One of the best meals i ever had...

The family atmosphere, the friendly staff, the fresh virgin olive oil, the good homemade wine, the fresh hot bread, baked in the old stone oven...
The owner mrs Joanna, explained us that all the things she cooks and serves, are from her own farm, thing wich is not hard to understand, by the fact that the restaeurant is situated in a small farmers village, surrounded by goats, sheep, vegetable gardens, and a lot of fruits...

The prices are friendly, and the service is exelent, combined with tasty food and nice music.

i STRONGLY recommend that restaurant. :)

Found this Taverna after and adventurous drive in the mountains. So glad we stopped. Our meal was perfect - greek salad, rabbit, spinach pie, bread & oil oil, local wine & raki with walnut cake and watermelon for dessert. Incredible view and prices. We may visit again before we leave Crete.

This phenomenal experience with home made Cretan food and hospitality by Neu Roumata tavern will be remembered forever. Gorgeous bread with olive oil. Fabulous Cretan pies with herbs. Tasty mizithra - soft cheese made by the tavern. Zucchini boureki just melting in your mouth. Grilled lamb with its all juices. Beautiful orange peel in honey bath and home made nut cake with honey - were like a dot over "i". We felt welcome like at home by Mama!

We were unbelievably lucky that the tavern was open yesterday (for a guided tour), if you plan your visit off mountain season it maybe worth a prior call to check.

Although located a fair way out of the centre of Chania, it is worth your while to make the scenic journey to taste this delicious cuisine.
We went as a large group to celebrate some staff retirement and despite our large number (40-odd people), the service was quick, friendly and efficient, without the waiters disregarding their other customers. The food was basic Cretan, with a large array of starters and salads and an even wider variety of meats, yet vegetarians were not left hungry. The house wine was tasty, not the usual heavy type usually found in these parts.
The restaurant has ample parking and scenic views, with a traditional rustic decor. Highly recommended for those who want the true Cretan experience without the "touristy" aftertaste.
