Come Hungry - Stay Long.

Generous, Local, Authentic, Delicious. There is no menu - once you sit down, the dishes start to appear. It is all good stuff, made from local ingredients and the recipes are traditional, but interpreted with a twist of new imagination. Bring a good appetite!

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

We went to Vivis restaurant twice while staying in Zaros and were not disappointed. The set menu is fabulous and at the end of the meal you are treated to raki and fruit which is a very nice touch. The food doesn't come out all at once which gives you a chance to savour each dish. Vivi is a wonderful... More

During our stay in Zaros we visited Vegera 4 times. It is hard to find any comparison to the quality, hospitality and atmosphere of Vegera. I visited many reastauarant all around Crete and this one is a real diamond! Day menu is the feast for the whole family (x2 for 2 adults and two boys). The taste and variety of... More

Where do I start? The food, the quality, the host??? Vivi runs a fantastic restaurant that only uses local (home grown) produce that is in season, which culminates in daily menu for just 12 Euro. The menu is different each day and you always leave with a smile on your face and a full tummy - in fact on one... More

Just go for the 12 € day menu and you won't be disappointed. Friendly, simple family taverna with yummy home food. Assortment comes with salad, various starters, main course and desert.

It's sad to say that the food is not as good as on previous visits over the last five years. Maybe it's because Vivi wasn't on the premises, who knows? The food was bland and even the Moussaka was lacking in taste :(

This restaurant is not to be missed! Six of us arrived for lunch, four adults an eleven year old and a thirteen year old. We were hungry. When we asked for a menu, the owner wouldn't hear of it. "What you like? I feed you!" She brought out so many wonderful dishes we couldn't keep track. If she saw we... More
