Best food in Crete so far! Authentic, simple and very very tasty, as well as very well priced. We will return!

“You must try the special of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We came in via exit one and were greated with this fantasic taverna, we went for lunch which was fantastic and it was suggested that we try a local dish of lamb and also chose special of the day which was pork cooked in tomato and paprika both were the besy we have had anywhere on the island and at a great price. The family are really welcoming and well worth a visit we went back three times and would have loved to have visited more but we only hireed a car for a week.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

You won't get a better view to eat the best lamb that you have properly ever tasted
The staff are wonderful
So helpful but do not over do or put you under any pressure what so ever
I'm just sad we came across this place on our last day
My favourite restaurant of the two weeks holiday
The lamb is a must followed by a delicious glass of red wine
Everything is made and grown by the owners
This reflects in all the delightful flavours

“Excellent & deliscious ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

A very great but small taverne at the Kournas Lake where you can have a quality diner/lunch.
Very nice people and tasty wine.
If it was near my house I would go there often.
