We went here on a recommendation from a Greek friend and found ourselves in one of the best restaurants we have ever been to in Crete. Although busy on the night, the staff made us feel immediately welcome. We were shown to our table and the waiters appeared with bottled water, small bottles of raki and honey raki, bread, dips and of course the menus. The starters of cougette balls, deep fried mushrooms, fava, spicy cheese dip, wild greens and a large salad were with us in no time. The main courses of chicken in cognac, lamb in honey, chicken kebab, lamb chops and two vegetarian briam were amongst the best we have ever eaten and the portion sizes are more than generous. All the food we had was superb, the local wine very drinkable and the raki free flowing, all this for less than 20 euros each. However, it's the staff that really make this a restaurant not to miss!!!

Honestly the best food i ate at Crete.. So many different dishes couldn't choose the best of them. I recommend to try at least once.. Pretty inexpensive about 10€ to 15€ per person. A must to eat if you visit Crete!!! Thank you all dishes,service,beverages etc was perfect!!!

Walked here from Vamos village.
Atmosphere was subdued on the night we visited even though the restaurant was nearly full.
Food was no better than average and my wife (almost vegan) was disappointed in what was presented for her main meal.
Staff are very good and friendly.
Price was normal for the location.

Where should i start.. Parasia is one of my favourite restaurants in Greece! Amazing food, great ambiance and most importantly the staff is fantastic, always with a smile and a great attitude! If you havent visited this place you have to! It offers a wide selection of greek food, great wine and drinks and in the end they always treat many different sweets and on Saturdays they also have live cretan music.. I highly recommend it! you wont regret it :) cheers!

No words to describe the food. Traditional and fusion, absolutely unique. The service out of this world. 6 stars, worths every penny.
