“Good food, generous portions and hospitable staff”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Luckily this restaurant was one of the few open during our stay in Crete (early April), so we got to patronize it twice! And it did not disappoint! I especially enjoyed the stuffed grape leaves and fried squid. The staff was also especially friendly. First they made a balloon out of a rubber glove for our baby, which made her very happy. Also my father dropped his wallet in the restaurant and they graciously returned it to him.

Definitely worth it!

“fantastic restaurant run by fantastic people”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

On the day of our arrival we needed something to eat and our rep recommended 2 restaurants, 1 to the left of our apartment and 1 to the right. We decided to go left and from that night thereafter! The food was absolutely wonderful from the word go. When we go on holiday we eat local food and every dish served was spot on and at very reasonable prices. But what makes this restaurant special are the people who run and work there. Yiannis, his lovely wife Tanya, Dimitris and the other members of staff all make you feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

“Legendary Greek hospitality”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

We are from India and were keen on authentic Cretan food, which somehow got lost in Hellinisation, Europization and globalization. Yianni gave us a superb Greek lunch, which included vegetarian fare (thanks to his charming Dutch wife who is Veg and understands the Indian concern) and then told us to come back the next day for genuine local cuisine. Which we did, and sure we got a rare treat. Lavish desserts came on the house. Wish to see this little traverna get due recognition.

“Amazing traditional food”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

Fantastic food and a very warm welcome, The chef comes out to greet you and talk you through the menu, the kitchen is exposed and very clean, the only thing is the view isn't great but sit with your back to the road because the food it way better than anything you will eat on the seafront. This is the only traditional home cooked food we had, the other eateries are all the same.
Just a shame they dont have a branch in London!!!

“Very tasty”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Almost in center of Hersonissos.
Very nice and pretty fast service. I got the BONUS - Greek dessert, even I've orderd only traditional Greek salad. With the bill always brings candy.
When the dishes are presented, the chef comes to comunicate with the visitors.
Just one negative thing - taverna is near the busy crossing. And the view is not so nice.
But still, there is very tasty. Atmosphere is also nice.
