“cretan cuisine at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We are coming since mor than 10 years to this little town and
we have tried a lot of restaurants.
Most of them are mediocre !

Grameno restaurant is in our opinion one of the best addresses to enjoy excellent authentic Cretan food
Located only 5 km from Paleohora.
It has a very nice garden.

“this is correct name for Grammeno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I reviewed this most positively under the name that Tripadvisor had already used, Grammeno. In brief it's the best place to eat Cretan food in the region!!!

“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
