I stayed at the Hotel Keramos, and this restaraunt was recommended to us. The portions were huge, the food delicious and reasonable, and the waiter, George, was fantastic. Charming place and wish that we could come back often, but since we are American, that isn't possible. The potato salad was out of this world and when I mentioned this to... More

This restaurant is welcoming, colourful, relaxing and authentically Greek. Vivi is the wonderful friendly and funny owner who welcomes you with Greek cheek kisses and waves you to the best seat available. Sitting on the balcony is a lovely way to cool down on a hot evening and with the cushioned chairs, plants and colourful drapes you are surrounded by... More

The chef / owner of this place, Vivi, has a real passion for authentic, high-quality, home-cooked food. There is no menu. She gives you a selection of freshly prepared dishes of the day. Really good value for delicious food. After our banquet she invited us into the kitchen to witness her making the most delicious looking delicacies and gave us... More

After reading the board outside was intrigued by the concept that for a fixed price we would be served a selection of dishes - being out with four friends made this brilliant, all we had to do was state if we ate meat and or fish (along with mentioning I was a veggie) and if we wanted beer or wine...

Step into this small restaurant in the mountain town of Zaros, Crete and you will be warmly greeted. Choose the special menu (trout or meat). This menu includes soup, vegetable dishes, meats, coffee, dessert and wine for 12 Euros. But wait! VIve, the sociable owner explains that so much food is provided that it is difficult for one person to... More

We went for a late lunch. They cook whatever is fresh and seasonal. The servings are very large and it is served family style. Salad, several meat dishes, several vegetable dishes, wine and water! Everything tastes so good, and flavorful. They have their own farm. Vivi and her staff are great. They really enjoy themselves and it shows!! Das war... More

This place is run by a pair of charming characterful ladies who just bring you what they think you should have. Wine is included and however much you drink the bill seems to remain the same, 12 euros each for the whole meal which involves numerous courses. It keeps the maths simple and the food is good and tasty. We... More

Tasty freshly cooked food. Warm and welcoming service. The daily menu consists of 5 - 6 choices made using their own / local produce served with bread, glass of wine and desert for €12. Well worth a visit. Cooking lessons available too.

Just believe all of the other 5 star reviews. We cannot wait to go back - it worth staying in Zaros just to visit Vegera. Sit down, order the set menu and enjoy the best feast of Cretan food you will get anywhere, at a fraction of the price you would expect. Then enjoy a chat with Vivi, the owner-chef,... More

The concept is interesting: you eat what they have cooked for the day, for 12 € per person including 0.25 L of wine and water. There was more than enough food for 2 people: 2 courses of meat, one course of fish, some vegetables, some fries, a green salad, some yoghurt. The food was good. The service was a little... More
