Made a detour to this taverna when on a day out because of good reviews. It was worth it. Had some food from the menu that I hadn't seen before, such as wild bulbs (resembled pickled onions) and domatokeftedes. OMG. Four main meals two of...More

In a village near Armenoi is an unassuming taverna - except it's not. Kostas is a true professional: truly welcoming and a polyglot to boot. And more importantly a divine chef. The food is traditional Cretan and so tasty. We ate here more than once...More

We thought we had died and gone to food heaven!!! We didn't order off the menu, but instead, Kostas (the owner) chose the dishes. Every single thing we ate was out of this world! I don't know how Kostas does it! He somehow creates this...More

We visited Goulediana via Airbnb and were advised by our host to visit this taverna... we returned most nights. It has the magic of the 'chocolat' shop of Juliette Binoche... the chef/owner is a superstar with panache... of yours close you must visit, the food...More

We arrived at 2pm on a weekday so like so many restaurants we've been to out of town it was just us. It opens at 2pm in the week. The owner was just the right balance of welcoming and relaxed so it didn't matter that...More

We came here due to a recommendation. Quite simply, the BEST food we've enjoyed on Crete in more than 40 years of holidaying here. You can't fail to pick a winning dish, whatever you choose but we had the Goules salad, goat's cheese with plum...More
