Best meal of holiday

Brilliant tasty Greek food, best meal I had the whole holiday and great prices. We weren't sure what size the dishes would be and so ordered 8! You don't need that many, the Greek salad fills you up by itself.

This place doesn't look much from the outside but walk past at 9pm and you will see just how popular it is, the queues to get in were phenomenal! We ate there early both times as had a little one with us so luckily avoided the queues, even then at 6pm there was a fair few in. The menu is... More

I have been visiting this village twice a year for the last 7 years plus. This has always been my favourite place to eat and having just spent another 4 evenings here it still is. It has been extended very nicely and you don't have to wait long for a table , but if you do , it's always worth... More

My husband and me love that place, no, also our children do! David and his family are the best hosts you can imagine. The choice of mezedes is huge and always fresh. The service effective and quick. During summer months, that In-Place is always full due to the quality and the low prices as it is traditional for mezedopoleia. We... More

Superb authentic local food. The restaurant specializes in Mezes with a tick list menu to order from we visited 3 times and everything was fantastic from the Salad to the rabbit with tomatoes.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food at best can be described as bland, this place is a restaurant with high turn over so the food has no love in it or taste. We were here 2 years ago and it was better then than now. The calamari batter was white and not even brown or golden... More

This was recommended by a few friends and they were not wrong!!! It's a set meze type menu and we had around 8-9 fantastic dishes with wine and the bill was €29. What more can I say. The owners make a point if talking to everyone- great food, great service, great price. I will defiant toy visit again.

I have been to Crete four times now, and this is by far the best place I have ever been to here. The food was amazing. Delicious Cretan food, meze style. The fresh sardines were my favourite. The saganaki, butter beans and local sausage were also outstanding. Very reasonably priced. A must visit place.

Fresh and tasty food (sea food), familiar atmosphere and reasonable prices. Totally recommended place (could be a bit bigger to fit everyone ;) )
