My wife, child and I visited here after a recommendation from some friends whom had visited the year before. First impressions was that it was very upmarket......the waitress (amazing and very attentive), was so helpful and enthusiastic, the food is all from their own garden and livestock and was in a word ‘heaven’.......it was the best value for money in the area and the best flavours.

Highly recommended lamb chops (the best in Crete) and the pork shank......notice for men, if you like meat, pork shank all the way

Perfect view
Perfect food
Perfect staff
Perfect value

We will see you again!! :)

Ps wine was amazing too

Ps the pic is half eaten so was a lot bigger

Love this place. 10 minute walk from the villa. Beautiful home cooked food that never fails to deliver. We have been here for the past week and a bit and have already Eaten here 3 times. Great choice too. Will def be returning.

Beautiful location 15 minutes walk from our villa. Nice airy veranda to sit out. Food was fabulous. Lovely selections, beautifully home cooked, home grown vegetables and local meat. The prices were very reasonable.
It certainly pays to stay away from the tourist trap resort restaurants which are not cheap and very poor mass produced meals with no flavour. I had Lamb kleftiko which was delicious. Flavoursome lamb pieces and fresh tasty vegetables washed down with an ice cold Mythos beer. The finale was baclava ice cream!

Tried another restaurant in Prines first but once we tried Veranta we never needed to go anyway else! From the warm welcome, the good food at reasonable prices and all the little extras - even free water - we couldn't find fault. The atmosphere is friendly and casual and was only a short stroll from our villa. Do give it a try!
