We've eaten here several times for both lunch and dinner. It's a winner! The restaurant is right on the sea-front and is owned and managed by Eli (an English lady) and her Greek husband. The menu is really quirky with lots of unusual dishes. What...More

Over the past two weeks I have eaten here about seven times. I have tried other tavernas in Paleochora but keep returning. Why? The food here is incredible-especially the starters. The dishes are simple but delicious-Greek food with a twist. They really think about the...More

Kapetan Dimitris open in May 2010 ...The cuisine is Cretan tradition with a modern twist....Old Cretan recipes transform to a new fresh recipe full of flavor using the best local ingredients presented in a more appealing way.....menu changes every two days to make sure that food is always fresh and has not been left over the fridge for days.....we also offer a variety of the Best Cretan wines but also from the rest of Greece......
