An evening with four children

The service was excellent with humour but attention to detail. The food (lobster, snails, pork belly, beef stifado and roast chicken was first class. Recommend

The restaurant is located at the main road as most of the restaurants in and near Amoudara. Cars drive, some with loud music, but it does not disturb in a way that you can't enjoy your meal. Just don't expect a super quite place. It is very cosy, nice athmosphere, many flowers, clever lighting and comfortable surroundings. The staff is... More

We had a very nice graviera saganaki, mousakas and a Greek salad. Nice service and place. The prices are reasonable. Worth visiting.

Had the gyros which consisted of pork, (homemade?) pitta, salad and chips. The meat was cooked very well and had a lovely taste. The man who served us was extremely friendly and treated us to a free starter of bread, and a free dessert and a shot each. Reasonably priced and calm atmosphere, would eat here again.

With his mother at the stove and his constant smile and good humor we returned to have more of his solid Taverna favorites and the his home made Raki. For those who find Raki too strong try the mint version. The Greek salad, the tzatziki, the fish and the... More

Traditional Cretan food cooked perfectly using locally sourced beautifully fresh ingredients. Service with a smile and many free side dishes brought to your table for you to try. This is a family-run taverna with Kostas overseeing all that goes on, a really genuine person, who isn't just putting on a facade.On one occasion I got the Cod, it was fresh... More

We visited as a family of six who all chose different meals. All the meals were great and reasonably priced. The owner was very friendly and welcoming.
