We took the drive from the M side of Crete through the gorge and ended up here. So happy we did. We were greeted by one of the sons who spoke English well. Mom, Dad and other brother (I assume) were all there. A warm fire next to our table kept the comfort in the room.

We each ordered a lamb dish but before they arrived a plate of the BEST garlic bread arrived, complimentary. It was so good. But dinner was better. One of us had lamb with onions and other lamb with yogurt. Both came w fresh, homemade fries. The yogurt dish was amazing, the sauce was so tasty. Other dish was excellent too.

Once we ask for bill another complimentary dish was delivered: 2 traditional Christmas Cookies. They were so sweet and the food was fantastic.

The host was very friendly, when I asked for chilled red wine, he immediately put some in the freezer, so when the wine arrived with the food it was nice chilled.

The food itself was so delicious, it was a mix of different Cretan meals, the smoked pork was absolutely the best I have tasted. It was smoked with wild herbs from the mountain.

The view is smashing - not to forget.
