A lovely simple place for dinning with friends!

It was a Friday evening, on November when we have decided to visit for first time this tavern. We were 8 friends, the ambiance between us very warm and we ordered some Greek tapas to accompany the local wine. All were frech and delicious and the service very good. The chips, the apaki, the... read more

Used to be a frequent client in that little greek taverna but i am afraid that despite the very low prices that this place still has the food is just so bad. Why? Well the answer is they used to cook installer quantities maybe for 50 people per day and now they cook for 100. Thus they precook everything and... More

Yes always people waiting and very busy but is that because of the quality or just because it is cheaper than the others. I believe it is the last one as there is nothing wrong with the food but certainly not the best I had on Crete. Other places serve the same food but more tasty and not that much... More

The quality is always amazing the service and welcome as friendly as ever. We always no matter where we are staying on the island make the extra effort to come as it truly is the best restaurant on the island so fresh and perfectly cooked. We can't wait to return and see you all again xx

Visited this restaurant a few times during our stay. The restaurant is always packed and sometimes there was a queue waiting to go in but that's because the food and drink is fantastic. The restaurant is used by the locals which is always a good sign! It's so cheap as well. 4 people - starters, mains, sides and 2 rounds... More

Used this restaurant a few times during our recent stay in Hersonisos, best food and cheap prices. Staff are lovely and it feels a family run restaurant and a very grecian feel.

We stumbled on this restaurant during an afternoon walk, liked the traditional menu and went back later-it was heaving, with a queue outside, so we went elsewhere. Finally got in early on our last night and it was worth the wait. My husband had rabbit, I had veal, two drinks plus three starters came to €23. Absolute bargain! The veal... More

Awesome, very basic taverna , would probably walk by it, no linen tablecloths, paper but great food for a Meze and plenty of it even if a few of you only add 1 of each as portions very good . Like that you can put what you want on your Meze definitely visit again
