limited choice. It used to be the norm for the waiter to take you to the kitchen & show you what he had, but these places are now rare, especially in tourist areas. The very limited choice was nice however & at a nice price. Friendly staff.

Wonderful home cooked food, prepared by the owner who loves to show customers what he has prepared. Need to arrive early as the taverna is very popular.

2 mins walk from the beach and just back from the shopping area plus parking very close. Excellent food and definitely a bonus that you can view several dishes before ordering. This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise as being a non-meat eater and quite particular about what I eat I was initially hesitant. The lady proprietor is very pleasant... More

We dined here three times in 10 days as we loved the food so much. As well as a menu there are also daily dishes and the waitress takes you to the serving area so that you can see the cooked food and make your choice. This was the best Stifado I had on Crete.

Sorry paradise but you must have a different chef now. Your lamb kleftico used to be lovely, but visiting this year we were disappointed. Also not such good value.

Having walked past one afternoon and smelling the delicious aroma's emanating from the kitchen combined with the lovely setting we just had to try this taverna. We booked a table for that evening and we certainly weren't disappointed as we had the perfect... More

The food was delicious. It took some time as we arrived a little late but when we got the food it was delicious. I just wished to have more but if I would I would leave the restaurant 100 kg:s heavier... Anyways we loved the food.
