Very good alternative to traditional greek food

I am quite fed up with greek food because its all the same and very fat. Always a piece of meat and then some french fries but no vegetables. So this is a very nice alternativ if you want to eat green food. Its all well done - mabye a little less olive oil. Staff is very nice and the... read more

One of our daughters is vegetarian, so we will always look out for good vegetarian food. We thought this place was really imaginative with great combinations of local produce. The menu changes every day so you know each dish is prepared with a lot of care and attention. Being a fan of classic rock music, I loved the music here... More

After 10 days on crete we already knew that being a vegetarian/vegan is pretty difficult on this island. When we came to Paleochora we searched for a veggie restaurant and litteraly had no expectations at all. In the moment we took seats at The Third Eye we were overwhelmed by the atmosphere, our host and particulary the menu with lots... More

We have been eating here for a few days, and have met several non-vegetarians from hotels in the neighborhood who rather want to eat here instead of where they stay. This is one of the few places in Crete which offers a variety of non-Greek food like guacamole, Thai food, baba ganoush etc, and they're good at it. Recommended.

Great service. Very laid back. Sort of forgot us with our litre of free raki! Lovely salad and dips but mains very poor. Every meal looked like it had been cooked earlier in the day and left in a pot. Pasta crisp, Stir fry is meant to be crisp and vibrant not a gloopy mush. Could have been good if... More

As you would expect, a laid-back, hippie ambiance, but really good service and great food. The dishes are mostly available as full or half portions, extremely reasonably priced. I would suggest you try a few half portions as the real struggle here is to decide what not to try. Many of the dishes are spicy, which makes a real change... More

I was thrilled to see posters around for a vegetarian restaurant, however the food was simply "ok". I really think with a bit of effort, they would be full with repeat customers because it's 'something different' from elsewhere in in Paleochora

The "Third eye house salad" was absolutely amazing! Best I ever eat and never had a kind of this salad before in my life. It is a lovely place with very friendly waiters and sweet young cats in the neighbor house at the opposite of the street.

The food was nothing special, neither for the taste, nor for the presentation. I am vegetarian and I always love when, on vacation, I can find a vegetarian restaurant, but his was the biggest disappointment of a whole week in Crete. Furthermore the service was poor: the guy who looked like the owner has been rude and nervous for the... More
