Wish we had gone earlier!

Loved this restaurant just wish we had visited a lot earlier than the last day of our holiday. There is nothing not to like about this restaurant, it’s in a great location, not far to walk from Mirthios, where we were staying, the stunning views overlooking the mountains and sea, to all the staff... read more

Everyone I know raves about this place. I've given it three "second chances", but no more. The menu hasn't changed in all the time it's been open (pork in a cream and mushroom sauce, when the temperature is in the high 20s, anyone?), although apparently the cook is attending a cookery course this summer. The last time will be the... More

Thank you for your review and for the time that you spent for it. Of course all the reviews are welcome from us. Different people, different tastes and preferences so It is normal to receive different opinions. It is also understandable if somebody makes bad comments but this review in my opinion is mean. I guess that if the situation... More

We went twice for lunch in this family run taverna during a visit on the southern part of the island. You can drive from the beach and be there in 20 mins, completely peaceful, nice mountain scenery and really beautiful home cooked food. They do a lot of dishes of the day and the food is really comforting and delicious.... More

First impression is breathtaking view and very friendly and welcoming staff. As you sit and wait for food you ordered you can think that nothing is better than this view. But then comes the food and you already know that you're in heaven:) Definately a place to be!

And know what ? The bill is really cheap ! It really deserve to drive for... More

We have been here quite a few times and agree with the other reviews. Just wanted to add something. The Moussaka there is the best I have ever had in Crete. Although still VERY filling, it is lighter, which makes it so much nicer than the other ones you get anywhere else.
