“Great food, friendly owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We spent a week in Aptera and ate at Cretan Corner most nights. We tried the one across the square as it was mentioned in the Rough Guide however preferred Cretan Corner. As a non meat eater I was well catered for and we both agreed they did the best lemon potatoes we've ever had! The owner came and sat with us a couple of nights when it quietened down and we chatted about her life in Crete, her family, the Greek economy..............this all added to our holiday enjoyment.

“Cretan Corner ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Fabulous views over the White Mountains when the weather allows creates a great setting to sample well cooked food all sourced locally. V friendly owner who provides plenty of insight into the area. The food is well worth the trip as well.

“Good food even better views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Great place to while away a good couple of hours or so over lunch and drink in the view. The food is great and just that little bit different from the usual run of the mill Greek fare.

“Delightful, Friendly, Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

My friend and I had just spent a couple of hours at the ancient ruins at Aptera and were really hungry. Cretan Corner was open and we wandered in. I had my Lonely Planet Guide with me and began to read. I looked up and saw a woman sitting nearby. It was Sue, the owner, who graciously chatted with us about her taverna, life in Crete, and her Friday morning "coffees," where invited guests come to speak about their work or interests. We has the stuffed peppers, prawns in a tomato cheese sauce, and a beet salad--all tasty, fresh, locally grown and beautifully presented. Sue and her family raise much of the fare on their farm. We went searching for a meal and found a community!
