Had an amazing cretan dinner. Owners recommendation turned out very good even for our kids. Lovely home made red wine and raki with honey. As it is a small family run restaurant with fresh food, service is slower but totally worth the wait.

Excellent home cooked food and friendly service minded staff. I think they are all from the same family. It´s about ten minutes off the main street, but it´s definately a place you should not miss.

This restaurant is amazing! If it's traditional Greek food you're looking for, cooked by mum, served by daughter, then this is the place. Zucchini balls, stuffed aubergine, lamb, homemade yogurt, all excellent

The restaurant was a bit uphill from the big road. The food was truly the best in the whole Crete. It was real authentic mother’s food and so tasty. Service was great! We will come again.
