Me and my girlfriend decided to go here for our final meal of our holiday as it was recommended by a few people, now we know why. It is down a little side street between the main road and the seafront and if you didn’t know it was there you could miss it. It was well presented and was very homely. The lady working there was brilliant and you could tell she was passionate about her business. We had mixed meze for 2 and everything on the plate was amazing and well presented the cheese balls were the star of the dish! For mains I had oven baked lamb with potatoes and my girlfriend oven baked chicken which was in an amazing sauce. After the meal we were given a decent size bottle of frozen raki which was a great gesture and then if things couldn’t get any better some type of traditional Greek pudding which we were not charged for. The only regret we have is not going to this place at the beginning of our holiday so we could have eaten here again.

We went to this restaurant for a daytime meal for a large group of us and the meal was excellent. We liked it so much four of us went back a couple of days later for dinner. We were not disappointed. The pork knuckle was the star for me along with the oven potatoes but we all enjoyed our food, good house wine too at a good price.

Yet again we visited Katerina at the Sokaki, and yet again the food was delicious. The prices are very reasonable, the service is excellent and the atmosphere peaceful and friendly. We have visited whenever we could every time we visit Crete (every year for the past 6 years) and never been disappointed by either the food or the welcome

In a quiet street we found this restaurant. We were the only guests. But the restaurant deserves a great public. The mother of the owner explained every dish. She had a heart for the traditional Greek cuisine. Really inspiring. The dish I enjoyed was lamb from the oven. A simple but very tastfull dish. Excellent cooked!But the dessert was really a surprise. It was made of almond flower, honey, cream and Cinnamon. Really great. A place tot visit!

I you take the trouble to seek out this restaurant you won't be disappointed, on a side road behind the police station on the front strip is this wonderful older style taverna, all the food is home cooked to a very high standard, served by the son of the chef.
The prices are surprisingly inexpensive considering the standard of the food ( 3 courses less than 12 Euro)
The set menus from which you can choose a starter main and desert are excellent and I would heartily recommend a visit 5star
