Georgia you try too hard. I had a fish stew and my husband had a type of beef stew with whole onions. We would have rather had the meal simple and authentic without it being decorated around the plate with beetroot and mashed potatoes. Also a choice of rice or chips would have been good. Please don't assume every British person wants chips. However your cooking was delicious.

Once again for these 12 years which we have visited this lovely, cosy family restaurant was not disappointment at all. Mama Georgia and her husband have 4 grown up daughters (Jenny, Evi, Anna and Iris) and 1 of them were working in a restaurant and 3 of them has their own business. Anna has a hair salon and Iris is running a souvenir shop with her husband in a village.
They had a helper with service in a restaurant, a nice family relative young man (Alex).

About food, which is most significant in my review anyway:) Mama and her co-workers are making a little bit different foods than most of cretan/greek restaurants, she uses lots of vegetables and spices for making tasteful food, but not that much to cover food´s own taste.

Especially Mama´s greek plate has delicious (grilled lamb,pork,sausage and veal:), papoutzakia (eggplants halves filled with a ground beef mixture, topped with a béchamel sauce.
and souzoukakia (meatballs with tomatosauce) as well. Of course Mama is serving many other traditional cretan foods and most meals for tourists (Menu).

Service is excellent, because we have known this family so long time, so i can not say anything bad about it and when is time to pay a bill, they offered 0,5 l housewine (white or red) or Retsina if we wanted and after that for a dessert, small 4 portions Raki bottle (Tsikoudaki) of their own, but if you do not like that, you can left it without drinking it:)

Most of all, athmosphere is great, almost on the beach and you can sit in a shelter or in a garden outside, there is a playing ground for chidren too.
