Nice location. Not the best food one can find in Crete. Above all definitely over-priced. 26 euro per person in Crete is just outrageous. Hundreds of similar places in Crete offer much more quality food for less than 15 euro per person

We had a lovely breakfast here after an early visit to Knossos Palace. The omelette and yoghurt were both good, washed down with decent coffee.

Fantastic restaurant with great food and ample free parking nearby. They don't skimp on portions so make sure you've got plenty of room in your belly for their delicious salads.

We had a great meal at the Pasiphae Restaurant near the Knossos temple! The terrace is beautiful and a great place to take a break in the shadow. The dishes were great and so was the service! Absolutely recommande!
