This is the best place to taste the Cretan cuisine. The family has been running this taverna for over 20 years and have a long tradition in hospitality.

The food is delicious , the location is very quiet and calming, the facilities are extremely clean and the family all kind and charming.

Came across this gem of a taverna as a coincidence for lunch and it was absolutely perfect. No menu but instead we were presented with all the freshly made food in the kitchen. We wanted to choose all but ended up choosing 5 different things and it was delicious. Freshly made cheese and fresh cage tables from the family garden. We'd recommend it to anyone!

Simple and tasty, cretan cuisine in its most traditional form. Recipes handed over from generation to generation using fresh local ingredients, most of them produced by the owners. The dishes change according to season. Instead of a menu, the owner invites the customers to take a look at the available dishes so you can judge yourself what looks best! Prices are very cheap (3 main courses of meat, season's salad, stuffed zucchini flowers, 2 beers, raki, desert and bread for 35 euro!). The location is on the way back from the south beaches of Rethymno which is very convenient!

I totally recommend this restaurant. We went with my wife and our 2 children and it was the best food we had during our stay in Crete.

Although we'd been to surrounding villages many times over the years, it really takes having a car to enable one to get to this Taverna. Take the Kotsifou Canyon from Plakias for a scenic ride up to this cluster of houses & the place you want is just to the right of the cross-road upon entering Kanevos. We never saw a menu but would always be taken to the kitchen where your hostess will explain everything available.
