Nice place, delicious and very cheap, healthy, food. The owners make the cheese and the animals are theirs. It is nice also for families with little children. We will be back to this - for sure - once we are in Crete back again.

Were driving back from Sougia to Chania and stopped in Kandanos for dinner. This place serves fantastic traditional Cretan food. The "Kreatotourta" (a meatpie) was super delicious.
