“The benchmark for the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

There is an advert in the UK for the VW Golf where features of other cars are said to be 'Just like a Golf'; Taverna Grameno is the parallel. Other tavernas may do the odd dish as well but none do it all.
About 5k out of Paleochora on the right it offers a range of slow cooked traditional dishes as well as a grill for meat and fish. In addition Spiridoula and Mano do a lot of innovative dishes. The best idea is to ignore the menu and look at what is on offer. Drinks of course including traditional red/ brown Cretan wine which is great with food. The raki is as good as it gets.
Combine a meal with a day on the nearby beaches which are more sheltered than Paleochora.
Most of the food seems locally sourced including snails. Excellent
