It’s a little way off the beaten track but it’s worth the drive out! Family run, friendly simple authentic cuisine. If you want to experience crete at it’s original best in a comfortable genuine setting with great service then this is for you. We loved...so much we went twice! Don’t miss out on the free drink at the end - it’s not raki! It’s homemade sweet interesting ( and a bottle is coming home with us) This is too rare a find, expect grandma’s recipes and be delighted that someone cares enough to still cook and serve this way. All in all we loved it - simple pleasures are what makes Crete special and this is a culinary example of it at its very best.More

The best food we've had in Crete served by the friendliest family who genuinely care about the food they are serving. We all shared the moussaka, the oven lamb and the pork with prunes which were exquisitely delicious. We felt so welcomed and would love...to return again. Definitely worth making the extra drive (which is stunning along the coastline) up to this village to try this traditional Cretan food. You will be so pleased you did.More

We really enjoyed all dishes. Many thanks to Tzina and Kostas for their great hospitality. Home made dishes cooked as only Kretes know. Definitely worth visiting and value for money. After an enjoyable meal they serve fruits and a unique home made liquor for which...you must definitely ask the recipe. We are coming back soon to enjoy more! You must definitely visit!More

The food was delicious and the service is great.The tzaziki and the kalitsounia were also very good. The kalitsounia has very good dough and looks especially appetising. The melted cheese inside is very delicious. I would definitely recommend this to someone else and come back...again.More
