Another must-do taverna. Family run, very good food and friendly service. This is a very busy taverna and there is a queue most nights. Dont miss out, get there early or please wait. The meze choice and price is good. Order a little or a lot. The only problem i could say is that its very cramped, with so many... More

We had two recommendations to come here before we even got to Hersonissos, so we made the walk from Koutouloufari to see what the hype was. We weren't disappointed and actually came back again! We went to many tavernas during our holiday and this was the best we found. The prices and food were perfect! We went early (around 17:30)... More

This restaurant is in a tiny Greek village called Piskopiano and does it proud. It is family-run and fills up very quickly, so try and be there early if you do not have a reservation (opens at 17:00h, closed Sundays). It is frequented by locals and the food reflects that. Prices are very reasonable, so be careful not to order... More

Having discovered David Vegera in June this year I simply had to go back to Crete to taste their food! We went there straight from the airport and were warmly welcomed by Poppy & the boys. As before, the food was delicious, the service outstanding and atmosphere homely. Piskopiano is a beautiful village so make sure to book a hotel... More

We ate here several times whilst staying in Koutouloufari. The food, service and price were excellent. A great selection of dishes were available on an easy to use checklist menu. The portion sizes are good so I'd only order three or four each. It was a really enjoyable experience and felt really authentic. The biggest surprise was the price! You'll... More

Probably the best restaurant we visited during our 2 weeks trip to Crete. The meal was amazing - all we tried was perfect. Especially I would like to recommend cuttlefish - so simple and so briliant! House wine they have not just dry, but also medium dry and even sweet. They have no desserts! Strongly recommend booking in advance. They... More

This is a very simple restaurant in the small village of Piskapiano half way between Old Hersonissos and Koutouloufari. We ate here on the recommendation of our barman at our hotel. We arrived at just before 7pm and despite being October it was clear the restaurant was almost full so we went straight in. You order from a ticklist of... More
