The proprietor served us and was helpful and friendly. The carafe wine was smooth, but one of the main courses absolutely, incredibly salty. Cretans always use too much salt anyway, but this was really over the top. There were very few diners this late in the season and so the atmosphere was obviously rather flat.

While looking for a place to eat lunch we saw this place's menu outside and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The waitress (Whom I believe is also one of the owner's family) greeted us and was very patient while we decided. The food we ordered arrived quickly (Which was good because we were starving), and...

We ordered lam there but it was plain with bones. Few meat there. But Raki here - the best raki in Amoudara! You should buy some of it to take with you!

We ate here on our last night on Crete as it was close to our hotel, and we were certainly not disappointed! It was up there with the best food we ate on the island. Food was very authentic and delicious, i would recommend the greek tasting plate as you get to sample different authentic recipes. A great selection of... More

The owner is a charismatic and friendly man always with a smile. The food was great and fairly priced - Try the gryos. The owner brought us complimentary starters and desert which was a very nice touch. Highly recommended!

We went to see how the tavern is and drink a juice( for which we've waited 15min), no hospitality from the part of owners compared to other taverns and no interest to find out more about our needs or preferences. Our decision is to have our dinner in another part where we could feel welcomed.

As in all Greek places - when You order the food You get additional bread with home made Greek seasoning, 'rakija' and dessert afterwards. Also, a very nice chief - he not only came to talk to us but also brought a map and showed what to visit in Crete and how to get there. We ate there three times... More
