The food was very good.
The service was also very good.
Prices were very low.
The view is also good but we came too late, the sun was already gone.

The portions are large; the food is well cooked; the calamaria were a delight...but there was a curious after-taste which we wondered whether it came from the nature of the oil that was used for cooking. without that after-taste the food deserves 5 stars and the folk are very welcoming.

Yes ...
They know that they have good opinions and do not try much...
Tzatziki...so - so...not enough garlic.
Tirokafteri (dip with feta and hot peppers) done differently but not bad.
Mussaka - sorry - big mistake - unfortunately consist mainly béchamel sauce and old burnt potatoes ...
Old olive oil ....
Nice lamb in cheese sauce ...
The bill for good-bye - and forget ...

In frangocastello there are many tawern’s and all have the same menu and similar prices. The only thing that make a difference is a quality. This is the worst food I had in all Crete. Mix grill was just horrible, sth as simple as Greek salad was eatable to say at least but far from good. Don’t do that to yourselfs, I have suffered enough. There are many better places with better views , location and food. This can not be nr 1 in frangocastello , the food is simply disgusting.
