We've been there at the end of September, 4 italian guys without reservation, immediately seated and welcomed. Rich menu comprehensive of classic and greek specialties, fast service and great staff attitude made our dinner one of the best in Chersonissos. Typical and nice location. Everyone should come here and pay this taverna a visit.

Me and my friend went there on Sunday night. We got very well taken care of, the staff is always friendly and want you to have a great experience! We had the saganaki with honey for starter and beefsteak for main! Both dishes delicious! If you stay in the east side of Crete this restaurant is well worth a visit!!
