This place is heaven! I know cretan food very well and this one is really the best I’ve ever tasted ! Everything is home made, fresh and above all... so tasty ! Furthermore, it is really nice to chill in Lythos taverna, under the shade...of the trees and everybody taking so good care of you ! It is definitely the place to be if you want to know Crete and its famous warm welcome.More

Hubby and I visited for Lunch. Chose Lithos as it was #1 on T.A! It certainly lives up to it's reviews. We started with some fresh bread served with their own olive oil, which was lovely. For main my hubby chose the goat from the...woodfire oven, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the mixed plate of mezes, on the menu it's for two persons, but on my request they did it just for one! We also ordered some fried courgettes. The whole meal and experience was excellent. We were served complimentary orange pie and some delicious Greek delight along with Raki. We are here for 6 weeks and have a car, so will definitely be going again.More
