Really recommend coming here if you are staying in Agia Marina. We found this restaurant in the last night and the food was fabulous, the service was great and the staff was lovely. Best meal we had all week.

We tried this place early in our first stay in Crete and was not disappointed. The mousakka there is delicious! Food is properly made in traditional greece way, and service is great. A+

At the first night of our stay in Crete we have found this small family run Taverna and we absolutely loved it! Very tasty traditional food, great service - we've been told we can have any sauce or any addition or changes to our food - that the chef "do magic" and he really does!
The food was exactly as we wanted it, well prepared and presented with fresh vegetables and herbs. The portions are very generous, so make sure You are hungry on arrival!
We have tried a number of restaurants while on our stay in Agia Marina, but we've came back to The Laughing Pig twice(!!) because this one was far The Best.
Don't miss out on tasty bread starter with their signature dips.

First night here in Crete.
Walking along looking for some authentic Greek food to fall within my budget.
Usual suspects along the Agia Marina.
Your typical mix of authentic mixed with pizza and pasta.
Came across the Laughing Pig and was attracted by the prices and the clean friendly environment.
I do believe the family are Norwegian.
Thirst quencher first, a large cold Mythos beer.
Ordered the bread with dips, very nice.
Then the mixed grill for one. I asked for the fries to be replaced by salad.
Mixed grill would easily feed 2 people. Everything cooked just right. The replacement salad was fresh.
On asking for the bill, I was presented with the bill and a sweet wine drink accompanied with a fresh light chocolate mouse with fresh cream. A complimentary gesture from the restaurant.
Overall, I had a relaxing meal within a friendly family business. I will definitely go back again during my stay in Crete.
One precaution, go on an empty stomach as the portions are very generous.

A little bird wispered in my ear there is a restaurant over there.
And what a restaurant! A very nice atmosphere and really good food. We were very lucky that we lived nearby and could taste several dishes from the meny.It was plenty of food. The Chef,Costa, was great with the flavors and presented the dishes in an exellent way. Many thanks to Bodil for her service.You're the best!!
