“No Better Place To Eat in Zaros!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Run by the same family who run the Hotel Keramos, Vegera has fresh food from the family farm, a happy vibe and warm atmosphere, and is a good value as well. There is no menu. For 12 euros, food starts to appear from the kitchen and just when you think you might be done, something else wonderful is delivered to your table. The 12 euro price includes dessert and a carafe of wine. The food - lamb, pork, chicken, green beans, salad, potatoes, cheese, and whatever is fresh that day is prepared expertly and the portions are ample. You will not be disappointed!

“Wonderful food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

There is no choice, but the food is excellent and varied. Generous portions of typically Cretan dishes. Exceptional value for money.

“ Good authentic Cretan dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

I agree with the commentators who gave 5 points. There is no menu to choose from. For 12 € you get 2 starters, a maindish consisting of 3 different dishes according to the season, a desert, water, 0,25 ltr. of wine and coffee. Even the voracious gourmet gets his fairly share. We had a very tasty lowfat meal : Fava, lentilsoup, pork with Pommes, sausage with pasta , grilled trout, cake and coffee. I appreciated especially the different salad.

“Great traditional Cretan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

This place is a beautifully welcoming friendly restaurant. The owners don't seem to speak a lot of English and as other reviewers have said, we didn't get a menu. We just got a 3 course meal of soup, then a mix of meat and vegetable dishes, and then a dessert. We were given water, white wine and a coffee with our dessert. It was 12 euros a person and was delicious.

You can also buy local herbs and honey here. We were given a free sample of herbs with our bill, which are amazing!

I would say though that if there is anything you can't/won't eat, you really need to be able to explain that at the outset! Overall, it's a wonderful place to eat

“Great homemade food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

A relaxed dining experience - no menus, they just bring out a variety of traditional cretan dishes - all delicious! The sauces in particular are very tasty. Generous portions, you will not leave hungry :)
