This is our favourite restaurant EVER!! We stumbled on this gem 8 years ago and ate there every night. It's a place where the meals we had stayed with us for years. We couldn't wait to go again when we visited Vitsa. The food is exceptional. The owner is a wonderful person and an exquisite chef. He knows mushrooms and... More

Excellent concept, polite staff and great dishes. Pickled mushrooms for starters was great as well as the dakos with some kind of white cheese, mushroom spread and truffle oil. Almost all main dishes include some kind of mushrooms, pork tenderloin was excellent as well as the "today's special" steak. Red house wine was good

We had read about this on TripAdvisor and it lived up to it's great reviews. The only bad thing was that we went after 4 days of too much eating all over Zagohoria. You need to go on empty! The restaurant is fun and interesting and the chef/owner is very welcoming, helpful certainly a great cook. I had a mushroom... More

I have rated this review as 5* so it does not affect the restaurant's overall rating. In fact, I simply want to comment that I find it disrespectful that the restaurant owners have commented on my past review (which was neither negative nor positive) to seek to correct my impressions of the restaurant.

Anyone can sign in Tripadvisor with a pseudonym and review any restaurant. It's only fair that we can respond to negative [anonymous] reviews to defend our work and reputation and correct any negative impressions created by comments we deem unfair, untrue, unfounded or malicious. More

Restaurant with an already established good reputation since it was full. Nice, cozy and clean interior but not adequate considering the number of clients. All the dishes we chose from the mushrooms' menu were simply delicious accompanied with a tasteful semi dry rose wine. The serving staff were doing their best to please all and bring the dishes on time.... More

Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our restaurant. Indeed service on a busy long weekend can be a challenge. Thankfully most of our customers can appreciate a laid- back relaxed dinner and understand that a full service wine restaurant, with all items on the menu cooked to order, in a mountain village, is not a pit stop...

Coming to Zagorohoria I expected to eat meat meat and meat. But then I read about Kanela & Garifallo in TripAdvisor and I said we had to try it. And boy was it worth it! We tried to go on Friday but the place was packed so we made a reservation for the next day and went back on Saturday.... More

It is a nice place with a lot of great dishes with a lot of different mushrooms. The only negative thing was the somewhat slow service.

On a busy long weekend one must always expect a little delay, remember to leave your city anxiety behind, relax and enjoy the good food, besides all of our food is cooked per order, super fresh!! More

We heard about the place from traveling website! We decided to go for a dinner. The food was good. The prices were fair enough for the food quality! It was more expansive than any other tourist restaurant but it wasn't too much (60€ for 4 ppl including alcohol) I'm truly recommend for everyone to go and have the place experience.

What a gastronomic treat! I was with a group and was taken here for lunch. Our pre-selected menu consisted of 5 courses, each prepared with a different mushroom - even dessert. The chef and owner, Vassiles, was very kind to spend al little time with us and tell us about each of the mushrooms that were used to prepare our... More

Unique restaurant with cozy, romantic atmosphere specializing in Gourmet Mushrooms. Taste more than twenty different wild mushrooms through the year cooked in unique combinations. Plenty of vegetarian dishes as well as excellent local meats from this mountainous region. Inspired by local and international cuisines, this restaurant also offers an excellent wine list representative of the best Greek vineyards. Cap off your meal with delicious homemade desserts and the chef's own liquors made with local wild fruits.
