Every year we are in this area and every year we are in this restaurant- it's simply the best! Warm family friendly service with top class "home cooked Cretan food". The ambience of the place is nurtured by a profusion of Natural vegetation and olive...More

Mostly frozen fish & adequate preparation in a lovely cabin-like ambiance surrounded by flower pots & herbs. Nice people as servers. Other places offer better food & ambiance , e.g., Aris Katerina.

We had traditional Crete plates. Lamb Frikase and Goat in Tomato sauce. Some of the best plates we have tried during our traveling and many visits of other (excellent) restaurants

Really enjoyed our visits here. The sea bass was fantastic as was the various Cretan dishes we tried. Very generous hosts with complimentary raki and honey nut bar. Would visit again.

We found this place on TripAdvisor and followed others' recommendations. This was one of two excellent restaurants still open in October although, as the smaller one, was closing down 2 weeks later and running down on foods and wine. Excellent local dishes not found elsewhere...More
