Compared to the Grameno Taverna, the other restaurants in Paleochora look like snack bars. Proper traditional Cretan food made with vegetables from their own, very extensive, gardens and locally sourced meat. One of the few places in town where you can get Cretan food rather than Euro-Greek cuisine.

This was our second visit to Paleochora and we have often had lunch here as it is a convenient walk from the Grameno beach and the food is excellent. To be fair, we normally have a light lunch so we usually had a Cretan salad for two, but we have occasionally ventured onto main dishes. So - the Cretan salad.... More

How can you possibly make a Greek salad taste a million times better than any other Greek salad ? It doesn't seem possible. Well, go and have lunch in the Grameno and you'll find out. I also had superb lamb chops, braised, not grilled (grilled meat is almost always overcooked in Greece). The taste of lamb was intact, even enhanced... More

We were suggested to go there and, during a six-night staying, we enjoyed their great dishes for three times. Fast, gentle, always with a smile, Manolis and his family share their Cretan specialties in a beautiful open air place, surrounded by flowers and lovely kittens. Dishes are like my Grandma's from Crete. Everything is perfect and served in the proper... More

We found a very high recommendation for this place in the Lonely Planet guide for Crete and basically the expecations were satisfied, although there was a feeling that it could be better. We found "meat meze" an interesting option to order, but in the end it was too much cooked meat (no grill!?), so it might be better to go... More

Having read all the positive comments about this place we were very disappointed. Just another poor quality taverna selling poor quality Greek food that was prepared well in advance. Even the Greek salad was not fresh, but prepared a few hours earlier and stored in a fridge. Greek taverna's should stop competing on price and compete on quality.

Visiting the Grameno taverna I was very glad to find that it is not a main stream tourist taverna which you can find all over the world . The couple who own it (Manos and Spyridoula ) never rest , they always look for new recipes and they pick the herbs , roots etc , mostly by themselves . The... More

We stopped here for a light lunch after walking from Paleochora. We were early but made to feel welcome and we enjoyed our food and coffee. We had never had fennel pie before but we did have it elsewhere on other occasions. This taverna was too far to walk to in the evenings so we never did revisit, and that... More

I advise you to go in this restaurant. We ordered a complete menu with 10/15 different dishes. A menu costs 30 euros for two people.... Go and taste everything....
