Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Friendly, family-run taverna with excellent food. In April it was chilly in the evening but they had wind shutters up so I could still eat outside (and offered a heat lamp which I didn’t need). The food was absolutely delicious, freshly cooked zucchini fritters with...tzatziki (oh, the touch of fresh mint with the cucumbers and garlic!) and then lamb from the daily specials. Service, house wine, and value were excellent. So glad that this has reopened for the season!More

One of the best family restaurants we found in Crete. Everything was delicious. If you want to taste real Greek - Cretan food, cooked with care with the best fresh ingredients like they do it at home, this is the place. For me best “tsigariasto”...ever.More

We were just looking something quick to eat on our way to Matala and we almost accidentally stopped here. Oh what a great choice we made. The waitress were super nice and the food was absolutely fantastic… when we taught that we were full already,...we ordered some deserts. I needed to pay immediately otherwise I would order something else😀. Strongly recommendedMore

On the road to Preveli we chose the wrong way, but we ended up in this small restaurant. Mom's kitchen is amazing. We tried rabbit with olive oil and lamb with handmade pasta. They serve for free pomegranate liqueur and yogurt with fruits.

Wonderful food, excellent service, local cretan kitchen, you can easily find it because it is on the road from Rethymnon to Spili, but this is not a disadvantage: you forget everything when you start to eat this delicious food. Just try it.

Charming taverna near Spili. Delicious selection of appetizers, with very tasty specials and hearty salads. Selection of wines (although we had the pine-scented house white) and beer on tap. And prompt, friendly service. Will return!

Great food and atmosphere and at a very fair price. Kitchen looks very clean and the food is simple and above average. I have worked and lived on the island for 2 years and this is definitely on of the better tavernas.
