On our very first day in Crete, after along trip from Italy, we decided to go for dinner in this restaurant close to our apartment. And it was the best choice we could have done: goos appetizer, great main dishes, and perfect atmosphere!

I had lunch at the Taberna with my son, the atmosphere is nice, at-home, I guess family-run business, very nice people and place. The lady offered a couple of dips as appetizers, tequila (?!) shots and tasty yogurt with jam at the end, and was...More

On the main road into Vamos from Chania/Kalyves, directly opposite the turning to the Vamos Health Centre. On a pleasant, comfortable terrace overlooking the road, pretty typical Cretan cuisine is served excellently cooked and prepared by friendly, hospitable staff. There seemed to be as many...More
