We were lucky to stay in Maza for 2 weeks. We travelled to Hania, Rethymno, Frangokastello and other places but we end up enjoying the best of our time seating under the flowered canopy at Costas's taverna and enjoying his wife's Voula never ending meals.
This is no fuss eating place. No menu. They tell you what they have and that's it. All fresh and delicious.
We had lamb, rabid, beef, moussaka, grilled meats and delicious greek salads and amazing cakes!
And the hosts are such a lovely family. Voula reminded me of my mum's cooking and big Costas has a heart as big as him. If you stay nearby you will fall in love with this place, their food and their people.
Don't come rushing though. This is a place to seat, relax and enjoy.
After 2 weeks we felt part of their family and left Crete with Maza in our hearts.
