Description: Excellent Taverna - and you only have 4 reviews of places in this very popular tourist destination at present. Delicious, traditional Cretan foods - including the only dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) that my girlfriends has ever eaten and superb oven-baked aubergines. I would like to write a full review of this excellent restaurant, so please add it to your site.

“Lovely staff and good food”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We eat here quite a few times during our 2 weeks, really enjoyed everything we had here, staff were friendly and were always helpful. Once they know your face you can't walk past without them coming out to say hello which is a really nice touch, wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and as much raki as you can drink!!

“A lonely place with high prices”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

We had lunch here, the chicken starter was expensive, just a few pieces of dry chicken and no sauce. We also tried their house salad, which turned out to be a large bowl of flavourless chopped up lettuce with a couple of tomatoes and few bits of cheese and nuts. Boring and very expensive. Disappointing.

The waiter was friendly but kept chatting to us throughout our meal about the troubles in Greece. A disheartening subject when you are trying to enjoy a holiday!!!

We were the only customers in the place, until just before we left. We would not return here.

“Amazing food, lovely staff”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

The girlfriend and I had the pleasure if dining in this lovely little restaurant located on the Main Street in Piskopiano. We started with Feta baked in the oven, which I would highly recommend, it was absolutely sublime. The food arrived very promptly indeed, never waiting more than 10 minutes for each course. The grilled chicken was excellent, served with homemade chips and salad. Enough on the plate to satisfy most people. In summary, an excellent experience and I would return to this restaurant without hesitation

“Lovely Resuturant.”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Myself and the wife visited this restaurant for a late tea.

We had past the gentlemen every night of our holiday as every night he told us it was 'Very Nice' we decided to give it a whirl and he wasn't wrong.

You can go for normal meals or they have a few Mezes options. We went for normal food.

The waiter was very informative and was happy to talk you though any dishes you weren't sure of to make sure you got the right thing for you which is a quality I love when eating abroad.

After some deliberation I took on a Spicy Cheese starter with some Bread and the wife had Stuffed Mushrooms. Both of these were really really nice.

Mains we both had a Greek Plate which had a mixture of Greek dishes on, all absolutely beautiful.

Here's the really good bit...

The price was really cheap!! We had 2 starters with bread, 2 main courses, 2 large beers and two glasses of Rose wine and the bill was €38

Absolute Bargain!!

Give this restaurant a try, you won't be disappointed.
