This is without a doubt the best place in Makry-Gialos. Me and my girlfriend Sarah were here 5 times in one week and tried almost all of their courses. All of the food is amazing and home made and most if it is home grown as well. Even the wine - it's amazing. Their homemade cheese (not on the menu)... More

The best food, the sweetest staff and the best service I have ever met! The restaurant looks quite ordinary when you pass it, you are probably on your way somewhere else, "haunting" for the ultimate place to eat, and you think it has to look expensive. You are so wrong!If I knew that I'd find the perfect place just across... More

We visited on an evening when the weather was poor, no other diners came in in the whole time we were there so a rather cold atmosphere despite friendly staff and good service......One thing that was off putting as we sat waiting for our food, was the incessant chatter from the 3 ladies of the house who had taken residence...

It's pretty easy to say that all the restaurateurs in Makrigialos are friendly, but none of them are more so than in Aposperitis. You're always greeted with a smile and you're encouraged to practise your Greek if you want to, which is always fantastic, and the food easily matches the service. You always feel welcome in Aposperitis, and the food... More

Best restaurant in Makrygialos. Local and/or homemade produce, the best homemade cheese og the best oliveoil i've ever tasted. Eat here, and you will be sure of a great cretan meal, served and prepared by a friendly staff, at a more than resonable Price.. Also, remember to try the homemade Wine.. Eating anywhere els but here, is a giant mistake.

Decided to give this restaurant a try. I had the mixed grill. Perhaps I made a mistake ordering this as it was more about quantity rather than quality. My partner enjoyed her chicken souvelaki and other people in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying their meals. I didn't enjoy mine so cannot recommend to others. Sorry.

A name that's hard to remember. Often it's very empty there, but visit the taverna anyway. The Food is very good and a quiet atmosphere.

During our stay in Makrigialos my wife and I together with our daughter son-in-law and little granddaughter dined here on a number of occasions. We loved the family atmosphere and the welcome from Yannis and his family. The meals were first class the food and wines were all sourced from the family farm and produced organically. The hospitality was wonderful... More

Our host Yannis worked very hard to ensure we were happy and we were treated like friends. Sat and chatted with us after our meal and gave us a real feel for Crete and his life there which was nice. Good food; simple, fresh and tasty ( we had mushrooms a la creme with garlic bread and fresh fish dish... More

Myself and my husband ate here and I must say it was one of the best meals we have had in Makrigialos. We ordered the courgette pies for starter which were excellent and the bread was to die for. We also were given roasted peppers and some sardines, delicious and a very nice gesture. All the food comes from the... More
