We had dinner around 8pm and the taverna was still open. We had moussaka and stifado, both were very tasty meals. The red wine was really nice. The athmosphere is beautiful, we hope to return here one day when in Crete again.

A trip into the hills, away from the coast....we spent a wonderful afternoon here, eating and relaxing in the shade. The waitress was so warm and helpful and the food was beautiful. We went back the next day it was so good!
