Visited Arkudaina a week ago and was amazed! Products from their own garden, prepared with joy and love... this is the best Cretan taverna until now.. not a traditional, but excellent thinking on foodways. I have been travelling all around Crete and eating in most exceptional palaces during my 25 years of career as an author of tourist guides..

The best combination of traditional Cretan tastes with inventive flavours and combinations. Our host was entertaining, and his suggestions off the menu are spot on. Our boys first tasted snails here at ages 13 and 16 - and liked them! The atmosphere under large, low hanging trees in a playful courtyard was just right and quirky. You typically would find this caliber of restaurant in the middle of a youthful urban center. Located on the up slope of central Crete, it is an amazing find.

This restaurant was an apocalypse for us! The SALAD was fantastic, a mix of great vegetables, fruits and nuts, all courses were great and the service excellent!!! the products they use come from their own gardens and animals !!! The courses combine cretan cuisine with fantasy and the result is magnificent!
