Description: Excellent taverna run by a lovely family. Good traditional food and very friendly service. We visited twice during our stay, make sure you go on a Saturday evening as they cook some special dishes at the weekend.

We have been several times during our stay in Rapaniana at Alexandros restaurant, a family owned taverna run by Alexandros, his sister and his mum, who will give you a warm welcome. The food is great, a mix of Greek and Cretan specialties, the moussaka and kleftiko are just delicious. This place is a good compromise of high quality food... More

Service was fast, food excellent and tasted freshly cooked. Competatively priced, and we were given free desserts. Its on the main road, but once the sun goes down this is not a busy road. Friendly staff

The family atmosphere is great fun with a very warm welcome. The starters were amazing with delicious feta, however we were quite disappointed by the mains which were overcooked, and the shrimp didn't taste fresh.

Again visted Alexandros and his wonderful family; this place is a little gem and should be visited by more people! If you can get a party of 10 people or so and give him a days notice he will cook special dishes for you from the wood oven; a treat not to be missed! Notta his mother is simply wonderful... More

For good fresh traditional Cretan food I recommend the Assostos Yios Taverna which is run by Alexandros and his family. They are very welcoming and provide a first class service even down to cushions for the chairs. The local wine is very good and not too strong. Alexandros and his family ensure the taverna has a good relaxed atmosphere with... More
