Nice artificial lake with cool animals (ducks, birds, trouts, turtles, dragonflies). Would suggest the »keepers« of the place to clean the lake more often, to better maintain the facilities of the lake surrounding, such a path, benches, houses. It is a really nice place and it is a shame to see it in a state like it is. Parking could... More

The staff wasn't very talkative, which bummed me. Usually they just put the plate down in front of you and walk off straight away. That attitude started changing a bit during the week, but it still wasn't very cozy. The food was okay. It wasn't exactly special, but it was nice. It was the closest restaurant near us, so we've...

At weekends, this will often be very busy, not least by Cretans who enjoy a trip out and Sunday lunch, as well as ' casual visitors' many of whom will be on holiday. For many years we have included a mountains trip which has usually included a fish-farm visit. The father and son team who run this familybusiness both have... More

Stopped en route from monasteries to Gortys and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and standard of food served including Cretan sausage and fried aubergines. Nice setting overlooking fish pools swarming with huge fish gave a nice diversion for the kids. Worth the small detour but watch out for the faded sign in Zaros else you will easily miss the... More

Ate here while staying in the Ida Hotel next door. The food was average and we felt unwelcome, being used to venues where a warm welcome is extended to customers. All the staff appeared to be employees so no family on duty. An interesting place to sit adjacent to the trout farm but we would not eat here again- the... More

Coming from Norway we were eager to try the salmon. Maby we were just unlucky but the fish was grilled too hard and were consequently dry. Dull presentation - just the fish surrounded by boring chips and the everlasting rice. What about laying the fish on a bed of fried local vegetables, drop the rice an chips and make a... More

Votomos Taverna is located in the nice mountain village of Zaros, close to the lake. There is fish farm. It meens you can find fresh fish - salmon and trout - always. The menu also have a large choice of other traditional dishes. When we visited this place there are not many visitors there – just some tables. But service... More
