This was our second year staying in selini suites just along the road from this fabulous traditional family run restaurant. Once again great food if you like it fresh and traditional.

We have been several times during our stay in Rapaniana at Alexandros restaurant, a family owned taverna run by Alexandros, his sister and his mum, who will give you a warm welcome. The food is great, a mix of Greek and Cretan specialties, the moussaka and kleftiko are just delicious. This place is a good compromise of high quality food... More

Service was fast, food excellent and tasted freshly cooked. Competatively priced, and we were given free desserts. Its on the main road, but once the sun goes down this is not a busy road. Friendly staff

The family atmosphere is great fun with a very warm welcome. The starters were amazing with delicious feta, however we were quite disappointed by the mains which were overcooked, and the shrimp didn't taste fresh.

Excellent taverna run by a lovely family. Good traditional food and very friendly service. We visited twice during our stay, make sure you go on a Saturday evening as they cook some special dishes at the weekend.
