We walked into this resto by pure coincidence and boy are we ever glad we did! I had the tzatziki dip and the grilled lamb and hubby had the grilled octopus preceded by the mushroom. A liter of the very good white housewine kept us nice and happy. First off, the two wait staff, Clement and Catarina were just lovely...... More

Vangeli prepared some wonderful dishes for us. They were all delicious. The most tender succulent octopus and calamari. The best Cretan Greek salad and absolutely the best fava I had while in Crete. The views were spectacular. It is a great experience overall and I highly recommend lunch or dinner. Get the table overlooking the sea for the best and... More

Back again with the boys who know good food. Had a fabulous meal. Freshly grilled fish,green salad,chicken nuggets and a Carbonara for the boys, calamari and not to forget the best Hellenic beer Mythos. Thank you once again Vangeli and the two waitresses which were quick and very friendly. Great afternoon

Went there with friends and our kids. The owner was wonderful and took good care of us. We are all vegetarian and we had plenty of options. Strongly recommend.

Invited to Fanari for lunch over the weekend. Three couples with 6 kids. They were not very busy because, I guess it is out of season. The tavern is very child friendly. The food was great as usual. We order a whole lot of platters which we all shared.The kids had spaghetti with mince. I really enjoyed the pork stew... More
