Great steaks

This port view restaurant has had a recent make over, and it's a great place if you love steaks! They specialise in meat, so beef steaks and ribs being the most popular. Like all restaurants in the village steak is a bit more expensive than other dishes, but her it is worth every Euro! Service... read more

Situated well in the harbor. Friendly staff . The bigger entourage may have to wait for food. A restaurant worth trying,

Been there twice over the last year. It's a restaurant next to the ferry pier that specializes in grilled meats (fillet & rib-eye steaks, ribs). Rib-eye was good in size and quality although not outstanding. Nicely dressed with rosemary and sea-salt and grilled to order (medium). Greek chefs tend to overdo steaks but no such complaint here. If you plan... More

Pork ribs with ouzo sauce... Very nice! Sometimes it's crowded so the service isn't that fast. But the owners and the workers are always kind and they understand the kids.

Cape Crocodile has its name from the view to a mountainrock, looking like a crocodile in profile. The same view has all other restaurants and cafe's on the harborfront. It's a wonderful view over the Lybian Sea. Cape Crocodile is primarily used as a cafe in the daytime, and as a restaurant in the evening. As a cafe it is... More

After visiting Paleochora three times I cant believe I never found this Restaurant before. Absolutely first class.It's not always easy to get a good steak in Crete but here it was cooked to perfection Exactly as I ordered it.The wine was vintage ( Not Greek). The staff and the service were all 5* I cant wait to visit again
