We had lunch there on a Sunday. It was not particularly busy, but service was slow and inattentive. Food was okay. Lamb chops were tasty but really standard fare for a traditional taverna. My wife chose liver which was also okay, but was served about 10 mins before they brought my dish. As I said, it was not busy!!! The... More

The tavern offers traditional cretan food, and the waiter (owner?) wears a black outfit, black leather shoes, has a moustache etc. The dishes we had though were not the best. The fried potatoes were soggy, the lamp chops had a light smell we returned one dish (liver) because it was burned and prices were lightly high. Next time I'll try... More

We arrived at this taverna after a hair raising but stunning drive over the mountains. It is situated across the road from the Museum of National Resistance which is worth a visit. The taverna seemed to be mostly frequented by Greek families which is usually a good sign. At first we sat outside in the courtyard but soon moved inside... More

It cannot get more authentic than this: based in a village with 80 inhabitants who own ~14,000 sheeps/goats, you know already that the ingredients are top notch. What you don't know is that the simple cooking required for these has been mastered to Zen perfection: it has the best goat 'trsigariasto/sfakiano' ever - don't leave Crete without tasting it! The...

Every time I am in Chania, I make it a point to eat here. The food is great and it is local, and it is fresh. The owner, Niko, is a class act and I highly recommend you speak with him and get him to tell you some of his stories. The drive to the restaurant is amazing, driving through... More
