“Athentic and creative, real value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had a beautiful dinner in this restaurant. Service was charming, house wine DELICIOUS and the foot really really great. Taste their meat balls, their fava, their ... everything. We can only recommend this restaurant. Food is cretan (greek) with a touch of creativity. Nice terrass. Prices really reasonnable.

“Well cooked, well served, well priced. Really good Kretan food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I ate here twice during our stay in Katalagari. The restaurant looks very good! Qaint, lovely and with lots of atmosphere. The food is really good and a welcome exception to the touristy steak and fries. I would very much recomend eating here.

“Creative but traditional delicious greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Kritamon restaurant in Archanes is a must. It is not the typical greek taverna so prices are a bit higher but the food is excuisite. It is hidden so you can't just come accross it. It is behind the main square, behind Pancritia bank.

We had several starters which were all delicious (a few were: stuffed bine leaves, sesame covered cheese with petimezi sweet sauce, salad) and we shared two mains, the Minoan style port and the prawn pasta. Both were presented nicely, the portions were very good and the cooking excellent. I loved the pork with the chestnut mash and different dried fruits. We also had two desserts, the chocolate lava cake and the tiramisu with a twist. Fantastic!

Very nice atmosphere and Dimitris, the chef and owner was a great host. Thank you!

“one of the "to do's" on crete if you like cretan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Excellent, fresh traditional cretan food. presentation is special for a greet restaurant. All the dishes we tried, about 15!, were very tasting. the chef Dimitris speaks good english as well. The restaurant is usual, not luxury but ok for a traditional restaurant. It's on our list of the favorite restaurants on Crete. price / quality is good.
