Taverna Drousoulites
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 September 2017

After a hair raising journey over the mountains on boulder strewn roads we stopped for a beer and a sandwich.. Having ordered, our neighbours at the adjoining table showed us the badly cracked glass in which their beer had been served. They left most of their food and commented on how bad the taverna was. "Service" to us was by a waiter who was uninterested to the point of rudeness and ridiculously slow. Our ex neighbours' table was wiped down by his slower moving colleague who wiped the table with a rag which had presumably been washed out on roughly the same date as the disgusting toilets had been cleaned. The toasted cheese and ham sandwich was edible but having seen our waiter preparing drinks with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth subsequently I left feeling somewhat uncomfortable. In the words of Scott of the Antarctic "Great God! This is an awful place"

The service was bad - it felt that even the worker didn't like the atmosphere in this restauranta. Food was tastless and expensive, portions small, bread (old) and meat was dry. Microwave oven was used to heat the portions. Soft drinks tasted like water.

The only bad restaurant-experince in Crete.

Had burger it was really nice some people complained about not having it in a bun but you get 2 burgers, chips and small side salad couldn't complain. The place and the guy who served us did remind us of Dusk till Dawn lol but was very friendly probably wouldn't stay after sunset lol. Considering he was serving a few people he did really well. Moussaka tasted plain and but traditional. No issues with service or staff we are also planning on driving from Chania to the gorge and will be back again for food.

After the visit of the castle, we were looking to a place drink and eat. It was too hot to walk and then we went there. Big mistake!
This is maybe the only place in Crete where the food is really not good ( "lamb chops" are overcooked and unidentified pieces of meat, even the tomato are not good! ) and the staff is unfriendly.

Worst moussaka on Crete and also the rest of the food our group had was tasteless. We were 12 people and 2 of us got no food at all. I can not recommend this place to anyone.
