Description: The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has participated in three contests of Traditional Cretan Cuisine in the last three years and has won twice the golden and once the silver medal.

Lovely place out of the midday sun! We had three Cretan cheeses, Cretan greens and a delicious bottle of retsina. Plus the complimentary raki and cake! Delightful

My girlfriend and I went here on the last night of our holiday after seeing the brilliant reviews. The mousakka was excellent however the whole evening was tainted by the intermittently rude waitress. Definitely nothing special as a place but worth going for the mousakka alone!

We had visited this restaurant previously and enjoyed meal. Disappointed this time. It is one of the more expensive restaurants in the town and not worth it. Roasted vegetables tasted okay but not much of them. The fried rolls with puree filling were greasy and tasteless. Lamb chops very tasty, but served with one very small potato, and inch of carrot and courgette!! The moussaka which was cooked when ordered - 25 minutes - was served absolutely scalding hot. The other members of the party had almost finished their meal by the time it was a temperature you could taste it and it was not worth the wait. More vegetables than mince. Service not too great - dropped cutlery, dripped wine etc. Very pleasant staff who require training.
