We have been going to Manolis for several years and the standard of food gets better and better. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere which captures the true spirit of Creten cuisine. It is a family run business and each member of the family...More

Having tried five recommended tavernas we rated this a very close second. The food is excellent with a special every day and traditional cuisine to choose from, and the setting is very nice. The staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.

Busy and friendly. The food was gorgeous and plenty of choice, mostly traditional food, situated in the old village quite close to where we were staying. No problem in recommending.
