We were there for a very late lunch on a Thursday. We both had meatballs with tomato sauce and rice. We were given bread with dried oregano and sea salt; later it aspired that this was part of the cover charge (€1 per person). The food was good, freshly prepared and well seasoned. The toilets were better than average for... More

I'am going to Litsa several years now. Regarding the food, it's like eating at your grandmother. Simple cretan dishes that taste like your mama made them. The place is also gorgeous. It has a stunning view towards the sea, and the route till there is very scenic. Dimitris and Litsa that run the place are very friendly and welcome! You... More

Main of rabbit, meat balls to die for and roasted vegetables everything served beautifully fresh and flavoursome. Choice of wine the Merlot was... More

Wonderful family run restaurant. Food is great, and prices very reasonable . If you are around the mountains and want to grab a bite to eat this is the place to go. The view is really nice looking over the mountains onto the sea!

This taverna is authentic and food is cooked for Cretan people ( not for tourists). We have eaten Rabbit in a beer and orange juice sauce and Cretan meatballs. Tasty and juicy like we love. The lovely owner speaks English and French. Cute handmade items shop. House rosé is nice.

You arrive at the restaurant after a really nice route and so you expect something equally good for food. Luckily "Tis Litsas Ta Kamomata" stands to this level by offering excellent food. Almost all the dishes I have tried there (been there multiple times the last two-three years) are delicious and very well prepared! The family that runs the restaurant... More
