The food and service here is fantsastic. The prices were incredibly low for very very good qaulity food. As said in other reviews the Kleftico and Stifado are pretty much the best we have ever had. Try them both. It a short but very pleasnt walk form the lake but worthwhile

Tried Knossos this afternoon, it had to be done as given its number 1 status on TA.

We were the only ones there, and the owner didn't try and talk us into going inside, unlike all the places at the lake/everywhere else abroad. This made us want to go in even more!

Basically, the food was fantastic, drinks the same, and the owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome without hovering over us too much. He even gave us a free desert, which we didn't ask for! The whole thing cost 15 euros less than the place at the lake we ate at yesterday, and was twice as nice.

TIP: try the Greek plate. So many tasty things on one plate, I couldn't even finish it.
