Probably one of the best meals I had in Crete. At Litsas recommendation I tried the goat which is a first for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu is limited but that's normal here and to me it just means more attention to the meals. The food is fresh, tasty and time just seem to stand still while... More

Love this taverna and the family who run it. Whilst the menu appears limited We have tried all the main dishes on it this year and have never been disappointed . Real home cooked food served with passion and pride. Litsa is delightful and we are always warmly welcomed hence we have returned numerous times with family, friends from England... More

This is a family taverna in Afrata a village about 4 kms from Kolymbari. This is good basic local food if a bit rough and ready. One had the pork and one had the slow cooked goat and both were very acceptable. We paid €13 for a taxi there from Kolymbari and the same on the way back so that... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews here and were not disappointed. A lovely family run place with authentic Cretan food. The octopus starter, meatballs and homemade wine were the highlights for us. We were staying at the avra hotel in kolymbari but were more than happy to pay the 14 euro each way taxi fare to get here.... More

I've eaten here twice now this week, and it's by far the better place to eat in the village. I'm house-sitting for friends who have a house locally, on the road down to the beach (which also has a delightful taverna) and they & their neighbour both recommended it over its competitor adjacent. Both places overlook the platea, so make... More

Following trip advisor recommendations we found this restaurant and have now enjoyed several visits. While the menu is limited the food is genuinely traditional, home cooked and the service is pleasant and efficient. We are fortunate to be spending over 4 months in Crete and therefore can vouch for the value and quality of this family restaurant -best meat balls... More

This is meant also as a personal greeting and at the same time a review. Personal because we did not get the chance to come back as we promised. We wanted to say goodbye. We did not want you to think that was because we did not love your restaurant, because we did. And we hope you will keep up... More

Ta Listsas was recommended by expat friends who eat regularly at the restaurant. The things they highlighted were the quality of the food and the warmth of the welcome by Lista and her husband. My wife and I had lunch and dinner there and I can vouch for the fantastic food, the great views and Lista's welcome. The family work... More

Litsa has elevated "traditional home cooking" to an art form in which mere words do not do it justice! However, I shall try. If you are visiting the Prefecture of Chania, you absolutely must visit this lovely family-run restaurant. Afrata is located in Kolimbari, a 30 minute drive from downtown Chania (new highway). The road to Afrata is a stunning... More
