The tavern is in the center of Peza not far from Minoas Winery. You can select a wide choice of traditional dishes. All dishes are fresh cooked and taste very well, good quality and economic prices. The waitresses are very friendly.

The food is amazing, so do the owners. Special traditional Cretan plates. Do not miss the paidakia (lamp ribs), eggs with staka, livery Greek salad, ntakos, fried cheese pies topped with honey. Basically everything was just perfect!! Bravo!!
