We are repeat visitors here as the food is consistently good. The menus is traditional Cretan/Greek with a little more to offer than some others we have visited, fish is also available.
My favourite is the Rooster and home made pasta ribbon, ironically a similar dish highlighted by Rick Stein in his last visits to Greece. The best Taverna in Vamos and worth the drive from Kalives.

Generally good and fresh Greek dishes.
Decent wines. In Vamos this place is a favourite choice.
Can be very busy.

We eat here on our first night. These were without doubt the best stuffed vine leaves i have ever had. The goat was excellent and the salad divine!
We were surprised how good the food was in many of the smaller tavernas and villages that we visited,but i have to say this one stands out as one of the best!

Nicely situated in the centre of Vamos, we visited this taverns twice in a two week stay in the area, but were not over impressed with the food. It was cheap enough but some of the more interesting items on the menu were unavailable. Awful free dessert.

Despite the critics we've read, the food was awful. It may be considered adequate for tourists, but for us Greeks it was a disappointment. Pork full of fat - inedible, apaki overcovered by spice, and lack of personel knowledge concerning alcohol.
The owner must decide if he will run a tourist dine place or if he will honor the famous cretan cuisine...
