Reviewed July 29, 2011

My wife and I went to Giakoumis based on the recommendation that they serve the best lamb chops in Crete! We weren't disappointed as we both received 4 goodly sized chops (hardly any bone,) that were cooked in front of us, a plate of home-made chips and a wonderful Greek Salad - in Britain, the chops alone would have cost a fortune! The food was excellent, the ambience relaxed and the service good - locals came to eat which I felt was a good sign. The restaurant was sited in an alleyway off the market so was a spot of peace in a busy town!

Maybe it would be better if the place just closed for winter. Service was very slow (it seemed the owner itself was attending to us and his children at the same time) and we had a VERY limited assortment of overpriced ready made dishes to choose from. It is recommended by Lonely Planet, which makes me wonder if this place goes through a complete transformation during summer or the author just had extreme lucky when going there.
