Great Ambience, great people.

We stopped here by chance on our way to a wine tasting estate which we found close. And thank god we did, this place is amazing. The owners are really nice and their wine is stellar (they produce red wine). It was so good that we decided to buy a bottle. Food is great, highly recommended.

Stumbled upon this taverna after visiting the Peza wine factory. A beautiful family run establishment. Large portions of great tasting food. Asked for the bill and got bought desserts with Raki for 5 of us. A pleasant surprise and...... free if charge. Awesome.

We ate here on two successive nights. It was recommended by our villa in Kounavi (villa Thera). Family-run, home cooked food. Wow. Night one we had pork with wine sauce, lemon lamb, herby pies and salad for 28 euros. Complimentary yoghurt with raisins marinated, and raki. Homemade wines excellent, youthful. Night two went vegetarian - gorgeous fried courgette balls, Smryrna... More

Yesterday we went for a lunch in this taverna and we liked everything. It's well decorated Cretan taverna with polite owner, good service and delicious meals. The atmosphere is wonderful, the fire in the fireplace makes you feel like you're at home, the tasty food, the good wine and the reasonable prices - this is what people can get in... More

We stopped by Peza and had lunch in the restaurant. It was just at the beginning of our trip and it has been one of the best meals we've had. I would recommend it to everyone. The tzatziki and stuffed aubergines were outstanding and the best about the restaurant was the kindness of the owners, they ended up offering us... More

The highlight of our European dining experience! Worth the drive from heraklion for a great feed! Staff were extremely friendly. All produce is locally sourced. If you want to get a real taste of Greek Cretan cuisine, a visit is a must!

We had two meals at Onisimos Taverne in the village of Peza, during our holiday in Crete. We had good food (especially fond of the green beans in tomato sauce and the filled wine leaves, and my husband liked the rabbit very much) and lovely wine from the family's own wine fields around Peza. The food is local, fresh and... More

I must admit that it was definitely a memorable food experience! Having cretan origins myself, i have lived in Crete with my grandparents and tasted the real homemade cretan cuisine. I can reassure you that every single plate of this beautifully decorated restaurant is remarkably tasteful, made with quality products from cretan producers. The recipes are traditional and some of... More

I've been there this summer. The taverna is nice and welcoming. But the most important thing is the quality of the food, the best food eaten in my tour all around the island! Really suggested if you are planning a tour in Crete or in the Peza area to discover the vinery!
