Heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a go. The SatNav takes you right there but parking can be an issue. We parked in a lay-by further down the road and walked up to it. It is overshadowed by a neighbouring restaurant but...don’t let that put you off. We were met by the waiter Akis, who is a neighbour helping out the owner, Litsa, who is always present. We went after sundown so could not appreciate the views that other people have mentioned. It’s a traditional restaurant with outside seating. You share the area with a flock of nesting swallows in the wooden beams! Akis is very personable and is helpful with the menu. I highly recommend the goat, great tasting and a good portion.More

I had heard alot about this lovely restaurant, worth traveling for their traditional dishes. True! Agree that even the bread, with oliveoil, salt and herbs was something extra. I had the squid , so soft and fresh. Dessert was on the house, and a small...coffeliquer made the grand finale. Excellent quality, great prices. Very freindy helpful staffMore

The food was indifferent. The taste of it was weak and not traditional. The restaurant was expensive for what it offered.More

What ever try to say about this place will not describe that HIDDEN GEM.. The quality of the food, local products, extreme high quality. Local handcrafted beers and wines, amazing prices, excellent and super friendly staff, super location.. 10/10 in all aspects.. If you don't...visit that place you will not have a true and deep Greek cuisine experience..More

Been near Falasarna for swimming and on the way back to Chania we took a detour and start going up the mountain towards the cape. What a wise decision! Having heard so much I was afraid that my high expectations would lead me to an...emergency landing from the gastronomy clouds. Worth every mile, like we'd say worth every penny. Ambient great, service very helpful and accommodating and the food AMAZING! Even the bread with the oil that some restaurants serve in Greece before you start your meal, had a real taste reminding us that what we usually eat in the cities is not great. Everything was great taste, portion sizes, plates! I could go on and on on every dish but I will comment only one to justify the title. The soutzoukakia (kind of meatballs with spices traditional in my family) accompanied with rice is usually something you do not ask as it can often arrive dry and tasteless or with one ingredient dominating the rest and I usually prefer to eat at home. Believe me this one was far better than homemade! Tasty, soft, juicy, well balanced seasonings and well sourced meat. I would definitely go again in my next trip! Well done!More

food was incredibly tastu. we had bread dipped with olive oil and herbs, cretan pies with cheese and spinach, and salad. the highlight of our lunch was avocado herrig and lettuce salad. very unusual combination turned out to be super delicious. there is little craft...shop inside too. staff very friendly and professional, and made really nice relaxing atmosphere. they have relaxing reggae music playing too. plenty of space to obsere social distancing. good spot for taking pics. we tried ice cream made of sheep milk. I was afraid it'll be strong taste, but it was very delicate and we will definitely be going back there !! hidden gem, so worth it. 1min from beachMore

Visited as 2 families (4 adults and 3 Kids) Tucked away in the mountain side village is this little hidden gem of a family run restaurant. Selling locally sourced , traditional Cretan cooked dishes which tasted delicious, They also served a wonderful Rose wine and...the local brew Charma . Very welcoming, friendly and couldn’t do enough. Would thoroughly recommend and would return in a heartbeat . Do yourself a favour , if you are on the Kolymbari area, take a trip up the hill , seek out this beautiful restaurant... you will not be disappointed.More
