Owner dressed with the traditional Cretan uniform. He was kind and pleasant. Portions were small while prices were not a bargain. We did not have the chance to taste "antikristo" (lamp) which was the special dish. Rest of the menu was just fine.

Amazing place! Great traditional food, friendly staff and fantastic atmosphere! A place you should definately visit once in Chania. The way to Therisso from Chania is also a very impressive ride through a gorge. Don't miss it!

Calm and pleasant surroundings and very good food produced from the owners. Salads and cheese are delicious and fresh. Try the Antikristo lamp and grilled chicken chops. Very friendly people and fast service. The best choice when you want to avoid the center of Chania.

We really enjoyed our early dinner. All food was great, the staka was exceptional (delicious goat butter mixed with flour). This is a simple cretan place serving traditional dishes made of local meat (lamb and pork) and vegetables. Recommended!

The best staka cream we found on Crete, very good local meat and authentic Cretan cuisine. Hospitality was not to forget and we are pleased with all attention they gave to us. We could now say that we have been on Crete. Great find.

My girlfriend and I have been here our last night in Crete. The tavern is located in a really small town (about 20 houses) on a mountain. The place itself is awful, forget hygiene and a normal service. What really concerned us is that, when...More

First of all, we don't charge any kind of water and specially tap water. We never did that before and we will not do it. The water is free here as much as you can drink! Second, we don't have salty cheese cake in our...More

The tavern is located in the traditional unspoiled village of Therisos, a place that takes you back in time. The host is so hospitable and humble yet he represents the true Cretan culture and spirit. He will welcome you a bottle of cold tsikoudia. The...More
