Location is in mid town. Sat outside and watched the passing parade of locals going about their business. Excellent Lamb dishes, Moussaka & Aubergine Salad accompanied by fresh bread and good house wine. There were no Zucchini Balls - all sold out as very popular!...More

Great location from which to "watch the world go by" whilst enjoying a range of drinks (with a small group of friends) at lunchtime which was accompanied by a small but lovely plate of local nibbles.

Doesn't look much from the outside and you'd think it was a locals place judging by the old men frequenting the "social club"next door. The guy that owns it was very accommodating and friendly (Zaros's own hairy biker) and talked us through the menu, went...More

We were told this was the best in the town and whilst everyone has their favourites this is now ours. The graviera cheese is stunning, chicken pastichio wonderful, souvlaki excellent, the meat comes from the butchers over the road, the bread from the bakers next...More

This was one of the best places I have eaten while in Crete. The lam chops were delicious and the house wine was the best I had during my vacation. I would definitely eat there again and would recommend this place to anyone visiting Crete.

We came for lunch on the weekday. Only an old lady was there and things moved very slow, which suited us well. We ordered a "Cretan salad" (5 euro), better know as "Greek salad", and a vegetarian lasagne (7.5 euro) with a quarter litter of...More

Travelling for many years to Greek Ilands and trying all sorts of food, this small, intimate taverna run by Efi and Dinos on the main street of Zaros is no less than outstanding. Old grandma traditional cooking, served with such concern and friendliness. Only four tables makes you feel as though you are part of the family. Delicately decorated dishes which pleased the eye as well as the belly. Really worth at trip to Zaros just to experience this taverna called I Sinantisi which means The Meatingpoint. Incredible!
