We ate here on many occasions through September and October in 2016, until the day they closed for the winter. The ambience, is amazing, the food is presented with an original tweak to Greek recipes and some to other international ones too. The starter portions are quite large enough to eat as a main - but all dishes are totally... More

Place is very pleasant. The food is tasty, but the portions are huge. First of all, I recommend the lamb.

We planned a walk from Paleochora and return via the Anidri Gorge with a promise of lunch at the Kafenia Sto Scolio. When we arrived it was open, but wasn't serving food for another hour or so (I apologise that cannot remember the timings). However we quenched our thirst and, after having read the interesting and varied menu, watching the... More

Beautiful drive to get there, wonderful spot with a great buzz. The blackboard menu was laid out in easy to read sections (photograph it to read at your table) and there was so much we liked the look of, we had lunch and dinner there. The pie in my title was so delicious. My Husband had the village sausage as... More

Great setting.... Restaurant is located in an old school... Beautiful terrace overlooking the mountains. Great food, 1 of the 2 waiters during our visit was less patient. Other than that the experience was great!!! Would recommend to all food lovers!!!

This remote taverna is an amazing, picturesque setting with fantastic, affordable, TRULY Cretan food. The service is great, the food is stupendous, and the setting is beautiful. If you are anywhere near Paleochora, this is a must-see.

We walked approx 5 kilometres from Paleochora to the village Andridi quite high up in the mountain, and found to our delight that the place was exactly what the guidebook had promised! The village's old schoolhouse has been converted to a restaurant and we sat in a shady yard, under a huge olive tree, with the Libyan Sea in front... More

We sought this out as it was recommended in the Lonely Planet Crete guide book. The views are lovely and the tables under the olive tree in the courtyard so pretty. The menu is written on two huge blackboards; one in Greek and one in English (thankfully!). The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is delicious, we were... More

We've been there twice because 1st time wasn't as expected and we've decided to give a 2nd chance, unfortunately it wasn't as expected neither. The place is amazing, if you go for an early dinner -I mean not Spanish, between 19.00 20.00 hours- you'll be able to see the cost and the sea while sunset. The garden is so beautiful,... More

Nice little restaurant located in the old school of Anidri village. The view is very nice and the food is better than words can describe. They only open when kitchen is ready so be patient if you go erlier. Its worth it. The service is a bit slow but the smiles are really wide. Recomended,!!!!!
