“The tastes live you speechless!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

Simplicity at its best. Meat, fries, greek salad, local dishes such as "apaki" (pork smoked in local herbs), "staka" (a short but veeeery pleasant way to heart attack!)...Descriptions underestimates this place, honnestly. Don't go there if you don't like family run small taverns where fellowship with the owners is a "sine qua non", as well as sharing some "raki" with the "pater familia", a sui generis guy who will definately have some jokes to tell you (if you speak cretan-greek, that is!).
DO go if you apreciate local, home made food with fresh raw materials and picturesque local places. The tavern is open throughout the year, but I have been there only in the summer and we sat in the small side street in front, under a big tree and between potted herbs...
Regarding the prices...I felt like we cheated...
