This is the real Greece. This is the food they mean when they talk about the Mediterranean diet and Crete. This is Greek hospitality as it used to be before the EU dirtied the waters. Simple, basic, authentic, generous and real.
The food is fresh, seasonal, and truly local... made the way food was cooked in much of Greece 20 or 30 years ago. Simply prepared with local ingredients on wood fire in terracotta pots mostly.
IF you want a taste of authentic Cretan country/rustic cooking, go to Dounias.
No ridiculous 20 page menus. Just ask Stelios what he's got, or better yet, ask him to bring you a sampling of what he's cooked that day. You will be happily satisfied at the end of your meal.
His homemade white wine is excellent as well.
The new Greek minister of Tourism should get a clue and pay this place a visit rather than worrying about building new golf courses. This is what the country needs more of, not another spa/resort.
