Just a few minutes walk away from the main tourist streets, we found this cosy restaurant in a narrow alley. The food was oustanding: Greek food interpreted creatively. For carnivores as well as vegetariens the menu offers a generous choice. It's an uncomplicated and down-to-earth, yet very charming little restaurant that lack this would-be-gourmet fuss. Instead, you get the "real... More

Food and beer selection are great. The Italian food, with Greek influence makes a wonderful flavor is hard to describe. It's really wonderful.

This was our last meal in Crete, and the one we enjoyed most. Great informal atmosphere and excellent food. The dakos, the roasted mushrooms and the risotto were all fantastic. And as vegetarians, this was one place where we didn't feel like we have to compromise on anything. Highly recommended!

This is my third time coming back to this restaurant and it truly has been the highlight of my holiday(s!) food-wise. The food is fresh and delicious, the setting is colourful and unique and the service is excellent and atmosphere super relaxed with quirky music. The menu consists of mostly vegetarian options, including some meat and seafood dishes. There are... More

I have to say that this restaurant has a beautiful scenery! Vines growing above your head, wall paintings, crooked tables, plants and cats everywhere: it just worked! Very cosy and bohemian. Perfect! There were a couple of vegetarian options, not a lot but enough! The quality of the food was great.

We were sent here with a warm recommendation by our hotel manager, and had zero disappointments! Nicely decorated, broad authentic and not expensive food and drink menu and warm hospitality. Opens until late at night, and on the night we sat there a group of young locals were singing and playing guitar for hours... :-) Worth a visit.

We visited this place for lunch and, although we found the location and surroundings wonderful, we were disappointed by the quality of the main dishes. The kleftiko (the most expensive dish on the menu at €10) was really poor; the meat was hard and generally tasteless. Our second main, the aubergine dish, was nice but nothing special and was priced... More
