We didn't know about this place and ended up there because it looked nice. And nice it was!!! Great service, luxurious atmosphere. We doubted if we'd checked the menu well enough, wasn't this going to be too expensive for us?? They set the table really nicely, a bottle of water and raki. The menu is varied, good prices. We saw bread on the menu so thought this was not included as we were used to and ordered some garlic bread (1,80). The Greek salad was € 5,00, Boreki 6,80 and small mixed grill 16,-. Soon the warm bread andere breadsticks arrived. So that was included after all! So nice with tomato's and olive tapenade. The Boreki was really good, the small mixed grill not so small (ie huge!). We wereld stuffed! Andere then wereld offred a really Nice icecream on the house. So, whether you're near or far away from this place: go there. It's so worth the trip!

Went to Palio for the first time last night. The food and service was excellent (try the seafood pasta) As well as an outstanding meal, you also get a free bottle of Raki,dips and we also got chocolate cake to finish!!. It's a must for anyone visiting Kolymbari. We are going back again tomorrow.

The restaurant came well recommended and we decided to spend our last evening in Crete here. We had a table by the waterside and it was the ideal setting.
I had stuffed vine leaves followed by Moussaka - all typical Greek food but nothing typical about the cooking here - it was simply FANTASTIC. The best vine leaves and the best moussaka I've ever eaten! 2 x 3 course meals, with a couple of rounds of beer, wine, orange juice and a coffee, plus tip and we'd spent €40 - such good value.

We have just returned to England after having 10 days in Rhapaniana, we visited Palio Arhontiko twice this year and both times were brilliant just like last year we are going again in September and the 1st port of call will be the best restaurant in Kolombari, portions are big so you may want to share a starter.

We have been traveling Greece for over a month & Palio A served the best meal we have had. The fresh calamari was perfectly done. Location is beautiful, service excellent, fine quality tableware. Complimentary Raki & water when seated and a delightful desert creation to end a perfect meal. Surprisingly Palio A is one of the lower priced restaurants along the strip.
