The food was excellent, large portions. I had cheese pies (the best I had in Crete) and spinach pies, the kids chicken fillet and chicken souvlaki. The red wine was not so good. The waiters were not very fluent in English, but everything came as ordered.

Arolithos village is the disneyland of traditional Crete. The family that owns it has made what can only be called a formidable contribution to providing a snapshot of the traditional village environment of 50 years ago. It's beautiful.

It's a nice restaurant. We went there for a lunch one Sunday, it was empty and only one table had customers. We ordered and they brought the food quickly. We liked it, just fried pumpkins were so thin, like we ate only fried flour... Probably if there are more customers the atmosphere will be better, no so empty wasn't good.... More
