Quite a decent experience! Both waiters were kind and with a smile. The menu was small due to “COVID-19 circumstances” but very pleasing. Fresh ingredients, good quality of olive oil and fruity white wine. For sure a nice choice in the area.

Definitely the best meals we had in Crete. Original flavours, nothing too fancy but still nicely presented. A lot of options (no main meal for vegetarian though) and an authentic setting make it a restaurant you have to try.

This place is absolutely wonderful. We ate many times during our stay and were completely awed by the care and love that went into the food and the service. This family restaurant has recipes that are fused from generations and families and histories. Even their...dog is filled with smiles and laughter :) The food was really hearty and everything, even the chips, are grown or raised by them. A particular highlight was the chicken in tomato sauce, totally unlike any chicken you’ve ever had, lamb in wine sauce and, a must have, are the stuffed zucchini flowers. We asked about their animals and farms and were invited to go and help feed the wild goats and sheep, even hear the bees. The animals love him so much and he knows them so well. Thank you for such a memorable experience! We miss you!More

Wow, what can I say about this unpretentious road side taverna? Monica is a wonderful host, keen to chat to us and share her stories. Food is all home cooked using mostly home grown,reared meat and vegetables, in delicious sauces. Very generous portion sizes and...delicious. Lots of daily specials in addition to the menu. Homemade wine was very good, have paid more for less good "branded" wines. We were in a villa a few kilometres away, and we all agreed there was no point eating anywhere else. Slow cooked meat dishes along with the fresh pesto pasta were amazing. All very reasonabley priced.More

We ate here twice whilst around Sougia area. The family were so lovely and helpful. The food was delicious and home cooked. Monica was great with menu adjustments for my partner who has intolerances. I'd highly recommended.

We had dinner at this stunning taverna twice whilst staying at the Monastery, both times the food was delicious and all homemade using fresh, local ingredients. The family are so welcoming and have such an interesting story as to how the family business started. Monica...and her husband were kind enough to take us to see and feed their farm animals which was the highlight for my 8 year old daughter! Try the fresh pesto sauce, tzatziki and the slow cooked meat dishes!More

This taverna deserves to be nr 1, even if it would not be the only taverna in the village of Moni :-) Mixalis and Monica will give you a warm welcome and serve you whatever has been cooked fresh that day. Our favorite dish is...Monica's slow cooked prok with apricots. Preferably with some local white wine next to it. And of course after diner drink some home made raki.More
