“Excellent ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

I saw the perfect score of this restaurant and wondered if it could be true, having had one of the most enjoyable meals of the holiday here I have to agree with the other commentators. Best to leave the choice up to George letting him know your preferences, his wife then creates authentic dishes fresh and inviting. A word of caution if using google maps it takes you outside the village, the restaurant is in the small village square oppose the mini mart.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

We were lucky to be able to walk to the taverna. The owner Giorgios was very friendly and the homemade cretan dishes served with Giorgios red wine and raki were delicious. There is no regular menu all the dishes are freshly made and based on what peoduce is available. The local sausage and fried mushrooms were favorites with us.
We've already been twice and still have time for another two or three visits. The locals we met there were also very wecoming.

Definitely worth making a trip here to eat and experience the real crete.

“Great Cretan Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The Taverna is a 15 minute walk from where we are staying. The food was fantastic, traditional Cretan food. We were a table of 6 and sat outside the restaurant, we had a view of the mountains which is perfect when eating dinner. There is a set list of food which you choose from, with homemade wine and homemade Raki to end.

Giorgios, the owner, is really friendly and helpful and will make sure you have a great evening. The other locals who were eating there were also very nice and made us feel really welcome!

Definitely going back this trip, probably as soon as tomorrow!

“Great Place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

This restaurant is a cute little hide-away with amazing service and food. The dishes are amazing, as well as the homemade desserts. It is a cozy place, great to sit back and relax, and even watch some basketball and soccer games with out the shouting. I also recommend the thai chicken dish, one of their specials. I will definitely go back!!!

“Most genuine cretan food you can get.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Visiting this taverna is like beeing invited to a greek home with home made food.

Me and my wife were lucky to live in the villige of Amnatos or else we would'nt have found this lovely place.

The place is simple and genuine, the service is friendly. The food is the best! The chef who kooks the food told us she makes the same food in the taverna as she would at home for her family.

So if you want to get away from the touristy restaurants and get a real genuin cretan food made with love, then this is the place!
