Porfira Taverna is a great place to have a great tasting meal at a reasonable price, and best of all Vangilis and his family run the place like a family kitchen. I have eaten here many times and gladly passed the other tavernas to get to it.
The food is Cretan home cooking, Vangilis' mother and father work the kitchen while Stella takes care of the 15 tables and Vangilis greets customers and makes food preparations and just takes care of anything that needs taken care of.
They love to have children around, and even have a play area complete with a treasure chest just off the kitchen.
If you read my other reviews you will note that I don't like being treated like a tourist and here I am in heaven. Love it, Love IT, LOVE IT! If you come to Crete the drive to Nopigia for a meal is definitely worth it!
