Grilled to perfection

This taverna in a lively small square within the Chora serves amazing grilled meats. We ate here on our first night, and then ordered a take away another night. On the first night I had a pork fillet cooked over a fire which was first class. Well seasoned with herbs and not overcooked. The other... read more

Amazing lamp chops and fresh homemade fried potatos. Anyway you can't miss this place because simply the smell of the cooked meat will drive you there! Food was more than excellent !!!

Very bad quality of meat and not nicely grilled. We had lamb chops and pork madallion. The smell and taste of both was awful. I cannot decide which of the 2 dishes was the worst. Do not destroy one of your meals there!! It doesnt worth a penny. It a disgrace for a greek taverna- bbq to serve dishes like... More

Bread and starters were delicious but we were disappointed that when dining at 8.00 pm they had already run out of most of their grilled meat which is the restaurant speciality! Service was quite slow and haphazard. Location is lovely though and the food is reasonably reasonably priced. Recomend eating early if it is the grilled meats that you want.

The starters and bread are good here. Besides this, the mains are pretty average and service is nothing special. Nice location in the square, but there are plenty of better restaurants to visit in Chora.

You go here to get the grilled meats. It is a charming place, and has one of the best dakos salads on the island (Cretan salad, with bread rusks and fresh cheese). They messed up my order a bit, and had to wait a while for it to be done right - but who cares? The food is simple, delicious,... More

We had a mixed meal at this restaurant. The salad and dip was very good but the souvlaki was lacking that hit of flavour and the chicken breast was dry (I forgot to tell them I was a leg man). The potatoes were great. So, good start, missed the finish. The staff were very good and the lemon mousse at... More

O Kritikos is on a pretty little square in the Chora and is a great place for a lazy Folegandros lunch. The food is simple but good, with a nice grill. Service is genuinely friendly. Loved it!

Spacious taverna centrally located in one of Chora's squares. Food is great especially the many grilled options grilled over charcoal - mixed grill on the rotating spit and served from early evening is a speciality. Family taverna for generations - welcoming, friendly, relaxing and great value.
