Our best meals in Crete (we came back twice - what we normally don’t do). Appetizers and salad were all excellent and mains were very good. Drinks were well recommended. Service was excellent. So do not miss them

Amazing restaurant with an inspiring menu and a perfect selection of local wines. Definitely worth a visit although it is a bit more expensive than other traditional restaurants nearby, but worth every penny.
