Excellent home cooked food and friendly service minded staff. I think they are all from the same family. It´s about ten minutes off the main street, but it´s definately a place you should not miss.

This restaurant is amazing! If it's traditional Greek food you're looking for, cooked by mum, served by daughter, then this is the place. Zucchini balls, stuffed aubergine, lamb, homemade yogurt, all excellent

Super great restaurant in the Stalos area. It was a Little hard to find, but it was the time well spent. Fantastic great food, authentic kretan food. We had lamb / meatballs. I have never had lamb, made this great before. We talked with the employees, and they also wanted better signs from the main road to the restaurant.

In Danish: Det kan være svært at finde restauranten i mørke, men det er bestemt det hele værd, at lede. Rigtig god mad, super betjening, billigt!!!

We visited this delightful family run restaurant a number of times during our stay. Lovely traditional local dishes cooked by the mum, with the daughter talking us through the menu. Highly recommend the lamb cooked in olive oil and the moussaka, but all the dishes are great. Excellent hospitality!

The restaurant was a bit uphill from the big road. The food was truly the best in the whole Crete. It was real authentic mother’s food and so tasty. Service was great! We will come again.
