“The best cretan restaurant!!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

I was at this restaurant a couple of years ago, and since then I have been longing to go back! Today, I went with my boyfriend and we desided to try some starters and I wanted the lamb in honey. First: the atmosphere is amazing! Great traditional cretan restaurant with thoughtfulness in every detail. I have not felt so relaxed and comfortable outside ever on Crete!
Seccond: the food is amazing!! All traditional and no "tourist crap". The best I had was the lamb in honey and the fetacheese in pie crust(a must have)!
Third: compared to the tourist places, the food is extremly cheap. We payed about 50 euro for 5 different plates, one special beer, one coke, with complimentary; garlicbread, olives, fruits, raki, sweets for desert.
I would insist on you going, this is one restaurant you dont want to miss!!

“Second time is even better.”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Fresh salads. Heavenly lamb. Great ambience. Wine is not so…who comes to Greece for the wine anyways? Go for the local Kissamos retsina. It always goes well with the local dishes. the restaurant is very busy with locals on the weekends.
