Any and all the food was excellent including the wine selection. I have traveled a good deal and I just want to say always get the special for the day. You cannot go wrong.

The setting is beautiful and the food is good - simple fare using fresh local produce. Some of the items are not typically Cretan but I guess that this so as to cater for children.

This restaurant is part of the traditional eco-tourism hotel of Elaonas and is a really great place to have a meal. The setting is fantastic as it is just outside the village of Zaros. The owners were great and kid friendly and the food was what you want when you visit a place like this; fresh, locally sourced and creative.... More

So good that we didn't venture further afield. Fresh locally sourced or grown produce, home-cooking & just enough variety to keep things interesting. The artichoke dish, the meatballs & the moussakas deserve a special mention. The complimentary raki is of good quality & the wine list very respectable! Longer than a week here can be dangerous.

For the real-food lovers, this is a must, if you are in the neighborhood. Ask for owner's local cheese. Price is very good.

A very cosy place, we were sitting next to an open fire place in the evening that warmed our tired legs after hiking. The service is spledid and very personal. So friendly people all over Crete, but here they topped it. Menu recommendation - the days special!

Authentic Cretan food, high quality, ingredients highly fresh, with a very sweet welcome from Mado. We had the mezze, and in particular the fried mushrooms were amazing, we're still enjoying the memory ;) A very nice way to discover local cuisine with high quality standard.

A very good taverna. Along with Limni at the nearby lake, it was by far the best we tried in Zaros. Good value, with excellent food, excellent service and a lovely ambience.
