We turned off the main road on our way to Phaistos, following the sign for the taverna, and easily found this splendid place. A warm welcome from the owners, excellent homemade and often homegrown food, in a lovely garden with flowers and fruiting trees. We are recommending it to all our friends and family.

Absolutely stunning ! Also the... More
