Where to begin ?! This place is a gem of local cuisine. a short taxi ride outside of Chania, will get you to this lovely tavern that has a stunning view of the surrounding hills. The food is nothing short of fantastic. Old and traditional Cretan recipes, made using the highest quality local ingredients. This is not another touristic spot... More

Arriving late in the holiday season, there were lots of restaurants closed. Fortunately this was not one of them. Set some 7 minutes from the main road, we were delighted when we found ourselves at a table that overlooked the valley. The staff were very friendly - the manager sat at the table and explained the menu to us, making... More

As a group of six we visited this restaurant twice during our time in Crete. Over the course of both visits we sampled a large selection of mezedes, all of which were fresh and delicious. The stand-out dishes for me were the snails, the lamb's liver, bourek, smoked pork and horta weeds, all of which I'd recommend if you're going.... More

We ate here on a Friday in late September 2016. The three of us had quite a few different mezze, including aubergine and garlic gratin, cretan salad, fennel pie (!), fried potatoes and staka, meatballs, smoked pork sausage, meat pie, cheese kalitsounia, stalos pies and I don't remember what else. Our congenial host recommended a number of these dishes, as... More

This restaurant was said to be a unique experience with all the prizes decorating its walls. Unfortunately, the food was nothing more than the average and the drinks (we tried raki and wine) were of the lowest quality. Service was good, friendly and quick, but this is the only positive I found that evening.

The waiters and host went above and beyond to make it a memorable experience for us... Suggested great dishes and funny banter. The food is top notch Cretan cuisine, with fresh produce (presumably from their farm below, where yo can hear hens and cockerels as well as ample olive trees and allotments growing things!), Cretan hospitality (beautiful) and a view...

I have been to the same place 2 years ago. Since then I could not wait to come back to Chania just to visit the same restaurant again. My wish came true just today. But it was so disappointing. The food had nothing to do with what it used to be. Poor food, almost cold. Overpriced. You are in Crete... More

The place to be for genuine Cretan food. Try fried snails, staka, kalitsounia, rabbit, ntolmadakia, even.... "ameletita" (and don't ask for the translation of the latter) !!!! The housewine is good. Sfakia-pies as dessert at the end. The service is great, the atmosphere (+ music) and the view are fantastic. The prices are normal.

Thank Despina-Kleanthi
