“Great food in a gorgeous rural setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Fantastic and rustic food. Loved it so much we went back twice. The restaurant only serves meat so fish lovers will be disappointed. The building itself is really smart, opening out into the garden on hot days. It really was one of the best meals we have had in ages. cxx

“Wonderful Patio Lunch After Visiting Balos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Great food (especially the meatballs), wonderful charming outside patio setting with great view, the perfect ambiance for a leisurely lunch following a visit to Balos.

The menu is very diverse, including duck and pigs feet. The service is slow but that's perfect for a slow paced, leisurely lunch sipping wine on the patio.

Went with a group of 10 friends and everyone enjoyed themselves. A must do after Balos!

“Wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

In Crete, it's difficult to find a restaurant which is far superior to the others because everywhere you find fantastic restaurants with above average food. However, Gambroussa was probably the best we've been to during our trip. We had dinner there twice. The decoration is great, traditional but very sophisticated at the same time and the food is remarkable. The prices are pretty acceptable. I absolutely reccomend.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

Very good quality food, typical Cretan cuisine. A bit more pricy than other restaurants in the surroundings, but very worthwhile. Whenever I visit Crete, I make sure to visit at least once. The place looks amazing.
