When in crete you must visit Medusa restaurant.The food is so tasty and fresh . When you order fish you get to choose it and when its cooked the waiter will fillet it at your table for you. It was a really good meal and we really enjoyed our dining experience there.

Very clean and attractive Restaurant. The Food was very good, I recommend the Dozes red wine. Service was good. Very close to the Hotel we stayed at, The Island also great. The Sardines were brilliant, they were very fresh and tasty. Antonis would not let us bring Mama home to cook ours. Fish is delivered daily many other attractive dishes.
