We went to Medusa on our last night in Crete and it was a perfect ending to our week of delicious, authentic Greek food. We asked our server what was good and he laughed and said, "It's all good - mama cooks it." How could we argue with that? Everything we ordered was top-notch. The carafes of wine were tasty... More

We were made to feel so welcome and Antonio brought us a fantastic platter of traditional Greek food. It was absolutely delicious and clearly cooked with love by his mother. The atmosphere was relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. thank you.

Antonio brought out a selection of freshly caught fish for myself and my friends to choose from. We made our selection and it arrived to the table perfectly cooked, accompanied by a fine Cretan white wine. A most enjoyable feast and all round brilliant evening.

We went there for lunch and dinner, the food was great. They changed a salad to suit my tastes, and couldn't be more polite and helpful. Family run business, great vibe and clean restaurant. The calamari was a little chewy, but I guess that's not their fault.

Keeping it simple, you go here for first class fresh fish, they do other dishes that are excellent but they excel with fish. OK the service can be a bit slow but good food takes longer to produce in a small restaurant and it is well worth the wait, after all it's a Greek restaurant since when did anything happen... More

If you know your wine then look no further. Sadly we only managed to go the once but will definitely go back on our next visit in 2016!

The restaurant had been pre warned that there was a party of 15 dining, and accepted the booking. I had the courgettes to start and moussaka as a main. The food was good, but the service was slow. We had to wait two hours for our main course.
