“Best food in Crete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

My family has gone back to Jannis every time we are in Crete. You can not beat his food, his hospitality or friendliness. Jannis makes you feel like you are at your home away from home. We have tried other restaurants in the area, but nothing compares to Jannis!

“Excellent As Always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have been dining at Jannis for many years and as other reviewers have said the welcome is like coming home! Whilst there are a lot of excellent tavernas in Stalis Jannis remains one of our favourites.
The food is traditional with a Jannis twist Bifteki (feta stuffed meatballs), Exohiko (lamb baked in the oven) and the house wine the best I have ever tasted and this together with the little Jannis extras of fresh bread with homemade dips to start a mousse and complimentary drink to finish make all the difference.
We will be back on our next visit to Stalis.
