We had the best greek vegetarian food we've ever had here, they couldn't have been more helpful too. The briam, gigantes, fava, beetroot salad and many more were all delicious. Particularly loved their spinach pies flavoured with dill. Add to that the friendly, caring family feeling and eating here made our holiday for us.

Fresh homemade food. Excellent service and hospitality. Cretan night with dancing was so much fun. A great place to stop before or after a visit to the ancient site of Aptera.

We had lunch here in September and the view of the White Mountains from our table was stunning. Food was excellent and lots of it, and prices very reasonable. Very child friendly, with toys around for them to play with.

My husband and I have just returned from a 14-night honeymoon in a villa very near to The Cretan Corner. We came back here numerous times, on account of the food being absolutely delicious and full of flavour. Of particular mention has to be be the saganaki prawns (out of this world), the village sausages and the lamb ribs. Also,... More
