Lovely Food, Nice People. Unmissable

Firstly, this isn't actually in Kolympari, but in Afrata, a few km up the peninsula. But that's not really important. Five of us ate there early on a Sunday evening. A table was easily found and we were welcomed. It's a simple place, with no pretensions to be anything else. The menu is short... read more

Extremely positive experience in this family-run located in on the marvelous hills of Afrata, about 10 km from Kolymbari. We tasted a selection of Greek starters followed by a plate of roasted goat, all very good and tasteful; the goat in particular was something incredible, very well cooked. Hint: inside the restaurant you can also find a small shop with... More

This family-run restaurant is a ten-minute drive up into the hills from Kolymbari. It is a simple, rustic spot, with a small shop, selling local foods and hand-made decorations. The menu is very limited, and not everything is always available, but the (typical Cretan) food is lovingly prepared, fresh, delicious and inexpensive. Try the goat, the zucchini and potato dish...

First visited in August 2014 following advises of Tripadvisor reviewers (thanks!). It happens that returning to the same place later brings some disappointment. But not in Tis Litsas Ta Kamomata case - food is excellent again and service is very attentive. Onion and spinach pies and tsigariasto (goat/lamb in the oven) are perfect.

At the time of visiting this restaurant it was the number one Trip Advisor ranked restaurant in the area, so on that basis, we tried it. We had eaten at the number two, but it's clear why this is ahead. It was quickly evident why it was number one, and if I could give it a six out of five... More

Very good Cretan food. You have to visit it and try tsigaristo. One of the best on the island. The people are very kind and try to do their best to serve you.
