Best restaurant in Crete

Excellent authentic Cretan food - good value, perfectly cooked fare. The seafood is particularly good and the desserts are classy - the house wines are absolutely fine too - well worth the price of a taxi to pay a visit, whether you are staying in Hersonissos or Stalis etc. Mum cooks, Dad catches... read more

We were highly impressed with the variety of fresh fish on offer cooked by the 'mama'. We really enjoyed the daily special dogfish which was baked in the oven. The restaurant also commands a great view of the small intersection next to it for 'people watching'.

The hospitality at this restaurant is superb. The food is great and I'd highly recommend the fish platter. It's a must go to restaurant

Ate at this restaurant twice, on my first night of holiday. I ordered sardines, very nice but was covered with massive amounts of salt, so much so that I couldn't eat it. Everyone else's meals was fine. Decided to give it another go on our last night, wish I hadn't! I had lamb, probably not a good choice in a... More

I had been recommended this site and reluctantly gave it a try as it is not the prettiest restaurant in the village. We were a table of 8 and we all had fab meals. We had 3 sea bass which was 'catch of the day' by the father and they were truly tasty. Another 2 other fish which were also... More

Dad catches the fish, Mum cooks it and daughter and son are waiters! - not a great choice of fish - depends on the catch of the day. Service is excellent as is the food. As with all fish restaurants nowadays... a little pricey.

We went here as a family of 4, I asked for a certain dish and the waitress advised me against this told me there was something better which I thought was odd but hay ho. Food was OK waitress friendly enough until we asked for the bill where she tried to guilt trip us because my children didn't eat all... More
