I got trip adviser just to write a review of this place. I’m gonna keep it short and sweet: some of the greatest food i’ve ever had not just in Greece not just in the last few years but in my life. Mabye i’m over...exaggerating but you’ll know what I mean when you get the pasta.More

The meal we had was incredible, the lamb was amazing. Everything was as best as I can describe as home cooked. The view was WOW.

After a planned trip to Agios Antonios Gorge in Asites, we had booked a table in Aerino. I had noticed it before from a visit to the monastery of Agios Georgios of Gorgolaini and the view is amazing. We arrived around noon in Aerino where...a lot of clients had already arrived but a reserved table with a view was waiting for us. The speed of service was impressive and even more impressive was the taste of the appetizers and of the main dishes. Highly recommended for those who know!More

We had the reception of our boy’s & girl’s Baptism in this beautiful place with the amazing view and we couldn’t be happier! Our guests were ecstatic with the food and the service was quick, with all the staff being extra polite and friendly. Higly...recommended for an event/reception or just for anyone who wants to have a bite of the traditional high-quality cretan cuisine! Thank you for everything!!More

We found this wonderful place accidentally on our way from the beach to our residence. From the first second we felt totally comfortable and like we are a part of the family. The owner family are the best host you can imagine. We had the...best lamb and starters we ever ate. The whole restaurant is open with a great view from the mountains. What we really have to mention especially is that the entire property is really clean and tidy. There are too many things to tell and advise as this rating would be way too long. Whenever we will get back to Crete we will definitely be here. Keep on the good work and stay how you are! SteffenMore

We've eaten here maybe 5 times in our 2 weeks holiday in the village. The welcome is always warm and friendly, Nikos and his team deliver really nice service and the food is delicious. We like the stuffed vine leaves and the Earino salad, the...home cooked lamb is terrific. Top all of that with such a great view to watch to sun set over the vineyards and olive fields.More

This is by far my favourite place to visit whilst staying in Crete, and this year we had the pleasure of using the fantastic apartments. The food is traditional and superb and all the facilities are spotless. The view over the rolling hills and down...to the sea is outstanding and the atmosphere is amazing. The team are outstanding and will always ensure you have the best experience even if the restaurant is full or hosting a party. We have had the pleasure to enjoy traditional celebrations and made to feel welcome to join in and be a part of the festivities. Whilst 25 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas it is well worth a visit. This is a family run restaurant who have developed an outstanding establishment for all to enjoy.More

This is THE place to go when you want to get away from all the stress. There is always a fresh mountain breeze that blows away your every sorrow. You are surrounded by wonderful views of Crete's wild nature and agriculture. The very friendly owner's...calm adds to the experience. The food is very fresh, exquisite and well presented. Whenever you are in the neighbourhood of Heraklion, make the detour, it is more than worth it!More

2019, October. We stayed here in this beautiful, serene, home and absolutely loved our visit. The owners cater to your every need and the meals they serve are outstanding. If you want peace, quiet and beauty this is the place to stay but yet, close...enough to get out and do some touring.More

What a hidden gem! We had lunch one day in late August at this wonderful taverna, with its amazing food and fantastic owner. Whatever we ate was delicious and the views were breathtaking! U really have to try it for yourself.

Tried Earino in August with the idea of trying several different restaurants in the area...... in the end we ended up coming back over and over again. Great view, lovely food and the staff couldn't have been any friendlier to me, my wife and our...chatty and energetic son. I could not recommend this little gem highly enough!More

We visited while staying nearby on the recommendation of our host and we were very glad we did! Sadly we arrived too late to take advantage of the beautiful views, but the restaurant itself was lovely (we ate outside on the terrace) and the staff...were friendly and attentive. Portions were generous we thought and we ordered far too much but managed to eat most of it and all for a very reasonable price (less that 40 euro for 2 people, wine and lots and lots of food!)More

Really glad we decided to take a mountain road from a neighbouring village for an evening meal. This place is worth visiting for the food or the view. To get both is a real treat.
