What a fantastic café/taverna/ restaurant. Went five years ago and it was the first place to visit on our return to central Crete.

Had a wonderful meal there yesterday. Delicious, simple, honest food. Amazing view. The most friendly staff. Highly recommend. Try the stuffed vine leaves with cheese platter!

Had a coffee and cakes, stopping during our drive through Crete. Average coffee with stale cakes, and a not very hospitable service. The view was great.

We enjoyed delicious food with a gorgeous view over the Lassithi Plateau. The service was more than friendly. One felt welcome as once. Plus the owners had a great souvenir shop with self-made olive oil, Raki and much more. A visit is very recommenable!!

What a find! We stopped here en-route to the Lassithi plateau. The views are amazing and the owner was so helpful. Delicious fresh orange juice and reasonably priced souvenirs for sale. Worth stopping off for!!

We were having lunch in this Taverna. It is placed in the beautiful location, with breathtaking view. Food was delicious. But most of all, the service was excellent. We felt welcome there, and we experienced hospitality as we have not met for a long time.
