Just a short walk from the Stalos main street with great service, excellent food and authentic local athmosphere. Highly recommended, worth the short walk!

Just a couple of blocks away from the main street is a tavern where your taste buds meet the real Crete. No tricks but magnificent traditional food made with love, served with a passion and hospitality!!!

Easy relaxed atmosphere, excellent traditional food. Kumquat raki superb. A little bit off the beaten track but easy enough to find and means the restaurant is not too full.

This is a bit off the main road, so you need to search on a map before setting off. It is worth the effort as we found out! The best Moussaka we had in our two week stay. All home made with excellent service. Lovely...More
