We are a couple from Barcelona. We always use Trip Advisor, but rates seem to be manipulated in Crete. Probably restaurants in the first positions are those pushing satisfied customers to write reviews. After trying those in the first positions we were disappointed. Many completely regular and non-special fast food restaurants ranked as if they were fabulous. This is why we tried to explore other restaurants in the list with a lower ranking and we found Thanasis. It only had 9 reviews but all of them were good. This taverna is a non-touristic place. We were the only two customers in the restaurant which is one of the typical indicators not to sit down. Unfortunately this would have been unfair. They offer very good traditional dishes at very good prices. The waitress was very helpful and very nice. We recommend vine leaves, fava and apaki. Food is far better to many other low cost places, atmosphere is very good, service is also good, and you can eat in a peaceful terrace in a non-crowded and non-polluted street. Too bad we discovered this place in our last day in Crete. (PD: they do not ask you to recommend them in Trip Advisor ;) )
