The restaurant is worth a visit if you are fun of mushrooms...otherwise don't... The food was very tasty, a nice variety of mushrooms in various recipes. It is a bit expensive, though worth it since you experience unusual and tasty dishes..

If you're in the area, you must go to this restaurant at least once... It's far beyond any other restaurant we have visited in greece. The food was tasty, unique & surprising, the atmosphere is nice and the chef is lovely (and takes his work seriously). The chef specializes in mushroom dishes (which are very recommended...) - but there are... More

What a surprise to find such a fantastic little restaurant in a mountain village. We enjoyed a brilliant Sunday lunch last week. I had the most amazing mushroom risotto - I am quite a dab hand at risotto and know how much care and attention goes into producing the perfect texture, not too dry or too sticky, a comfort dish...

The most tasty mushroom dishes i have ever eaten, with mushrooms collected or grown by the owner who is a real "connesseur" of the subject. Some recipes are classic like the mushroom risoto but it is so much better than any other mushroom risoto i have ever eaten that it is like another dish altogether. Other recipes are very unique....

Always seeking the local, regional cuisine while on yet another part of our Grand Tour- this time through the Zogorohoria region of northern Greece, a local recommended Kanela & Garyfallo restaurant in the village of Vitsa. The restaurant specialises in mushroom dishes, growing some themselves, but also collecting may from the surrounding mountains. (They also accommodate non mushroom eaters) The... More

Dining at "Cinnamon and Clove" in the picturesque village of Vitsa in the Zagori Mountains in Northwest Greece will rank as one of my most memorable meals anywhere. The food was divine, without question. Vassily Katsoupas raises mushrooms and, in addition to many other selections, serves them in a variety of delectable preparations in his handsome restaurant located in the... More
