Gia sou efteri ke ikogenia. alekos apo lonthino. For the review wondering 'why the fuss"? This is amongst the best and authentic Greek food anywhere- as a Greek I love this place and so do other locals and visitors alike. Go up the road to see empty places when this is full. Yes you wait when it's busy. Why? Because... More

Considering it's first for best restaurants in Piskopiano, we went there. It was almost full and there were only two free tables left that could be used for the 5 of us. Instead they put us in a very tricky place where even one of the waiter tried to explain it was to narrow for the staff to go through.... More

It was very busy as you can't reserve a table but we only waited 5 minutes and it was worth it. It is a meze type of meal. You are given the menu on a pad and you tick what you'd like to eat/drink. The food is then brought out constantly! This meal for 2 adults and a child with... More

Absolutely fabulous family run restaurant. The menu is tapas style and we found 3 dishes per person was plenty of food. The quality of the food is very very good and everything is cooked fresh. The rose house wine is amazing particularly for the price. Cheapest but best dinner we had during our week in Crete, so good we went... More

My wife and I went here twice during our stay in Piskopiano, and both times we had an excellent meal. The place is always packed, and it is easy to see why. Not only did we have better food here than some of the other places in the area, we also paid a lot less! Most of the restaurants are... More

Very good, tasteful food. Nice small plates with a big variety to enjoy from. Prices are good. You have to go early to find a place to sit.

We visited this gem during our 2 week holiday and what a lovely place it is. Lovely sized portions and great variety and top notch food. The only draw backs are you can't book and feel a bit rushed as there is normally a queue of people waiting to come in as its so popular!!

Very busy which probably affected the service which was speedy and functional rather than the friendly welcome in most bars and restaurants we went to. Food arrived sporadically with little logic (i.e. Starters, sides mains) and although dishes often arrive as they are ready it was more muddled here and difficult to manage on the small table. Food was ok.

Very basic. You get a table, chairs, paper table cover, a list of food and a menu with pictures. Don't let this bit put you off. Portions are big so don't order too much. You can always add extra. What you see in the pic is what you get. Small variety of drinks so don't expect too much. It's cheap... More

We visited David's about 4 or 5 times during our stay so you will know by this that we obviously enjoyed it. Kids loved it and loved ordering all the different Meze dishes. We were there 3 years ago and ate there lots then too. Get there early to avoid waiting or go very late and you won't feel so... More
