We went here on a recommendation, after we found it, ordered the meals of the day and loved them! The owners were very friendly to us, the house wine was good. I will definitely come back the next time we are in Crete!

Delicious food, fresh local produce, true flavors, excellent vegan choice. Fast and good service. Eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, so, highly recommended. We adore this place. We hope to come back soon. Fabio and Maria from Italy.

We made a special trip here which took us over an hour, having read previous reviews. We were relieved to see a good variety of veggie food, and it is also a member of the Veggie Hotels group. Previous reviewers have commented on the hostess' behaviour as being brusque, but this was not the case and she was very friendly... More

Hello again dear customers, what a pitty you did not say anything when you were here, we could have served you an other dish. The chickpeas in the vegetable mix were not burnt (what would mean black or dark brown), they were crunchy and other guests were very happy exactly because of this same dish. And yes, the aubergine salad... More

This little hidden gem a few miles from the beach and set with a view of the olive groves made for such a lovely quiet evening setting after a hectic day. The hostess was so welcoming and went through the menu with us and we found it hard to choose which dish we wanted as they all sounded so nice.... More

We really looked forward to have a nice vegetarian meal in Greece. The reviews were so rewarding! I went in the restaurant to ask if we have to pay cash. The lady who came out of the kitchen was very unfriendly. "Cash", was her answer. When I asked if she knew where the nearest cashdispenser was, she replied that "She... More

Ifigenia is a vegetarian restaurant and guesthouse near Plakias. From Plakias it is just over a five minute drive, taking the furthest right turn option at the junction where the other options head towards Lefkogia or Mirthios. Without neighbours, Ifigenia has the feel of being in the middle of nowhere giving it a the image of a rural retreat. There... More

We came here twice during our holidays. The first time, we'd stumbled in by chance (which goes to show that chance is an excellent travel guide), and we enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere so much that we returned for the Friday buffet, which was Cretan in our case. This place is also where we were introduced to the... More

A good experience to find that vegetarian food may be something more than a meal. And all that for very little money. Don´t miss it at night!!!

We went here for an "Arabic Evening" which was a buffet of middle-eastern dishes. The food itself was good vegetarian but the general atmosphere was, well, odd. The proprietor was friendly and attentive, although I thought was because the others there were a large group, so she didn't want us to feel left out.
