About
All Crete has rich, natural Beauty! One of this places is Roka. One impotrant feature of our village is its archelogical history and of course its natural beauty.Three thousand years ago, at the foot of the mountain. King rokkeas had his Kingdom. Until today, there still exist the ruins of his kingdom, which show their ancinet skills in art and wealth of their culture. we live the good life, which includes cooking tasty and traditional food in the old fashioned way. We built the Taverna as a family and we work it as a family. and of course all of our dishes are made using only the old tried and true recipes, resulting in tasty and delicious meals for you - our valued customers.We, your hosts,

This is a very nice restaurant. I hate when I get forced to eat somewhere I don’t want to. I want to go around, and make my own choice. Here you have a nice atmosphere, friendly staff and you feel relaxed. On top of that...More

Very good and well done food, I recommend Sea Bass and the best Kleftiko I've tried. Their own wine of the house is made from their own grapes and taste very good for the money. Extremely welcoming, kind and fast service.
