This place is amazing. The recreation of Minoan times, the traditional Cretan music and dance, and the culinary trip were an experience everyone should discover. Anna and her husband Vagelus, the actors and acrobats gave me a birthday to remember.

Great value experience! A welcome drink to meet fellow patrons, a show, food and drink in the Cretan style, traditional Cretan music (superb young musicians attuned to the culture), Cretan dancing and audience participation. Brilliant venue with authentic Cretan artefacts and buildings.

Well organized, good food and wine and the artists are wonderful, cherrful and really have worked a lot for the performances. I wish the scene was bigger and sturdier because the artists invite the attendees to dance and it was a bit crowded.
