MOUNTAIN TREASURE

We came across this Taverna by accident whilst exploring the Mountains above Malia with two dear friends. We travelled up past the new dam that had only filled up with water this past Winter, you can just see the last few buildings of the village that has been covered by the new reservoir.

Amazing place! It's a real gem. Good point to have nice break on the way lassithi platoe. Owners are very friendly and were deeply touched by personal treatment from them.

Kares speaks fluent English and French and Greek of course (possibly others too), but the food......THE FOOD!!! It is beautiful, tasty, scrumptious.... you name it! If you could give more than 5 stars, this place would get it.

We have chosen to take the steep road to eat something original instead of all the touristic places in the coast. And we were not disappointed at all, the owner is very sympathic and you can have information about the surrounding. Take your time to eat there at a good price.
