So found this restaurant listed in a travel guide for Crete. We read that it is further away from the sea front & that it would be cheaper & the food is excellent.
So we pitched up to it, not too far fromt he sea front of Chania. We were able to get a table outside underneath a tree which provided us with a nice cooling shade on a 34 degrees summers day.
There were many locals there eating the food so I was optimistic about getting a traditional Greek meal.
The main waiter was very friendly and welcoming & was took our orders. He suggested for us to have a look at what was being cooked their kitchen. I decided to go for the moussaka which was excellent & was cheaply priced. I washed it down with a 2.50 euro 500ml bottle of Mytho lager (ridiculously cheap compared to London). My girlfriend got the Greek sald which was a huge portion. We had freshly baked bread served complimentary as well.
It was just excellent home cooking. You're not going to get michelin starred service or presentation but what you will get is food served with love like you mum would have made for you regardless of what your home cuisine is.
You read about the Cretan hospitality but you will never realise how it is true until you are treated like a friend by the staff.
After our lunch we asked we were presented with halva which was served with local honey which was delicious. After that we were then served with watermelon, both of which we had not ordered & thought we were going to have to pay for. NOT AT ALL. All of this was COMPLIMENTARY & we were really grateful for it as it was delicious.
I would recommend this family taverna at the drop of a hat.
