The service, ambience, food - everything truly the best. We ate there 3 times and always had perfect dinner. Each day they have limited number of dishes so you have to be fast to have a nice choice. It's our favorite restaurant on Crete.

Wonderful little beach, nice and sheltered in the October breeze. We had a delicious lunch in the taverna, home cooked specials displayed on a blackboard and friendly staff, with raki and orange cake for dessert! Perfect

This was the best restaurant in Paleochora when we visited over 20 years ago. Back again this year and its still as good and has hardly changed. A lot busier now though. Delicious food and surprising extras
