All round excellent

Ate here twice in one week, and given the generally high standards of food in this area that is quite an achievement. Service is very pleasant, and the owner seems to take a great deal of pride in look after his guests. The bread starter with assorted accompaniments is the nicest I've had.

This is a very authentic greek restaurant serving a good range of Cretan specialities. Janni is a very good host and all of the staff are pleasant and efficient. I can recommend the liver speciality which was very good and the range of dishes should satisfy all tastes. The setting on the square in front of the church is very... More

We had 3 meals here during our stay in Stalis in September. The food was top class so was the service, the staff were very friendly .we were given some of their olive oil and some oregano as a gift before we came home, a very nice touch.

On leaving that day Jannis came out and gave us each a bag of herbs and told us how to make them at home. A... More

The food here is great and the surroundings are traditional. The roof terrace is particularly nice. The place is family run and the hospitality is great. Nothing is too much trouble.

Excellent food and very friendly service. Especially liked the little freebie dessert and drink on the house. We ate in this restaurant 4 nights out the the 7 while we stayed in Stalis, so I think this says it all!
