Visited here twice on our trip to Crete and would probably have visited every night if we could have. The food is unbelievable, so fresh and beautiful and the quality is unreal. Lovely authentic local food in a beautiful setting. Always busy and the service is great. Ridiculously well priced too, large meal for 2 with drinks for less than... More

We had passed this restaurant a few times, and had noted that it was always packed, so we decided to try it. We were not, definitely not, disappointed. Wonderful food, excellent service, great staff and a great atmosphere. It's definitely on our list to return to, when we're next in Piskopiano, and I'd recommend anyone visiting the area to eat...

The taverna itself is unpretentious but the staff are friendly and efficient, the the menu is varied, the food is very good and cheaper than many tavernas in the area.The restaurant is not very large but very popular so arrive early or you may find yourself in a queue.

What more can I say. This is simply one of my favourite restaurants in the world. Please book a flight to Crete now and get there in time for dinner!

We keep coming back to Crete in order to visit this restaurant! Last night of our holidays we paid 12 euros each for a fantastic meal with drinks. Quality does not change and vegetarian options very varied. Love it!

Fantastic food, great value for money, friendly staff and you can see all the food being prepared. After a disappointing meal at the beach front we are here most nights. My only complaint , they are closed on Sunday's

We were on holiday last year for 5 nights. We dinned there 4 nights and we regretted going somewhere else on the 5th night. Best service, best food, best atmosphere!!! If we ever go back we will definitely dine there.

Just like they tell you.....eat where the locals eat. It's easy to see why this place is always full. Small, but charming, very friendly, and absolutely amazing local cuisine. We visited twice - it would've been three times, but one night we couldn't get in. Very reasonable prices too. In fact, you wouldn't even mind paying a few Euros extra,... More

We have eaten at David Vegera's many times and have never been disappointed. OK maybe when we can't get in but you can't blame them!! They are gracious people who serve really, really good food. They are exactly who they advertise themselves to be and they never fail to deliver. I am forever in their debt as they single handedly... More
