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.

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 29 September 2022 via mobile

We were very lucky that this restaurant was very close to our apartment so we found it whilst going for a walk on our first morning in Crete. We only had 10 nights but ended up here five times. The food is fantastic, traditional Greek...in style, and your host, Yannis is so very welcoming. The prices are very reasonable too (and don't forget your doggy bag if it's too much for you!) We met repeat customers on a couple of occasions who had travelled from neighbouring towns such is the deserved excellent reputation of this taverna. There are also small touches like a wipe for your glasses and additional handwipes waiting for you on your serviette. Then there's the toilets! They are so clean and have so many items in there to freshen up with, that it's an almost spa-like experience. If you're anywhere near then it's well worth a visit.More

Wow, what a find on day 1 of our holiday, so we came back, and came back, and … well, you get the picture. Food was beautifully presented and so tasty … all those little treats around the plate just add that extra little sparkle....This place just has atmosphere and Ioannis is such a star. So friendly (when he gets a minute to stop and chat, when he’s not run off his feet). Even stopped to give me a good talking to for not eating the sardines properly! Use your hands!! His moussaka is always made fresh, so that can be up to 20 min wait. As he said: If I pre-make it and re-heat it for a customer it would be yeuch! I wouldn’t eat it, so I wouldn’t give it to my customers. It was worth the wait! Thanks Ioannis and to all your staff too. Ευχαριστούμε πολή!More
