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.

Excellent dishes from the traditional Cretan cuisine. A must try is the chickpeas and pork dish. Mrs Katerina and Giorgos are excellent hosts offering guests an original experience of the Cretan hospitality. Fresh fruits and delicious homemade desserts complemented the gorgeous meal.

Amazing experience, if you are in Crete you MUST visit Baxes. Sevi offers a huge range of meal choices (catering for all). It was lovely to pick the food fresh from the garden and cook it with such a friendly host. We are incredible food...overlooking the beautiful Cretan olive fields. And the highlight of the trip, Hercules the donkey!More

This experience was the highlight of my husband and I’s trip to Greece. We had originally booked a different cooking class, but it was canceled last minute, so we booked this class a day in advance. Sevi accommodated us and even helped us get transportation...to and from the farm. We were met with an incredible view of the mountainous Cretan countryside and two adorable puppies, followed by a tour of the family garden, getting to feed/pet a donkey and goats, and picking fresh herbs for our meal. For the dinner, Sevi offered many recipes for us to choose from for a four course dinner (with a vegetarian option). Sevi and her mother showed us traditional Cretan cooking methods, and we had an amazing time. The whole family was incredibly kind and welcoming. We highly recommend this unique and intimate experience.More

Last summer, my wife and I traveled to Crete with our favorite travel friends from Italy. We arrived in Crete and drove from the airport directly to this cooking class. I had no idea what to expect, since I was the non cooker of the...group, but let me tell you..I had such a great time!!! Sevi immediately greeted us and gave us refreshments and then took us on an adventure of their farm. Everything we cooked or made that day came from their farm. We found snails, picked veggies and also played with the goats before the cooking started. Sevi also translated in English for her parents who only spoke Greek, but the love was universal. The entire family was amazing and her father personally helped me cook the snails and mom taught us how to make the desserts. The experience was 10 out of 10 and I highly recommend AND would do it again!! Thanks Sevi and family!!💙More

Wow!! This was such an amazing experience! Katerina and the rest of the family made my wife and I feel so special during our cooking class, catering the menu to what we liked and showing us around their gorgeous property. And we got to play...with some of the cutest puppies as an added bonus!! This has been one of the biggest highlight of our honeymoon, and I cannot recommend this enough to anybody who wants the authentic Cretan cooking class experience.More

It was a Tuesday in April and we'd just visited Knossos. We were hungry and we drove past Baxes. It was sort of open - in the way that local tavernas are open-but-not-open! We were immediately made very welcome and given a freshly made meal...including homemade cheeses and omelette. The snail-eater was delighted that snails were available. After we'd eaten, we met the chickens (and were given 3 freshly laid eggs) and the donkey.More

We found this experience kind of on a whim. We had a few other cooking classes on other websites but really, they didn't really appeal to us or they were too far away. We asked our Airbnb hosts for a recommendation and they suggested Baxes...Cretan Experience and we are so glad they did. Baxes is situated on a beautiful orchard of olive trees, overlooking the "Tuscany of Crete", surrounded by their garden, goats (you can feed), and all sorts of animals and fauna. We were greeted by Savi, who is a wonderful host and ensured that our experience met all our needs. Unlike some cooking classes we have taken, we were able to choose from multiple menus (both for vegetarians and not) the meals that we prepared. They only use locally sourced foods, typically from their own homestead. All of this under the watchful eye of Katarina, or as we called her during our visit mom. There was never a feeling of being rushed through the preparation, eating, or laughing with new friends. The wine from their vineyards complimented our meal perfectly. The home cultivated honey was an amazing addition to our dessert. We all agreed that this experience will be one that is talked about for years to come. We may not remember what we ate, the exact recipes, or the names of the dishes we made but will always remember the way that this experience made us feel like οικογένεια (family) for an evening.More

We arrived with the Red Aries car for some nice dinner at the taverna. The view from the restaurant is amazing. We where greeting by the family and we enjoyed some of the best food in Crete. We also did some cooking lessons where we...made the Virgo Scorpios salade. A classic one. In the evening it got cold, the host was a bit harder to understand in the cold but when we got closer it all worked out great. There is also a nice play area for the kids. The kids played a lot of bowling games. They played all evening until they all won at least once. 100% recommend.More
