This place is in the pretty tucked away village of Goulediana. You may need directions to get there but when you find this unassuming taverna you'll be amazed at the welcome and the dishes on offer. I think we tried them all as we returned several times and not once were we disappointed. On the contrary some were mouthwateringly amazing.... More

We visited Goulediana via Airbnb and were advised by our host to visit this taverna... we returned most nights. It has the magic of the 'chocolat' shop of Juliette Binoche... the chef/owner is a superstar with panache... of yours close you must visit, the food is second to none... pure heaven...

We arrived at 2pm on a weekday so like so many restaurants we've been to out of town it was just us. It opens at 2pm in the week. The owner was just the right balance of welcoming and relaxed so it didn't matter that it was just us. We had a salad with local herbs, aubergine dip, then went... More

We came here due to a recommendation. Quite simply, the BEST food we've enjoyed on Crete in more than 40 years of holidaying here. You can't fail to pick a winning dish, whatever you choose but we had the Goules salad, goat's cheese with plum dish and the best pork casserole EVER with honey - definitely not one to miss....

Our best experience so far in creta: amazing food, delicate tastes, good portions, nice chef, nice surrounding. The price is really correct for what you get and we got the dessert and raki offered. The chef was also aware of gluten-free diet and made us a special dish. Thank you really much!!!

We came across this restaurant by accident after losing our way in the mountains. Everybody was very welcoming and the food and drink was first class. A great atmosphere. The effort of finding it is well worthwhile.
