Description: Xasomeri means “a waste of time” in Greek. It is in the heart of the old neighbourhood of Vamos,a small but exceptional venue,full of surprises!The cuisine is plentiful and one of the tastiest in all of Apokoronas. The menu is often changing, but it’s based on the Mediterranean cuisine. The sweets are handmade, and the raki is made from the elegant grape varietals “malvazia” and “moschato".

We loved this little tavern. Superb food cooked to order, a very hospitable host and a very relaxed setting.
A mere 70 steps from our accommodation!

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews and so glad we did, what a wonderful place. Felt very traditional and the owners gave us a warm welcome. Food was excellent and wine was cheap but good.

We went to eat at Chasomeri 3 times during our 5-day-stay at Vamos. The host Dimitri and his wife have created a really unique restaurant with great food. We spent hours sitting under the grapevines, eating and enjoying the house wine (haven't been too excited about other red wines from Crete). Best part was our last night when Dimitri and his friend played a jam session of traditional Greek music with guitar and accordion. Very memorable!

We have just returned from a family holiday to Vamos & ate at this restaurant 4 times during our week as it was the best in the village. The owner & his wife are so hospitable & the food was the best weve eaten in Greece (and weve eaten lots in Greece!!). The menu is fairly concise, and during our visits we tried most things on the menu & it was all tasty.
Before the main meal, some tasty appetisers are provided - which were all lovely. Then we had starters such as stuffed onions, spicy cheese (the best), grilled prawns & camel pie (dont worry - it doesnt contain camel - just beef - but its delicious). For main courses we tried the beef kebabs with yoghurt, the cod with garlic sauce, the pork with plums, the rabbit stifado, the baked aubergine & all were delicious. The portions are just right & the plate doesnt come loaded with side veggies that you dont want - just tasty main course. There is no dessert menu but some creamy lemon pie & fruit with the usual bottle of raki are offered on the house. The food was reasonably priced & a litre of wine was 6 euros - bargain. Would recommend to anybody in the area.

Visited here last night and will be going back regularly. Received a warm welcome on arrival followed by the most superb food we've tasted in the area. Lovely laid back atmosphere, friendly service and (for us) literally round the corner.....couldn't wish for more.
