Spyros is amazing ;) If you want to know how to be a good restaurant owner you should visit Spyros!

Spyros is a bit off the beaten track and a walk up a hill but it's worth hunting it out. Our party of 8 were greeted warmly and quickly settled into the traditional Greek atmosphere in this nice little Taverna. Spyros and his staff were very friendly and a cry of 'yammas' seemed to accompany every delivery to the table.... More

11 of us arrived at about 7.30 pm. From start to finish it was not at all a relaxing experience. Everything was rushed except the delivery of the food which took about 1 hour and 40 minutes to be served and at best it was edible.

Can't fault this place! Food excellent, drinks always flowing & prices reasonable. Pick up from & return 2 hotel was a bonus. Hopefully the standards r still high as we're going back on Tuesday for our last night in Crete. Can't wait!! Keep up the good work Spyros!!
