This was the perfect delicious post-beach meal. Not only was the pizza the best I’ve ever had in Europe, they also had amazing organic wine that comes from right from their own vineyards.
Antigoni is a multi-generational family owned restaurant that cares about it’s customers as well as the quality of the food they serve.
It also has a lovely spot in the back (which you can’t see from the road) that has a view of the ocean).

I highly recommend this place.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the Holy Monastery of Chrysoskalitissa and before moving on to Elafonisi beach and we are so glad we did. We were warmly welcomed as we went through to the shady courtyard at the rear of the café which was cool in the midday sun. We ordered a selection of Cretan dishes and the local Mythos beer. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and friendly service. Our advice would be not to overlook this taverna whose curb appeal isn't quite as quaint as other tavernas - once you're through those doors you'll be sure to enjoy the experience.

We have just spent 2 weeks in this region and ate here 2 times, once in the restaurant outside where we enjoyed the food and the view and the second time we phoned and picked up a pizza. The takeaway pizza was large and enough for two for sure! We had ham, mushroom and salami as toppings and the base was crispy and fresh. The other restaurants in the area offer traditional Greek food and it’s nice to have a change and these pizzas are amazing. Highly recommended. The service and hospitality is wonderful too. We also had the chef's salad both times with our pizza and was amazing too! Pictures from the takeaway meal.

We were travelling to Elafonisi and came upon this small taverna on the road to the beach,about 4km from Elafonisi village.

The owner (George), his daughter (Maria) and mother are Cretan greek people who also lived in Canada for a time, hence the Canadian pizza dishes.

In addition to the italian cuisine, the taverna makes amazingly good local Cretan dishes. I had a ground-beef dish with a tomato base sauce with perfectly cooked french fries and it was heavenly.

Maria and George made us feel very welcome and at home and we're very happy we visited. George invited us to come again to taste his famous lamb-dish - definitely an invitation that we'd like to follow up on! Recommended!
