Andreas Polizoakis has created a wonderful social and food hub in the centre of Choudetsi. I spent the week in the town attending a course at Labyrinth School across the road, and this restaurant became the focus of much social interaction and after-hours music and...More

This is the best meal we’ve had so far after a week in Crete. A beautiful courtyard in a delightful little village in the winery district. The service was charming and thoughtful and although the meals came out gradually (there were 11 of us!) each...More

This is not the usual, moussaka-and-slouvaki Greek restaurant. This is a high-end place with very reasonable prices --all main dishes are under 10 euros -in a pleasant patio, right in the village center. The place is slightly bohemian, as the village hosts a music institute...More
